Luna Press seeks submissions for New Orleans Photography Book

LUNA PRESS has announced an exciting publication opportunity for New Orleans photographers:

Luna Press is working on a new book project to be released in December 2013, during PhotoNOLA.
New Orleans photographers are invited to submit work for consideration. Image selection will be juried by Eric Bookhardt, writer, art critic and photographer. There is no submission fee.

From Luna Press:
“The book is based on the desire to showcase the multiplicity of excellent quality photography works and styles being produced in New Orleans. We believe that New Orleans is going through a serious renaissance in photography and want to pay tribute to it while providing something for PhotoNOLA visitors to take home.”


Luna Press is dedicated to the publishing of illustrated books — based on Baudelaire’s idea that there are “correspondences” between the arts and that the best and most natural appreciation of a work of art may be a response to it in another.

Submission guidelines:
Photograph submissions should represent work created post-Katrina.
Images do not have to be New Orleans subject matter.
Submitting photographers should live and work in New Orleans or its environs.

Submission details:
Submissions are due by April 15th.
Please submit 5 images.
Images should be in jpeg format, 7″ long dimension @ 300dpi. (Please note that the final images selected will be requested as a CMYK, 12″ long dimension “tiff” files for reproduction.)

Submit images by mailing or dropping off a disc or flash drive to:
Luna Press
c/o Jenny Bagert
838 N. Rendon St.
New Orleans, LA 70119
Please write your first and last name on the disc or drive.

The final selection of work/artists to be included in the publication will be announced by Luna Press by May 25th.

Copies of the book will be for sale to the public.
All photographers included in the book will receive a complimentary copy.
The book is being funded by Luna Press and is a labor of love. Any profits generated will be donated to the New Orleans Photo Alliance.
