Opportunity Weekend

Once again, it’s time for Opportunity Weekend. Here are some opportunities for photographers who want to get their work out more often. I hope you make the most of them.

  • The Photographic Center Northwest is once again hosting an annual fundraiser, called the LONG SHOT. I’ve participated in this before, it’s really quite a lot of fun. The way it works is that you shoot the images on the specified date and then submit the work to be juried. You are guaranteed to get an image accepted and, for a flat fee, they print the image and display it for you. The images are then sold to raise funds for educational program at the Center. It’s a great cause, it’s a lot of fun, and I highly recommend you try it out if you’re so-inclined. Like I said, you are guaranteed to get one image included so it’s an opportunity to help raise money for photography education and have one of your pieces displayed in Seattle. Who does not want to do that, right? Details at the following link: http://pcnw.org/support/longshot/

It’s a special 3 day weekend in the ‘States this weekend, as we’re recognizing Memorial Day, a day to honor those who gave us our freedom. A special shout out to our military this weekend and I hope you make the most of your extended time off by sending some work out for consideration.

Until next time…
