Focus ’23 Entry Details

WHO SHOULD ENTER FOCUS ’23

Adults, high school students, and youths (through 8th grade) who take original      photographs, whether traditional or digital, are invited to enter Focus ‘23.

WHAT QUALIFIES

Photographers are limited to submitting two photos, which must be original photos taken by the entrant.

Photos must be wired for hanging (wire running across the back is required due to the type of art hooks that are used to hang the exhibit). For viewing purposes, the minimum size of entry photographs is 8” x 10” framed. If printed on canvas, metal, or plexiglass, a frame may not be necessary; however, it must still have a wire across the back to be hung using the art hooks.

Should the number of photos submitted exceed the exhibit space, one or more judges may screen the photos prior to hanging to choose those that will be exhibited.  Photos chosen to be exhibited will then be judged in the divisions listed above.

ENTRY INSTRUCTIONS

  • Each photographer may enter up to two photos not entered in previous years.
  • Photos may be Black & White or Color.
  • Photos must be framed, wired appropriately (i.e., wired with picture wire or cord extending across width of backside) and ready to hang. Total size of framed entry must be at least 8″ x 10″ including frame (the photo within the frame may itself be smaller than 8″ x 10″).  Works that fail to comply with these specifications cannot be accepted.
