Deadline for Seattle center’s annual competition is May 18

Seattle’s Photo Center NW is seeking submissions for “Equivalents,” its 17th annual photo competition and exhibit. The deadline for entry for the open-themed, juried competition is Friday, May 18.

Serving as juror for this year’s exhibit is W.M. Hunt, a New York-based photography collector, curator and consultant. He is the author of “The Unseen Eye: Photographs from the Unconscious,” a work published in the United States by Aperture in 2011.

Selected entries will be exhibited at the Center’s gallery in Seattle beginning August 3 and running through September 18. Winners will receive cash awards of $1,000 for first prize, $500 for second and $250 for third. Each winner will also receive a $75 gift certificate for purchases from the Blurb self-publishing service.

Submission details are listed at the Photo Center NW website.
