Abbie Culbertson, Caroline Coulton, and all the other good folks at the Pastoral Counseling Centers of Tennessee are inviting submissions of digital images for their 3rd annual InSight Photography Show & Auction Photo Contest.
This project is the major fundraiser for the PCCT, a worthy group of folks if there ever was one.
You can learn more about the PCCT, and about this competition, if you go here:
The theme of this year's show is Southern Exposure.
The contest is open to all photographers who reside in one of the following US states: Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Kentucky, or Virginia.
Work may be submitted starting July 1st, 2015 through August 2nd, 2015.
The Panel of Judges -- which this year will include Jerry Atnip, an old friend of The Southern Photographer -- will select 24 finalists to exhibit their work at Nashville's Cumberland Gallery on September 12th, 2015 at the event “InSight Photography Show & Auction.”
All selected works will be placed in the event’s silent auction, and photographers will receive 20% of the final winning bids.
Award prizes, to be announced the evening of the event, include $300 for first place, $200 for second place, and $150 for third place winners.
Proceeds from the InSight show will go to the Pastoral Counseling Centers of Tennessee (PCCT) to support families, individuals, and couples in Middle Tennessee who are in need of affordable mental health counseling services.
You can find the Official Rules at pcctinc.org/insight. But the bottom line is, no entry fee for up to three (3) images. Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What a concept! A Juried Show with No Entry Fee, with sales opportunities, and prizes.
I'm definitely going to enter work, and I strongly encourage you to do so as well.
