Thru the Lens Photography Show celebrates how we all see the world filtered through a camera lens. Whether you are a professional, an amateur, an enthusiast, or just an occasional weekend photographer, we know you have a fantastic photo in your collection that we all want to see. The Joe invites photographers of all skill levels who celebrate what they see through a camera lens for jury consideration for the Thru the Lens Photography Show.
There are three categories under which work may be submitted:
Magical Places – Photography that captures the beauty, mystery and excitement of special places around the world either man-made or natural. What makes a place magical? It may be its location or natural beauty; it may be its cultural or historical importance. It could be how the light or the weather transforms something ordinary into something that creates awe and wonder. (Landscapes would fall in this category.)
Nature – This category showcases the beauty of our natural world, focusing on animal and plant life. Capture that image from an unusual angle or pose that shows the animal or plant in a different perspective.
Creative (Altered Reality) – Let your creative juices flow! These images on any topic have been altered beyond basic Photoshop corrections (cropping the image, exposure adjustment, color correction, sharpening, etc.). They may include multiple images, digital manipulations, alternative processes, mixed media, or elements of one or more processes.
Awards shall be presented during the Opening Reception. The following prizes will be awarded:
Best of Show: $150
Best of category: $75 each
Photographers’ Choice: $75 (Each accepted photographer will receive a ballot to vote for Photographers’ Choice.)
Second and Third Place in each category
2 Honorable Mentions in each category.
Entry fee $35 for Members, $50 for Non-Members, up to 4 pieces may be entered.
