Current Contest Theme and Judge
The current contest theme is “Light within” That will be judged by Steve Parsons. Steve graduated with his MFA in photography, and has taught many photography classes and workshops all around the world. Asked what he looks for when judging, he said that to him, concept and artist statement carry a lot of weight in his judging. Technical acumen matters, and print presentation is king. He said that he expects artists to make deliberate choices about medium, process and technique that support the overall image. He also indicated that final presentation size must be in support of the image and concept as well. He himself is a photographer, but loves paintings, sculpture and mixed media as well having worked with many other artists in his lifetime. He encourages artists to video record their artist statement and submit it along with their entry though it is not mandatory. Open house will be Monday December 2nd and the show will run through Monday December 23rdEnter now!
