Looking for calls looking for your medium?
To find all the photography calls in the PDF, use Adobe Reader's extended search (Shift+Control+F for PCs or Shift + Apple + F for Macs). Enter PH. Check Whole words only and Case-Sensitive and hit Enter. You'¢ll get a clickable list of all the right entries. Click on any to go directly to its whole entry. You can then drag the ones you want into a word processing program to make your own custom AOM. Do the same thing for All and then for 2D (as each accepts photography, too).
Follow a similar procedure for whatever medium you are looking for. See list of abbreviations on p. 3 and elsewhere.

AOM has nearly twice as many entries as it did two years ago?

If you had to find the original prospectus for each one of these yourself starting from scratch it would take you more than 140 hours.

We screen out the scams and the commercial galleries that charge entrance fees because they rarely help you or your career and they take money out of the art community.
