The Maryland Photography Alliance (MPA) just announced its third digital-photography contest, and we hope you will participate. There is no charge to enter, and there are $700 in prizes through the sponsor Nations Photo Lab, and there are other valuable prizes through our new sponsors, Les Picker Fine Art Photography and Moab by Legion Paper. Photographers of the top images will be invited to display and sell their images at a November gallery show at Bohrer Park in Gaithersburg, MD, from November 1, 2019 until January 21, 2020. The reception date is, tentatively, November 10, 2019.
4 Image Categories to Pick From:
ABSTRACT. A found abstract is a photograph of natural shapes, colors, or textures that has no obvious subject and is isolated to render the subject unrecognizable.
BLACK & WHITE. Photographs that capture the purest form of light with shades of gray and pure black.
MARYLAND ARCHITECTURE. Exterior or interior photographs of physical structures, which must be identified on the label as found, anywhere, in Maryland.
STILL LIFE. Photographs, full-sized or macro images, of inanimate subjects–typically a small group or a solitary item. A still life can be simple or complex, sharp or soft in focus, high-key or low-key in lighting.
The submission website is new, and here are a few tips:
- You must review the rules and copyright language and check the box indicating that you have read it before entering information.
- You can enter ONLY two 2 images
- You can enter your 2 images in different categories, or you can enter both images in the same category
- On the Gallery Show Entry Form page, remember to use the Camera Club Affiliation box and choose “Arundel Camera Club (ACC)” because we want the club to show its support for this contest.
The Arundel Camera Club (ACC) is a member of the Maryland Photography Alliance, a group of 18 clubs working to enhance our enjoyment of photography.
Please consider entering the contest. ACC has many great photographers, and this contest is a chance for all of us to win prizes, get recognition, and showcase our work.
The submission deadline is Saturday, August 24, 2019.
