If you can credit the rise of digital photography with anything, it’s a massive influx of new talent snapping pics of everything under the sun. CityArts Factory is capitalizing on the burgeoning local photo scene with its second annual Best of DTO exhibition, which features the work of over 100 local photographers. There are 750 photographs loosely collected into five different categories: Lake Eola, Family Fun, Skyline, Best of Downtown Orlando and Downtown Orlando Community. A panel of six judges choose a winner from each category to receive a prize of $100, in addition to two $300 prizes for Best in Show and People’s Choice. The opening coincides with the monthly Third Thursday Gallery Hop, so wander around and maybe snap your own photos of one of downtown’s best recurring art events.
