Deadline Extended – Call for Submission: Jazz Fest Photography Exhibition 2008

Photographers are invited to submit works for the Jazz Fest Photography Exhibition presented in the Grandstand. This year, we are looking for images that illustrate the diversity of New Orleans’ cultures, as families, neighborhoods and communities come together to celebrate their cherished traditions.

A second exhibit, Celebrate! Louisiana Cooking will be displayed in the Food Heritage Stage area, so be sure to include photographs illustrating the important role that food plays in our cultures.

You may submit up to six images. These may be in the form of actual photographs or CD and delivered on Friday, March 28 between 10 am & 5 pm to the Foundation office at 1205 N. Rampart St., corner of Gov. Nicholls.

Those who prefer to submit electronically may send by Friday, March 28 an email including name, address and phone number to percentforart@yahoo.com and up to 6 images in low resolution jpg files maximum 72 dpi, approximate size: 5”x7”. Photographers will be notified by Monday April 7.
