Call For Entries

Open Call for Entries for All Photographers; Black & White Photography

“Black and white are the colors of photography. To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.” - Robert Frank

What does "black and white" mean to contemporary photographers in the digital age? When Robert Frank made this observation, black-and-white film and silver prints were photography's most commonly used materials. Nearly a half century later they are approaching "alternative media" status. Or are they? Are the implications and meanings of black and white still central to photography's unique nature as a visual medium?

Submissions to this juried exhibition are limited only by your imagination and your photographic eye. Portraits, fashion, editorial, landscapes, documentary, conceptual - all of these genres, and others not named, are open for consideration.

Prints should take whatever form they need to in order to represent the continuum of gray tones that comprise your photographs. Whether the initial recording was made on film or pixels is immaterial. However, in the final assessment, prints will be judged on their merits. Qualities of form, content, and relation to traditions of black-and-white printing and visualization will be sought in the pool of submissions.

Juror: George Slade, Principal at re:photographica

Entry Fee: $35 up to 5 images; $10 each additional (no limit on number that may be submitted)

Prizes: $300 for 1st; $200 for 2nd; $100 for 3rd

Entries Due: July 23, 2010

Notice of Acceptance: August 2, 2010

Exhibition Dates: September 10 - October 25, 2010

Reception: September 10, 2010
