Entry fee: $20
Prizes: participation in the online exhibition, Q&A with curator
Samesource says, “The digital age has many benefits. Digital gear has also made it much easier to be a lazy photographer. Think of this contest as the search for the product of ambition and effort. Sure, there’s a skill in spotting an interesting shot and capturing it on the street, but that’s not what this contest is about. No Happy Accidents is looking for shots that were painstakingly planned and executed. In addition to subject matter, set dressing, props, lighting, lens choice, shutter speed, depth of field, subject positioning, and composition all merit serious individual consideration. Show us works that started as an idea and took time and effort to bring to fruition. Show us great photography that you did not just luck upon or capture as a result of being able to take unlimited exposures.”
$20 for 3 images. ALL entrants work is shown on their own page with their artist statement, website info, bio and parts of their CV. Early entries are featured on L.A. Photo Curator’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
First Place winner receives Q&A with curator. Curator reviews first place winner. One or more past curators may contribute reviews as well. 10% of artist fees goes to the first place winner’s charity. The first place image shows on our splash page for a month.
