Call for Submissions
Photolucida Presents Then. Now. Here.
Then. Now. Here. is a celebration of Oregon – its people, its landscape, its special character and unique history. The premise is simple – show us your photographs of Oregon and its people, THEN or NOW. Historic images, modern images, funny images, poignant images – we want to see your vision of this beautiful state we call home.
In April 2013, as a component of Portland Photo Month, guest juror Motoya Nakamura will curate a slideshow from these images. The slideshow will be presented at outdoor venues in the spring and summer. Images selected for the slideshow will be added to the Oregon Historical Society's photographic archives with the consent of each photographer. These images will become an important part of Oregon's public history. Students, scholars, and history-lovers will be able to access these images at OHS for years to come.
Do you love Oregon? Go out and photograph it! We can’t wait to see your images.
Deadline: Monday, February 25th
Submission is free. See details here: http://www.thennowhere.org/
