Entry deadline for NOPA’s free ‘Members Only Exhibit’ is May 14

NOPA is seeking entrants for its first annual Members Only Exhibit, an open-themed competition for all dues-paying members, with no restrictions or guidelines on subject matter, genre or style. Thirty-five photographs will be selected for the June 2012 show by a committee of Alliance board members and one general member.

The deadline for entry–which, in this case, is free of charge–is Monday, May 14.

The exhibit will open on Saturday, June 9 at the NOPA Gallery, located at 1111 St. Mary St. in the Crescent City’s Lower Garden District.

Current members may submit up to five photos for consideration. Submitted work should be sized at approximately ten inches on the long side, and at 72 pixels-per-inch resolution. All works should be named as follows: Last name, first name, title, size, sequence number (example: Doe_John_Title_16x20_#1).

Photographers with work selected for the exhibit will be notified on Friday, May 18. Delivery of selected work will be required by Tuesday, June 5.

All selected work must be submitted in ready-to-hang, professional fashion. Work that is shoddily framed, or arrives with no way to hang it, will ultimately not be exhibited. The same will go for work that does not substantially match what is submitted.

Entries should be sent to programming@neworleansphotoalliance.org, with “MEMBERS EXHIBIT” in the subject line. You may send images via separate e-mails, if necessary, by listing the entries in “x/x,” fashion–as in 1/3, 2/3, 3/3, etc., after the subject heading.
