A Juried Photo Exhibition Celebrating the History and Character of the Rural South
Weekends, September 19th through September 28th
Pike County, Georgia
Deadline for Submissions is June 15, 2008
“SlowExposures,” the nationally recognized photography exhibition that underscores the diversity and complexity of the rural South, is currently inviting fine art photographers to apply to this year’s sixth annual event by submitting their photos taken in the “Southeast” and/or “West Central Georgia” to a distinguished panel of professional photo jurors by Sunday, June 15th. The theme for this year’s exhibit is “The Rural South – Real and Imagined.”
Jurors Jamie Allen (George Eastman House, Rochester, NY) and Mike Smith (East Tennessee State University, Johnson City, TN) will choose a limited number of images from the scores of images that are submitted by mid-June. These will be showcased in the annual exhibition and sale that opens on Friday, September 19 for two weekends in the picturesque town of Concord, Georgia, in Pike County, an hour’s drive from the Atlanta airport.
“SlowExposures 2008” features two categories: “Photographs of the Southeast” can include images taken anywhere in the Southeastern United States. “Photographs of West Central Georgia” can include images taken anywhere in Bibb, Coweta, Crawford, Harris, Heard, Lamar, Meriwether, Monroe, Muscogee, Spalding, Talbot, Taylor, Troup and Upson Counties in addition to Pike County, home of “SlowExposures.”
The deadline for submissions is June 15, 2008. Photographers may enter up to four images in each category for a nonrefundable fee of $30 per category with checks written to the Pike Historic Preservation, beneficiary of SlowExposures. Final winners will share $2,000 in awards at the September show.
