15 Minutes of FAME !
This an extremely popular program that the great folks at the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts started several years ago, but don't seem to offer any more. FCCP will now offer 15 Minutes of FAME ! for its members. Now, every other month Members will have the opportunity to present their work to the group and receive encouragement, criticism and enlightenment.
The format is pretty simple. We want to hear and see your latest work. Maybe it for a gallery show you're putting together. Perhaps, you're working on a project, maybe a travel book, a calendar, or just a selection of your best work and you really need want the groups input on your photographic achievements. This is the forum for you and your work.
You'll have about 15 minutes to display your work in print form (the bigger the better) or projection onto the large screen. You can say whatever you like, talk about equipment, locations, composition, subjects, whatever you think is appropriate . After all, it's your 15 minutes of FAME ! Be prepared to answer questions from the audience too. Don't expect a critique, we do those separately.
After everyone has had a chance to present (no more than 6 per evening), the audience will have a chance to vote for their favorite artist of the evening. This will be a popular vote and the winner's work will be featured in the FCCP Monthly Newsletter.
Any FCCP member is welcome to attend or present. Please RSVP so that we can better plan the evening. If you want to present, please answer the questions when you RSVP. We are limited to just 6 presenters, and the available slots are first come first served. If we have more than 6 members want to present, they'll be offered the opportunity to present the following event (15 Minutes of Fame ! is offered every other month, the last Sunday of the month).
You've got two moths to prepare, so get after and get you best work ready to show to the masses.
