This Photography Competition is one of the ways ViewPoint Gallery serves to promote the art of photography. It gives a voice to deserving photographers the world over, and introduces your art to a Canadian audience through their gallery exhibit and website.
There are no restrictions on subject matter. The images will be reviewed by an independent jury comprised of experienced photographers who will select 12 images for exhibition at ViewPoint Gallery.
A maximum of three images may be submitted with each entry. Multiple entries are permitted.
If your images are selected as the winning entries, you will be required to provide a full resolution file for printing. You will be also required to provide a biography (150-word maximum), an artist statement (150-word maximum), website URL (if applicable), and contact information.
The photographers retain copyright of submitted images.
There is an entry fee of 25 CAD that's approximatly 18 USD.
Twelve winning images will be selected for exhibition at ViewPoint Gallery – one image will be exhibited monthly. The winning images will be professionally printed and framed, at no cost to the photographer.
Each winning image will be matted, framed, and displayed as ViewPoint Gallery's featured International Artist of the Month. Each of the 12 winning images will be available for sale at a price set by the artist. If the framed image is sold in the Gallery, the artist will receive the full sale price minus a 15% processing fee.
Winners will also have their work publicized by the gallery with media/press releases submitted to all major Halifax publicity streams.
