Deadline March 5th: Palm Springs Photo Festival “No-Fee Slide Show Contest”

Palm Springs Photo Festival
Call for Entries: No-Fee Slide Show Contest
Deadline: Monday, March 5, 2012

“Each evening of the festival we present the work of 4 finalists. Your work could be seen by the participants and attendees of the PSPF on the large screen in the Annenberg Theater of the Palm Springs Art Museum.

Prizes
Our four finalists will receive a Retrospective 10 shoulder bag from Think Tank Photo as well as other prizes.

The Grand Prize winner will receive: a Special gift from Canon, an Airport Security rolling camera bag from Think Tank Photo, a $300 gift certificate from Samy’s Camera, a surprise from Western Digital and more!

Guidelines
You can send as many slide shows as you like.

  • There is no entry fee required.
  • Sent in Mac readable format with each image saved in a separate folder as well as incorporated into your show. The slide shows you send will be used by us as a guide – also distributed to the judges, so they needn’t be perfect nor large – not more than 50 megs please.
  • Quicktime movies and Keynote presentations are accepted.
    OR simply send jpgs in a folder with your music or audio track selection; if your work is selected, PSPF put it together provided the images are numbered in the order you’d like them projected.
  • Slide shows cannot be longer than three minutes in duration and should have music. If you don’t have music, PSPF will try to select a song for you. (If your slide show is selected you will need to obtain synchronization rights from the record label.  Or you can use royalty free music.)
  • If sending a complete slide show, include your music or audio track file in a separate folder on your disk or in your upload.

  • Send a brief text about your submission.
  • Include your name, address, email address and telephone number with your submission.
  • Avoid the “Ken Burns effect.” It does your work a disservice in the context of an audience of photographers – it’s fine for editorializing your work – for other purposes, but for a slide show for photographers it’s distracting. Thank you.

Submit via mail. Work sent by mail and not selected for our program will be returned after April 15, 2012, provided a self-addressed, stamped envelope is included in the submission. All other materials including digital submissions will be destroyed. Send entries to:

Deadline March 28th: Slideluck Potshow Phoenix

Slideluck Potshow is coming to Phoenix for the first time!!

Deadline for Submissions: MARCH 28, 2011 at MIDNIGHT

Submission Fee: $10

Submission Guidelines
Presentations are a maximum of 5 minutes each, but most are much shorter, and we recommend between 15-40 images. We accept work in digital format only. We encourage all types of media that can be presented within this framework, be it painting, sculpture, or installation art. However, they must be comprised mainly of still images – no film or video will be considered, although multimedia pieces using video as punctuation can be submitted. When presenting photographs, there are many ways to go about it. One should not be afraid of making thoughtful observations, creating narratives, combining live music, speaking, or even performing with images. We want to see good work, but it need not be safe. Show us work in progress, outtakes from a job or if that makes you uneasy, show us your absolute finest work, because we like that, too.

Because of the overwhelming number of submissions we receive, we now curate the slideshows to keep it at a maximum of 90 minutes. We will mainly be judging the submissions on range and diversity of subject matter. Our intent is to be inclusive and to provide as many people the possibility for expression as possible, and if we are unable to include your work for the show you originally submitted, we will always keep your work in mind for future shows. That being said, try to be cognizant of your audience and please exercise discipline in your editing process!

There is no theme for submissions. Having said that, you may be inspired by past Slideluck themes in other cities: i.e., Patterns, Family, Change, Mistakes, Energy, Grace, Nourishment, Anticipation.

Please go to the Phoenix Slideluck Potshow website for image specifications, to make your payment, and how to submit your entry.

The event will take place on April 30, 2011 at The Icehouse, 429 Jackson St in Phoenix, Arizona, 7 to 11 pm.  Click here for details.
