Mapping: borders, bodies, memories
There are many ways to capture the interconnection between places, both real and imagined. Mapping is a call for photographic work that illustrates the spatial relationships between object and viewer, between here and there, or between now and past events. How can you map boundaries or the association between coordinates in your images?
Photographers may submit up to 6 entries, with a fee of $25 for 3 images and $5 for each additional image. Digital files should be saved as JPEGs and sized at 72 dpi and 800 pixels for the longest edge. Please title all files with first name and last initial of the artist, plus the image number, (e.g. JohnD1.jpg or JaneD1.jpg.) All levels of photographers are eligible to submit and international entries will be accepted. No video or time-based work will be accepted. Entrants will be informed of the juror’s decisions by the end of August.
Accepted work must arrive with sufficient return postage or be dropped off in person. If sufficient return postage is not included, or if the work is left beyond the pickup date after the exhibition closes, neither David Weinberg Photography nor Filter Photo will be responsible. David Weinberg Photography will receive a 50% commission on all works sold during the show.
