Call for art: Outdated – Polaroid Film Show

Open call for submissions

Outdated – Polaroid Film Show
August 15th
Country Club Gallery, Chicago IL

Now seeking original Polaroid film images for upcoming gallery show in Chicago.

Polaroid Corporation has announced that it is discontinuing production of all instant films. To celebrate the wonder of Polaroid film and bid it farewell, we are asking for submissions for a Polaroid-only show set to take place on August 15th in Chicago, Illinois.

The goal is to have a show full of a wide variety of images showing the versatility of this disappearing medium. Therefore the theme is open. Help us show the wide range of subjects captured on Polaroid brand instant film.

To include your photographs in the show, please send:
Up to six of your best Polaroid images, a self-addressed return envelope for all unsold photographs, a flat entry fee of $10 – click here for payment information *now accepting Paypal* Artists receive 70% of all sales.

It is important that all photographs are labeled on the back with the following information:
Your name, Your address, Your email address, Sale price (if not for sale, please indicate such). We will be handling the cost of promotion and opening night refreshments.

Send all of the above to:
2136 W Division St #135
Chicago IL 60622

All photographs and payments must be received no later than JULY 25th. However, the earlier we get your images the better to help us promote the show properly.
Feel free to contact us with any questions or comments:

By submitting your images you acknowledge that you own all rights to them. You also agree to allow us to use your photographs to promote the show. If you would rather we didn’t use your images either on online or in print, please let us know.

While all submitted photographs will be included in the show, we do reserve the right to use our discretion in what is shown. This shouldn’t be an issue as long as you use Polaroid instant film and aren’t doing anything illegal. And you aren’t. Right?

This site and art show are in no way connected with Polaroid Corporation.
