Otsego 2000 is holding a Poster Image Contest for the seventh annual Glimmerglass Film Days, which will be held November 7-11 in Cooperstown, NY.
Film Days theme: Adaptations
How do we respond in the face of unavoidable change? Even as society reacts to technological progress, climate change, and fractious politics, we as individuals must adapt to changes in our everyday lives. Heraclitus uttered “the only constant in life is change” some 2500 years ago. The swift pace of change in today’s world demands tenacity, creativity, and connection. This year’s films will explore how nature, society, and individuals persevere, persist, and plow ahead.
The competition is open to professional and fine arts photographers. Submissions are limited to three (3) per photographer. An image taken in or near Otsego County, New York, is preferred, but not required. All photographs must be approximately 8×10 and 300 dpi for jurying purposes, and must be submitted electronically (.jpg, .png, .pdf) by midnight, April 9, 2019.
The photograph that best conveys the 2019 theme “Adaptations” will be featured in Film Days materials, including the poster, program, and website. The winning photographer will receive a cash prize of $250, and special recognition in the program.
