Opportunity Description

International Deadline: August 14, 2016 – 1650 Gallery announces it’s upcoming international juried photography exhibition, ‘The Sea: Above and Below Photography Exhibition’.

All life comes from the sea, and sometimes in August in Southern California it seems like all life has returned to the sea, but no matter, because 1650 comes not to bury the sea, but to praise it! That’s right, this month we hit the oceans high and low as we tackle both the underwater and above water aspects of the mighty waters of the world. So whether you prefer to shoot sandy beaches at sunset or coral reefs below the surface, moonlit seascapes with crashing waves on rocks or schools of angelfish hurrying through the salty waters below; this month 1650 has got you covered, not in a rub sunscreen on your back kind of way, but rather with the sea of possibility as we go… Above and Below: The Sea!

Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted photos to be included in the The Sea: Above and Below Photography Exhibition’ photography exhibition at 1650 Gallery in Los Angeles.

Best In Show, 2nd Place and 3rd Place will be awarded and posted online after the show opening. Award winning photos will be featured on the show page and Best In Show winners will have a small portfolio of their work (up to 10 images) featured in our 1650 Spotlight gallery of photographic excellence.

All Awards winners will also be featured in our 1650 Gallery newsletter, which is broadcast via email to our mailing list. Getting the word out about artists we’re excited about helps you do more great work, helps us show more great work, and helps keep the often insular world of fine art photography more diverse and vibrant.

There is an entry fee of $35 for up to 5 images. Additional entries may be submitted for $5 each.

We offer free matting and framing for accepted photographs that fit our pre-cut mat sizes for the duration of the exhibition. We have a variety of frames and mats to choose from.

We will also print your photo for a nominal fee if you are accepted into the show and would prefer not to mail a print.

Selected photographs will be posted on the website within one week after the deadline, along with instructions for submitting work for exhibition. An email will also be sent out when the collection is posted.

Selected artists may choose to offer their work for sale. The gallery retains 50% of the sale price. There is a 9.25% California sales tax.

Photographs have the opportunity to be part of an online silent charity auction to benefit worthy causes. 1650 encourages all accepted artists to participate but it is not mandatory. We will provide additional info to accepted artists who fall into this category.
