CALL FOR PHOTOGRAPHS
The Somerset Photography Meetup Group has secured space for a juried group photo exhibit at the Adult Day Center of Somerset County in Bridgewater. The exhibit will open Feb. 10, 2014 and will hang through March 31. The application deadline is Dec. 20.
This show is for all levels of photographers to display their photos in a public exhibit that will kick off with an opening reception.
Photographers may submit up to three photos for possible inclusion in the show. A jury will select up to 40 for the show. Notices will be sent to everyone who submits on Dec. 23 letting you know whether your images were selected. You then have until Jan. 31 to have a print made, matted, framed and delivered to the Adult Day Center.
All prints should be at least 8”X10” and frames should be at least 16”X20” and no larger than 36” on the longest side. Frames can be metal or wood and must include a wire for hanging. Improperly framed photos will not be accepted. I can provide tips and suggestions on where to get photos framed or how to do it yourself. If you are unsure how to frame your photo, ask me before you get the print made.
The photographer’s name, hometown, photo title and selling price will be displayed adjacent to each photo. If the photo sells, you are responsible for collecting the money and the print will be available to the buyer at the end of the show. I (not the Adult Day Center) ask that you donate at least 20% of sales to the Center. Selling your photo is not required.
There is no theme for the show, but no nudes or inappropriate photos will be included.
The Adult Day Center of Somerset County is a non-profit agency that cares for adults during the day, benefiting both the elderly and their caregivers. They recently moved into a beautiful, new facility on East Main St. in Bridgewater next to the Somerset Patriots baseball stadium. They designed their hallways with art exhibits in mind so they can be viewed by clients and the public.
The utmost care will be taken with your photograph and frame, but the Adult Day Center of Somerset County nor the Somerset Photography Meetup Group are responsible for any damage to your photo or frame before, during or after the exhibit.
Jury fee is $25.00. A jury fee is an entry fee. $20.00 will go directly to the Adult Day Center (this fee is not something required or suggested by the Adult Day Center, it is my way to raise a little money for them). The remaining $5.00 will be used for the opening reception and meetup expenses. For each fee of $25, members may submit up to three photos. Membership in the meetup group is free. After submitting the jury fee, you will be given information directing you where to send your photo entry.
