It takes practice submitting work to competitions & galleries. Not to mention curating your own work for books or even Photo Club PDX challenges! So we are going to look at the art of curating submissions. A panel of ‘blind’ jurors are going to help us with this challenge.


  1. Submission Theme: “Photos YOU Love”

  2. Your Artist Statement. Yup- it is usually asked for. Keep it under 250 words.

  3. Meet the criteria for naming conventions, how to send in your submission and the required info. Submit by the deadline, October 31st 11:59 PM!  Missing any of those will Disqualify you from the digital challenge. You will receive an email that your submission has been accepted or denied with no other details (so check your work). If you submit early enough and receive a denial - you may still have time to resubmit.

  4. All submissions will be passed on to the jurors. They are then going to choose their favorite images from the bunch.

  5. We will hear from the jurors on November 13th. We will gain insight as to how they sorted through the images, what they looking for, how the artist statement & title played a role in what they did or did not choose. We will have the chance to hear from the experienced jurors point of view and pick their brains!
