Competition fees to benefit flooded Vermont museum

Something NOPA members should be able to relate to, especially when making preparations for Tropical Storm Lee for the Labor Day weekend:

The PhotoPlace Gallery of Middlebury, VT, which survived Hurricane Irene, is planning to use a portion of proceeds from submissions to an upcoming juried photo competition to help a fellow art institution,the Main Street Museum of White River Junction VT. The museum, described by PhotoPlace as an alternative museum of material culture, was inundated with six feet of water from Irene-related flooding. The water destroyed museum storage areas, as well as supplies and its parking lot.

The deadline for the competition “Reflections in Photography,” is Monday, Sept. 19. Images are sought that involve reflection–not the consideration or meditative type, but the sort resulting from light that bounces off reflective surfaces.

The entry fee is $25 for the first five submission, with $6 for each additional image submitted.

Other PhotoPlace photography competitions, including ones focusing on surrealist and travel photography, have deadline of October 17 and November 14, respectively. For more information, please see the gallery’s website.
