Wanting to share your work to contests, publications and exhibitions? Check out the below list for toy photography specific events. I will update this list over time. If you have an event that should be listed here, email it to me at

Do know though, that all publications and exhibitions are open to you. While they may not be toy-specific, if your image fits the theme, go ahead and enter. F-Stop Magazine is a great place to follow for info on photo submissions.
