Photography Center North West
It was a pleasure seeing Ann Pallesen at Photolucida last week. Ann is the Gallery Director of the Photography Center NW in Seattle and she has successfully installed over 150 exhibitions at PCNW over the last 15 years. Her enthusiasm and energies for all things photography (she is a successful photographer herself!) are evident in PSNW’s ever expanding programing. PCNW has two upcoming opportunities for photographers that are very much worth considering. In fact, one of my first group exhibitions was at PCNW when Keith Carter was a juror. Attending his lecture and the opening was not only memorable, but made me feel like I was part of a photography community.
First, PCNW is hosting their 16TH Annual Photo Competition Exhibition
JUROR: Karen Irvine, Curator, Museum of Contemporary Photography
THEME: Anything related to Land or Water
DEADLINE: May 14, 2011
CASH AWARDS: $1000, $500, $250
The Photo Center 16th Annual Photo Competition Exhibition will be chosen by Karen Irvine, Curator of Museum of Contemporary Photography, Columbia College Chicago. This annual juried exhibition draws entries from across the country and around the world, and remains among the most popular shows in Photo Center ’s annual schedule. Selected entries will be exhibited at Photo Center in Seattle from August 5th – September 15th, 2011. First, second, and third prize winners will take home $1000, $500, and $250 as well as $75 Gift Certificates of Blurb Scrip for each winner. The competition is open to all photographers internationally & all photographic processes. The theme is focused on images related to land or water, open to interpretation. All entries must be received by Saturday, May 14th, 2011.
The second opportunity is the LONG SHOT 2011 photo-marathon on JUNE 17TH-18TH!
LONG SHOT is an event that celebrates photography, creativity, and our greater community, while raising funds for education and outreach programs at Photo Center NW. It is a fun, marathon fundraising event where photographers hit the streets to capture a theme, community, or subject of their choice. Just a few dollars per hour can help us bring new tools to the Photo Center, keep our doors open 7 days a week all year, and support public programs, outreach, and exhibitions. The event is open to everyone, using any camera, anywhere. At least one image from each participant will be featured in the LONG SHOT exhibition at Photo Center NW on July 23, 2011.
