Call for Art
Fenton Art Council’s “Through The Lens” photo contest and exhibit 2023
This year’s Theme: “Flowers of Fenton”
Deadline to submit: Sunday September 24, 2023, midnight
Exhibition of top photos: Beale St. Smokehouse BBQ, Banquet Room
Exhibit Dates: October 5, 2023 - October 26.
There are lots and lots of flowers growing in the Fenton area, from the baskets of impatiens on Leroy St. to lilies blooming in the lakes, to tiny volunteer flowers pushing up from cracks in the concrete and so much more.
When you are taking photos use the highest resolution (file size) your camera can record. Images that are 72 ppi look fine on a phone. They can even look okay on a computer monitor. But are terrible when enlarged to 8" x 10" for printing. All photos chosen for this exhibit will be printed at 8" x 10”. When shooting, think about good composition, unusual or striking lighting. Look for creative shot angles, unusual juxtapositions, something surprising. Think of ways to make your photos different from the norm. Apply with your absolute best, large file photos.
You can submit up to 3 photos, taken in the Fenton area, within the past 2 years.
In the application, list the title and location where each image was photographed. (such as behind the middle school, or on Shiawassee Road, etc.) All submitted images will be juried by local photographers and the top winners of submitted images will be in the exhibit. Fenton Arts Council will cover the cost of printing and matting them for the exhibit. Thank you Billmeier Camera for printing the winning images.
Each image can only be submitted by the person who photographed it.
Deadline to submit photos is September 24, 2023, midnight. Results of the jury will be emailed by September 29, 2023. The exhibit will run October 5 through October 26, 2023. All are welcome to view the exhibit during regular business hours.
The Opening Reception and Award Presentation will be October 5, 2023, 7:00pm Pick up of your matted photos after the exhibit will be October 28, 2023, location to be determined. If you do not pick up your photos on this day, or make alternate arrangements ahead of time, they will become the property of the Fenton Arts Council.
