3 AmeriCorps VISTA Positions at Critical Exposure
Critical Exposure teaches youth how to use visual storytelling to document issues they face and how to run campaigns to make change in their schools and communities. Through partnerships with schools and community-based organizations, we’re building a new generation of civic leaders who have:
  • The tools to express themselves;
  • The creativity to imagine new solutions to old problems;
  • The belief that youth have the right and ability to fight for those solutions;
  • The skills to hold communities and public officials accountable.

Program Team (2 positions)

ABOUT THE POSITION
Critical Exposure is hiring two (2) AmeriCorps VISTAs to join our program team.

The VISTAs will increase the organization's capacity to better serve youth as program participants and to expand our reach to new schools and new students.
Our Program staff work to develop young people's capacities to advocate for themselves. We believe, in order for long-term, structural change to take place, that those impacted most directly by an issue must be the ones who lead the fight for solutions. This is not a position providing social services to youth, and this is not a position advocating on behalf of youth. Applicants should understand the difference between providing service and supporting youth as leaders.

  • Coordinate partner summit to bring together school-based administrators working to support Critical Exposure programs around the city.
  • Facilitate creation of new evaluation materials in consultation with pro bono consultants from Deloitte.

  • The power of youth/photography/art to serve as an effective advocacy tool and to compel decision-makers to take action.
  • The need to make public schools and communities more accountable to youth.
  • Combating internalized, interpersonal, and institutionalized forms of oppression.

photolucida



Priya Kambli, 2008 Book Award

Entry Details

Registration for Critical Mass 2014 is now open.
Registration will close on July 16th at noon PST.

What Is Critical Mass?

The aim of Critical Mass, and all Photolucida programming, is to provide participants with career-building opportunities and to promote the best emerging and mid-career artists working today.
Critical Mass is a program about exposure and community. The idea is simple—photographers (from anywhere) submit a 10-image portfolio. This work is then pre-screened by a committee of approximately 25 jurors. From those votes, 200 finalists are determined. The 200 finalists then pay an additional submission fee and their work goes on to a jury of over 200 of the world’s best photography professionals who have agreed to view and vote on the finalists’ work. See the list of jurors!

Submission Details

May 5th – 31st early-bird price
$65 ($80 for international submissions)
May 31st – July 16th
$75 ($90 for international submissions)
Finalists’ Round
Photographers selected for the finalists round pay an additional $200. Their work is then sent on to the full panel of 200 jurors.
To enter, download the entry guidelines to learn how to prepare your submission. Then, visit the Critical Mass registration page to submit your work.

Awards

Although the primary intent of Critical Mass is exposure (which is a benefit to all who enter), we are pleased to also offer awards each year. The awards for Critical Mass 2014 are:
Monograph Award – One photographer will be chosen for Photolucida’s prestigious monograph award. A hardbound book of their work will be published, distributed internationally, and given to all jurors and entrants in this year’s Critical Mass.
Artist Residency Award – One photographer will be chosen for a four-week residency in 2015 at the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation’s Captiva Island (Florida) estate.
Solo Show Award – One photographer will be chosen for an exhibition at Blue Sky Gallery in Portland during Portland Photo Month in April, 2015. The exhibition will be one of the highlights of Photolucida’s biennial Portfolio Reviews event.
Also:
The Critical Mass Top 50 Exhibition – Rebecca Senf, Curator at the Center for Creative Photography, will curate the Top 50 exhibition, a group show of photographers selected for the Top 50. The show will be a main exhibit at GuatePhoto 2015 in Guatelmala City. The Top 50 photographers’ portfolios will be archived on Photolucida’s website for years to come.
Art Photo Index Listing - All photographers selected for Critical Mass’ Top 50 will receive inclusion in Photo-Eye’s invitation-only Art Photo Index, a global, searchable database of vetted art and documentary photographers and their work.

WHAT TO EXPECT

  • All entrants will receive a monograph of the book award winner’s work (published in 2015).
  • All entrants will have their work seen and voted on by the pre-screening committee.
  • All entrants will be able to view all of the submitted work (after Critical Mass closes).
  • The top 200 finalists will have their work seen and voted on by over 200 esteemed photography jurors. Jurors have the option of leaving comments for finalists.

International Scholarships

Each year, Photolucida awards five scholarships to photographers who live and work outside the US. In previous years, scholarships have been given to photographers from Poland, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, Georgia, Guatemala, and Japan. This year, Photolucida is offering scholarships to pre-selected photographers from Finland.

