As mentioned in the previous Summer Update, the IAPP has a Panoramic Photo show booked for November 25 through December 23 at the Valley Photo Center in Springfield, Massachusetts. http://www.thevalleyphotocenter.com/ We would like to showcase some of the great work that our members produce and what better way to do it then this new venue. DJohn McCarthy, the Center Director says that just before Christmas, this is the business time of the year and would like to get a lot of entries. Also we have hopes that this show will be the start of the traveling show that we can take on the road to other photo gallery venues around the country. Here are the submission details.
Select up to three of your best and favorite panoramic images for the show. We want to showcase your best work and intend to accept all prints (within reason) for this show. Make prints on glossy, semi-glossy or luster paper. Maximum paper length is 40 inches which includes a 2 inch white border all around. Little Planets accepted with a maximum length per side of 24 inches which includes the 2 inch border.
Roll up prints and mail in a tube to:
IAPP Show – David Orbock
Full Circle Gallery
33 East 21st Street
Baltimore, MD 21218
Full Circle Gallery will be mounting the prints on foam core board and attaching hangers. All the finished prints will then be delivered to Springfield. Closing date for receiving prints at Full Circle is November 10.
Also ASAP, make a low resolution file of each print you plan to submit, 900 pixels wide the we can use on the IAPP and Valley Photo Center web sites and other material to promote the event. Include the following information for the wall placard: Print Title, Print Location, Camera/Method (example, Nikon Digital/Stitched, Cirkut/Film), etc.), Your Name, City, State, Country, Price (put NFS (not for sale) or a price, should not be more the $100 (gallery takes 30% cut))
Send the file and print info to Tom at email@example.com.
We tentatively have a reception planned for Saturday afternoon, December 3rd from 1pm to 3pm. It would be great to have you there for the reception if you can make it.
