If you live in the Champlain Valley (full or part time) and love making photos, make photos for a living, as a serious passion, or to fill your creative urges, we want to see your best shots.
Submit up to five images, online or by email and we will select and print at least one and display it during a three week exhibition complete with an Artists' Reception at Darkroom Gallery in Essex Junction VT.
For this exhibit, two members of our local photography group Art-in-Photography, Paul Dandurand and Timothy Gottshall, will join with well-known local art collector and eminent supporter of the arts Mark Waskow to select at least one of your images for display. Our previous Photo Slam saw the display of 130 images, and we hope to exceed that number this year.
There will be prizes for First, Second, and Third Place photos, as chosen by the jurors. There will also be a People's Choice prize for the photo that receives the most votes by attendees at the Artist's Reception - that's why it's called a SLAM! Additional door prizes will be provided by local merchants. And we'll have a closing reception on January 27 at which photographers can pick up their photos and chat with other entrants.
