DORCHESTER CENTER FOR THE ARTS CALL FOR ARTISTS COMMUNITY PHOTOGRAPHY AND DIGITAL ARTS EXHIBIT & COMPETITION

The Dorchester Center for the Arts (DCA) is announcing a Call for Artists for their Annual Dorchester County Community Photography & Digital Arts Exhibit and Competition. This Photography Show is open to the public and offers three divisions: Youth, Amateur Adult, and Professional Adult. The show will run November 1-24.

The DCA Annual Photography Show is open to the public. The show is judged and each                                                photographer may enter up to three works. Please number your submissions in order of preference, in the unlikely event that we run out of space for hanging. Work must be original and never before shown at the Dorchester Center for the Arts.

All photographs must be either gallery wrapped or mounted/matted, framed, under glass or plexiglass, and properly wired, ready to hang. Digitally enhanced or altered photos and photo collages are acceptable. If you have done extensive computer manipulation, please make a note of that on the Registration and Entry Forms.

Judging is based on the following criteria: quality of photograph, originality, composition, and overall presentation. Cash awards will be presented at the Awards Ceremony on Saturday, November 10 in each of the three divisions: Youth Division (18 and under); Amateur Adult Division (19 and over); and Professional Adult Division

(19 and over), plus a category called “Nature’s Beauty.” In addition, a DCA Gift Certificate will be presented for Best in Show, and ribbons will be awarded for People’s Choice and honorable mentions. Entry fees are as follows: Youth Division – free; Amateur Adult - DCA Members $8 per photo, non-members $10 per photo; and Professional Adult - DCA Members $10 per photo, non-members $12 per photo.

            Entry forms are available at DCA, or can be downloaded from the website at dorchesterarts.org. For more information, call 410-228-7782.