200 Jurors!

Our Critical Mass jurors are an international group of industry professionals representing a wide variety of photographic interests. We make a great effort to invite a wide range of professionals in the field (gallery owners, agency art buyers, curators, publishers, editors, new media producers, etc.). The quality of our juror list is a testament to the excellence of Critical Mass programming, now in its eleventh year. In addition to seeing the work during the online voting process, jurors will also have access to a database of the finalists’ work. Special Note: Critical Mass jurors are not allowed to submit their own work to Critical Mass.

Mobil Magic Contest

 
Submissions to Mobile Magic IX run from May 1st until midnight on May 31st.

       We would like to thank you for your past participation in Mobile Magic, a unique call for submissions. We hope you enjoyed receiving your print(s) and perhaps were selected in the top twenty five entries. If you were a submitter to May's Mobile Magic VIII, your print(s) will be mailed  next week. If you were selected into the show, your prints will be mailed in a few weeks from now, after the show comes down off the gallery walls.

     This Month we are pleased to have Terri Warpinski, Professor of Art at the University of Oregon, along with the entire graduating class of the Advanced Photography Practice class at the University of Oregon, as Jurors for Mobile Magic IX.
   
    LightBox will donate 20% of the Mobile Magic IX submission fees to the Advanced Photo Practice graduating class at the University of Oregon.

"The magic in mobile phone photography, for me, is the ease with which we are able to carry cameras around with us 24/7. The number of photographs being generated daily is mind-boggling. According to the webiste 1000memories, “Every 2 minutes today we snap as many photos as the whole of humanity took in the 1800s.” The quantum leap in that volume occurred with the emergence of the cell phone camera which was first released in 2000. The tragedy in that volume is that so many images are never seen. Mobile Magic gives us the opportunity to pause, reflect on, and acknowledge the significance of the photographs being created through this ubiquitous tool."
~ Terri Warpinski

 Please check out Terri’s website and the Mobile Magic Call page.

    Mobile phone images are part of everyday life. We nearly all have smart phones allowing us to create images with the immediacy of reaching into our pocket, using the processing tools of the myriad of apps. In our Mobile Magic Exhibits we wish to bring these uniquely creative images off of our phones and into the beauty of a fine photographic print.
     Mobile Magic is a monthly exhibit for display in the gallery and online, opening during our regular Second Saturday monthly openings. Each month we display archival pigment prints of the top 25 juried images, selected by a renown juror from the photographic community. LightBox prints every submission as a 100% archival rag pigment print and mail them to the photographer.
     These monthly exhibits give recognition to the unique qualities of mobile photography and also put a fine art print in everyones hands. There is a new exhibit every month, open to all photographers from around the world, and juried by the finest in the photographic art community today!
     Mobile Magic exhibits are an mportant source of support for LightBox Photographic Gallery to help us continue our mission to promote creative and alternative photography on the North Coast of Oregon. We would like to invite you to submit again this month and to also help us by sharing this iopportunity with others you feel may be interested.

MA Final Project exhibition - Orestis Kourakis

MA Final Project exhibition - Orestis Kourakis
Title: The Fleeting Acquaintance
Place: SCAD Student Center
Date: Friday, May 23rd
Time: 7-10pm
Looking at a portrait is a dynamic relationship rather than a passive reception. Can a photograph ever be seen free of personal associations, without allowing preconceived images and experiences to affect its impact? This interactive installation uses photography and video to explore identity. The work challenges conventional ways of perception and allows the viewers to transform the artwork and draw their personal conclusions.

Fashion Event

   



Friday, May 16, 2 p.m.
ALT+PAT: Behind the lens
Arnold Hall auditorium






Don’t miss iconic model Pat Cleveland in an exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime performance presented in conjunction with SCAD Fashion 2014. Creative director AndrĂ© Leon Talley will guide Cleveland in a live fashion photo shoot for photographer Colin Gray (B.F.A., photography, 2004). A true living legend, Cleveland is known around the world for her movements, her infectious personality and the life she gives to clothing.

A superstar of the 1970s, Cleveland is credited with revolutionizing the image of African-American models and was hailed as a muse to many of the decade's most influential designers, including 2014 AndrĂ© Leon Talley Lifetime Achievement Award honoree Stephen Burrows. Cleveland tremendously influenced Burrows’ work throughout the decade, and she would go on to model for him and other legendary American designers in the landmark Franco-American fashion faceoff at Versailles in 1973. She was one of 12 African-American models used by the American designers in the show, and today, she and Burrows are credited with helping break fashion’s color barriers.

This event is free and open to all SCAD students and staff with a valid ID.

Presented by the School of Foundation Studies
Arnold Hall Auditorium, 2pm Friday, May 9
