The date listed for this event is the day entries will be accepted at the gallery (see other dates below).
I do need some volunteers to help with the intake since I have a scheduling conflict that day. Please mention in the comment section below if you can help.
Our 4th gallery show will hang for the month of March at Academy Frame on N. Academy in the Springs. This will be the first show at their new location!
The show will be limited to at total of 80 pieces (2 per participant) and the cost of entry is $20 per person. The money collected will be used for prizes for "best of show," "people's choice," as well as 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. It will also pay for food at the reception. Any extra will be applied to our Meetup fees.
Our judge is Todd Caudle, professional photographer and owner of Skyline Press. Find out more about Todd by visiting his website at www.skylinepress.com.
Best of Show - A 1-year subscription to Adobe's Creative Cloud Complete Suite (a $600 value)
People's Choice - A $200 Wacom graphics tablet
1st Place - $250
2nd Place - $125

Digitally manipulated photography is OK as are canvas wraps. There is no theme.
This event will appear on the calendars for all 3 of our chapters so all members get the opportunity to participate. Participants will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis and entry fees will be collected via PayPal. You will be responsible for dropping off your work at Academy Frame on the intake date.
All entries must be priced and ready to hang with wire on the back. Frames with sawtooth hangers will not be accepted. Members are also allowed to bring up to 10 bin pieces that are ready to sell. Bin pieces are mounted and matted prints without frames that are covered in cellophane or shrink wrap. Academy Frame takes a 30% commission on all sales, so price your items accordingly to cover the commission.
We realize that this will be the first time for many to display their work in public and will need help preparing their prints. If you have questions, please ask.
We have several resources available to help you to prepare your prints for this show:
MPIX is offering group members a 15% discount on print orders over $25 through March. Enter code CPLG14 at checkout.
If you print your own photos, inkjet papers are available through me at www.adventurecamphoto.com
If you need prints made, see John at the Portrait Lab. He gives CPLG members a discount.
Kim at Academy Frame also gives our members a discount on framing.
