Competitions Underneath It All: The Underwear Show
NOTE: This opp listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!
International Deadline: November 18, 2018 – Ever wonder why most photos are so… boring? Well, it’s probably because the people in the photo are fully clothed. It’s pretty much an accepted fact that people who spend a lot of time wearing their underwear loud and proud are happier, make more money, and are far more popular than the rest of us. Ask the Victoria’s Secret models or those Calvin Klein dudes with the tidy-whiteys. Heck even the guys and gals in the Sears catalog are having more fun than all of us. It’s a fact, Jack! Good things happen when the outerwear goes away and the underwear is here to stay! And we all know cameras and underwear go together like peas and carrots. So grab your trusty Nikon and let’s see your Uncle Sal watching the Mets in his boxers. Or your bookie ‘Fast Eddie’ in his sleeveless tee and Calvin Klein’s. Or Sylvia from the diner in her favorite bra.
Whatever you do, make it count and make it so you like it so we can all be proud of you. Because art matters. Because you need to push your boundaries. Because this time at 1650 Gallery, the clothes come off and the guard comes down to reveal the art that lies just beneath as we present ‘Underneath It All: The Underwear Show’.
Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted photos to be included in the ‘Underneath It All‘ group photography exhibition at 1650 Gallery in Los Angeles.
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.
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.
