Photo Show - Submission Form
Social Photo Show
on Saturday, January 19, 2019
pop-up gallery at Johnny Pistolas, Adams Morgan, Washington, DC
Submissions CLOSED at 11:59pm on December 19, 2018
Thanks for your interest! This event aims to:
1) highlight great images taken by amateur photographers, in a local gallery setting.
2) generate conversations -- to make photos social in a way that social media isn't. Thus, don't submit if you don't want to interact with people and talk about it.

More information:

Theme and Criteria: "Protest & Dissent"
Your photo should speak to the idea of "Protest & Dissent." Note that the event will be held the night of the Women's March in DC and the day after the March for Life.

General guidelines:
o It can be from the US or from abroad.
o It can be funny or somber.
o Your photo can be recent or from years ago. This includes Vietnam War or Civil Rights era protests.
o Think about images of protest/dissent that are not people with signs. Consider street art, architecture, and symbolic acts of protest.
o You may certainly include protest signs in your images. But, consider this is a show that highlights great photographic images, not just amusing signs.
o Diversity is encouraged.

Photos will be chosen based on:
o Relevance to theme.
o Aesthetic quality. Is the photo visually compelling?
o Uniqueness.
o Conversation-worthy. Along with your title and caption, is the photo interesting? Is it worth talking about?

o You are not a professional photographer, i.e., one who has made more than 10% of his or her annual income from photography.
o You must be 21 or older on January 19, 2019. The show is 21+.
o You took the photo and own the rights to it.
o Photos may be adjusted or cropped. However, you may NOT change the nature of the image; e.g., you can’t swap colors, add/remove elements, etc.
o You can only do one submission per show, but this submission can contain two photos. (See below.)
o You own your image. However, we may use your name, likeness and submitted photo in order to promote the event. This may include posters, postcards, social media posts, etc.
o You get to keep your photo; take it at the end of the night.
o You are comfortable discussing your photo in a gallery setting.
o Captions, titles and the like may be edited for spelling, clarity or length.
I agree to the rules. *

It also includes admission tickets to the event for you and one guest. You'll receive a payment link later if your photo is selected.) *
I'll attend the whole show, from 6:00-10:00p on January 19, 2019. *
Photo Preparation
o Photos must be high-resolution. Use the original photo, not an Instagram screenshot.
o Don't submit long, narrow panoramas.
