Statewide Photographers Sought for Annual Photography Exhibit at the Brookings Arts Council
Friday, December 14 marks the closing date for accepting entries for the 40th Annual Photography Exhibit.
This judged competition and exhibit is open to all photographers 14 years of age and older. Heather Kuhlman, Executive Director, says, “We look forward to seeing the incredible photographic work that this event brings yearly. There are so many photographers that are so very talented and we are thrilled to showcase their photographic art to the public during the exhibit!”
Awards will be given in color and black and white categories with 1st-3rd cash place distinctions for the print division in each category. Any photographic print may be entered created within the last 5 years, with composite prints accepted as long as they are marked as such. Works should not have been exhibited at the Brookings Arts Council in the past.
Continuing this year is an online digital competition. Kuhlman states, “with the popularity of Iphones, Facebook and Instagram, we felt we were missing a genre of photographers that do not necessarily print their images. We wanted to give those photographers a platform to compete from as well!” Please submit your images to firstname.lastname@example.org, 800×640 pixels at 300dpi. Pictures that are submitted will be uploaded onto our website on Wednesday, January 9th. Do not submit any pictures that contain nudity, violence, obscenity, profanity, pornography or anything else that is offensive in nature. The submitted images must be the photographer’s original work. One digital winner will be announced at the Exhibit Reception on January 10th
The deadline for entering the event is December 14, 2018 with the exhibit opening on Jan. 3rd. The Awards Reception will be held on January 10th, from 4:30-6:30, with awards being presented at 5pm. The exhibit will close on February 1st.
