We expect to display approximately six photographs in the Harley Davidson Memorial Hall at the Lancaster Fair Grounds during the one day Southern California Photography Conference 2012 on June 16th, 2012. The photographs to be displayed will be selected by a LPA Panel, based upon digital images submitted via the LPA Website, Competition Entry Section. Deadline for entry will be at Midnight on Friday, June 8th, 2012.
UPDATED GUIDELINES: 16 by 20 inch (or larger) prints are recommended, mounted and matted, under glass, preferably in simple black frames. Minimum frame size 20 by 24 (or 480 sq inches), but recommend 22 by 28 inches or larger (616 sq inches or larger). The images may be in Color of Black and White. If printed on Artists Canvas they don’t need to be under glass, but should be framed as a painting for gallery display. (NOTE: If your image is selected by panel of judges to be in the SCPC Gallery, you will need to frame/matte/mount accordingly. Larger prints are strongly encouraged as they are representative of what one would see in a “gallery” show).
Each member may submit only one image. Each photographer is required to be a current member of the Lancaster Photography Association.
Sales: Will be allowed. All sales are a transaction between the photographer and a customer.
Fees: No fees will be charged for entry.
Commission: 20% of sale price to LPA as a donation to a tax deductible non-profit organization.
Take-In: Deliver to the Harley Davidson Hall: TBD
Pick-Up: At the close of the show at 5:30 to 6:00 PM on 16 June.
Awards: The public is invited to participate in the balloting for Best of Show, Second, and Third place. Places are to be determined by the number of votes cast in the secret ballot. Each person may cast only one ballot for the picture of their choice. Awards will be announced at the end of the show.
Categories: CREATIVE, LAND/SEA SCAPE, PORTRAIT, NATURE, TRAVEL, HUMAN INTEREST, & OTHER.
The photographer is encouraged to name the picture based upon the subject, story, emotional connection, event, or description. There are no restrictions on entering pictures that have been entered in any other contest or show. The photographers name, title, and sale price (or NFS) will be displayed on the picture. BIOs may be posted with the picture at the discretion of the Photographer.
We want to display your best work to a most discerning audience, in a unique event that will be remembered for many years. It’s our time to shine! Pleased note; it will be good experience for a LPA show at The Museum Of Art and History (MOAH) later this year or next.
