Call for Entries - 2013 Photo Exhibit - "It's All About Atlanta"

  • July 31, 2013 · 11:45 PM

THIS IS NOT A PHYSICAL MEETING.  IT IS AN ANNOUNCEMENT THAT ENTRIES ARE BEING ACCEPTED FROM JULY 6, 2013  UNTIL MIDNIGHT JULY 31, 2013 FOR OUR ANNUAL PHOTO EXHIBIT!  PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION BELOW BEFORE SUBMITTING YOUR ENTRY!

 

The Decatur Digital Photography Meetup is Calling all members who wish to exhibit in our annual photography exhibit which will be hung this year at The Little Wine Shop in Avondale Estates.  The exhibit will hang from October 1, 2013 until January 4, 2014.  Title of the Exhibit will be, "It's All About Atlanta", and will be listed in the Atlanta Celebrates Photography catalog, issued in September.

 

Entries for this exhibit will be accepted from July 6, 2013 until Midnight July 31, 2013. Anyone who joined this Meetup group before July 7, 2013, and who has attended at least one meeting since January 1, 2013, may enter.  Each member may submit up to 2 entries for this exhibit.  Photos should have been taken since January 1, 2012.  Final selection of artists and the photos to be hung in the exhibit will be made by a jury made up of this year's Mentors.  Announcement of final selections will be emailed to all members entered in the exhibition by August 17, 2012.

 

Hanging photos may be offered for sale. Full information about the sale of photos will be sent to all photographers that are selected to exhibit.

 

All exhibited images must be matted and framed at the Matting and Framing Workshop, or must be completed and turned in at or before the workshop by arrangement. Details for matting, framing, and delivery will be made available shortly, as will details for the workshop. This will be your opportunity to receive free mats for all photos accepted into the exhibit, as well as purchase gallery frames at a discounted price.

 

Here are the steps to enter the exhibit:

 

1.  RSVP "Yes" and pay a non-refundable entry fee of $20.00;

2.  Submit up to 2 digital photos in .jpeg format by email to [masked].  The subject line of the email should say, DDPM ANNUAL PHOTO EXHIBIT-IT'S ALL ABOUT ATLANTA.  In the email please list the following information:

a.  Your full name

b.  Your name as listed on the Meetup website, if different from above

c.  Your contact phone number

d.  Your contact email address

3.  The filename on each digital submission should be: Member Name followed by the Caption of the Photo.  Example:  Ronald_Roberts Photo_Caption.jpeg. Please note that an underscore should be used between your first and last name (no space).  Following your name, insert a space.  Following the space, insert the Caption for your photo.  All words in the caption should be connected by an underscore (no spaces).

 

Entries will not be considered "accepted" until all three of the above steps have been completed.  You will receive an email once your photos have been accepted.  Acceptance does not mean that you have been chosen to exhibit, only that you have complied with the submission process.

 

Questions concerning the Call for Entries may be emailed to: [masked].

    It's really frustrating that this group has a policy that you can't participate in exhibitions unless you joined the group before Jan 1st. I joined after the beginning of the year and therefore have to wait until 2004 in order to submit entries. No other group has this kind of restriction.

      Steven, we may open it up to newer members the end of the week. We'll have to see how the entries come in between now and then.

    Hi Ron,

    Are there any specs yet on the dimensions and size of the photos submitted? Thanks!

      Mo, you have your email blocked so you aren't receiving the emails I send out. You really ought to unblock it. I've sent the dimensions out twice. The largest photo you can submit will be 96 square inches. That allows for an 8X10 or a 8X12. Of course, first you must submit your entries digitally according to the instructions above.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
