Opportunity Description

International Deadline: March 11, 2018 – 1650 Gallery is calling for entries for its upcoming Together group photography exhibition. Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted photos for display beginning March 24.

In this troubled corner of the universe known as planet earth, there has always been good reason for all it’s creatures, great and small, to stick together. Whether gaggles of geese, schools of fish, a pack of dogs, an exaltation of larks or a gang of teenagers, there is safety in numbers. Folks like to get together to celebrate things: “The more the merrier!” is the battle cry. Teams, classes, squads, crews, tribes, bands, herds, gangs, quorums, committees and congresses – if it’s worth doing it seems to be better together than alone. Two heads are supposedly better than one, so is there any danger of too much togetherness? Only within the chemical reaction called love, where two is company and three’s a crowd; and we all know it’s no fun being a fifth wheel. Nevertheless, love remains the 500 pound gorilla of the togetherness scene; what it lacks in numbers it makes up for in sense of purpose – there’s a reason “love conquers all” became a quotable quote!

This month at 1650, we want to see YOUR version of togetherness – be it birds of a feather, lovers in the park, your gramma’s bridge club or cats and dogs living in sin – we want to see it all! So gang together with your best friend the camera and show us your take! Because this month at 1650 there is no right or wrong; there is only you and me, and Together we’ll make history!

Open to photographers worldwide of all skill levels.

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 $40 for up to 5 images.. Additional entries may be submitted for $5 each.

Visit us for complete details and easy online application.

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.

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.
