Competitions I’m With The Band: A Photography Exhibition
NOTE: This opp listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!
International Deadline: February 11, 2018 – 1650 Gallery is calling for entries for its upcoming I’m With The Band group photography exhibition. Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted photos for display beginning February 24.
A large part of the musical life is lived on stage; concert photos can capture the power and the glory of musical expression. But there is another side too: the backstage, offstage side of the musician. On the bus, car or train on the way to the gig. Navigating nightclubs, bars and concert halls. At rehearsals and studio sessions. Writing and alone time. Relaxing with friends, working the crowd or posing for the ever-present band photo. All these elements combine to create the musician’s life, whether pro, semi-pro or amateur.
And this month at 1650 we want to see it all: Street buskers, one-man bands, classical quartets, rock gods, jazz legends, open-mic hopefuls, piano prodigies, church choirs, fat ladies singing and of course the roadies, fans and groupies, big time or small potatoes! So if you’re ready to take YOUR act on the proverbial road then put on your blue suede shoes and point your camera toward anything that squeaks, honks, moans, rattles and rolls or blows, and show us the saucy, sultry and sometimes seamy world of music. Join with us at 1650 this month as we push through the crowd, get our hands stamped and our drink tickets and proudly say to the guy at the door: I’m With The Band.
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.
