I’m starting a new feature on my site called “Opportunity Weekend” where I kick the weekend off by sharing a few opportunities for artists and photographers. These are essentially places that are looking for your work.
The thinking behind this is that a lot of folks work a desk job and so the prime opportunity they have to send out their work lies on the weekend. This got me to thinking that, if I could share a couple of opportunities with you maybe each weekend, it might help you along on your journey of getting your artwork out there more and participating in more shows and the like. It’s my way of encouraging folks who work full time and do art on the side to go on and get after it, getting work out into the world more. I hope it flies.
So, to start things off, here are a few opportunities for you this weekend:
- The Fort Worth Community Arts Center has a call for entries. You can read more about it on their link: http://www.arts.texas.gov/jobs-opportunities/call-for-entries-juried-exhibition-19/ The prize is a solo show.
- Lenscratch has a call for entries called “Mommie Dearest” in honor of Mother’s Day. The deadline is May 8th. You can submit one image and I believe every image will be included. Here’s the link for more details: http://lenscratch.com/exhibitions/submit/
- The Southeast Center for Photography in Greenville, South Carolina has a call for entries with the theme “The Forsaken.” Details: http://www.sec4p.com/calls/
Please let me know if you find this a useful feature and I will try to make it a regular habit to share calls for entries, especially ones with upcoming deadlines so that you can get your work out there more.
Until next time…
