Fort Dearborn-Chicago Photo Forum is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1895. The organization promotes creativity and community and invites all who are passionate about photography to participate in its activities. Some of the world's most renowned photographers have been involved in the organization’s activities over the decades, through print salons, and educational programs. Fort Dearborn held its first print competition and Salon in 1900. Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Steichen were two of the participants and the Art Institute of Chicago co-sponsored that event and hosted the winners' exhibition. This year’s international photography competition is Fort Dearborn’s first online digital photo contest and the winning entries will be displayed through June at Morpho Gallery, 5216 N. Damen, Chicago, Illinois.
