CONTEST CATEGORIES

Geographic Locations

A specific location will be published and may be physically labeled for the duration of the event. The requirement for a location perspective is that the photographer must take the photo from that exact location. The photographer has complete freedom to choose the equipment, direction, subject matter, time of day, time of year, etc. The location of the photographer must be at a designated location and the photo must be taken in the year of the event.

Subject Matter Locations

A specific subject/landmark/icon will be published as a required element in the submissions. This requirement allows the photographer to have the freedom to select their camera position, the time of year and equipment, but must have the specified subject in the photo.

Parker Events

A specified event will be published and the photographer has complete freedom to capture any photo from the specified event. Subject matter and position can be completely unique, but the event will have a limited timeframe. The benefit of event photos is that we can turn these contests around quickly and award the artists quickly after the event. This will create awareness for the finale event(s) and give the photographers motivation and inspiration to participate in the event.

PARTICIPATING GALLERIES

Become A Gallery

We seek the cooperation of the local gallery spaces to host a month-long show that offers the opportunity for artists and galleries to sell art work. We will work with galleries on the selection of the artwork. Artist will have to provide printed and framed artwork for sale in a gallery.

We have decided that it would be best to have the galleries reveal their selected artwork prior to the reveal event. We will have judging done before any images are shown to the public. The award event will be scheduled in the same month as the gallery shows.
