International Competition for Photographs and Photo-Based Artwork at Umbrella Arts, New York City
Conceived and juried by Harvey Stein, Director of Photography, Umbrella Arts; photographer, educator, author, curator
We are seeking photographs of FAMILY. Photographs that are a bit unusual and out of the ordinary, not the conventionally nice or cute images that are often seen. Your photographs can be amusing, interesting, frank and biting.
Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines FAMILY as a group of people who are related to each other. This is fine with us but we’d like to expand the definition beyond what we are born into. Let’s include those who we choose to “adopt” as a family, like a close group of friends; a group of people united by certain convictions and a common affiliation, and a group of things related by common characteristics, as the woodwind family of musical instruments, for instance. A group of circus performers, a band of brothers, a theater group, or even the Mafia.
The tone can convey an appreciation of the joys and difficulties experienced by FAMILY in the essentially absurd predicament of getting along and living. FAMILIES pictured in environments from homes to city streets to the ends of the earth are all being sought.
The exhibition is open to all photographers working in color, black & white, film, digital, and beyond, etc. Any format, any camera, any style is acceptable.
Happy or unhappy, families are all mysterious. We have only to imagine how differently we would be described - and will be, after our deaths - by each of the family members who believe they know us.
ENTRY DEADLINE: December 5, 2016

HOW TO APPLY
Click here for a Step-by-Step guide on how to apply to exhibits through CallForEntry.org. You can also watch a short video on How to Apply here. The good folks at CallforEntry.org are better suited to assist you with technical issues with your online entry. For assistance, please contact email@example.com during weekday business hours only, Mountain Standard Time.
THE JURYING PROCESS
The method by which ALL exhibitions are juried at Art Saint Louis is always a fair and blind (anonymous) process. What this means is that at no time before or during the jurying process do our Jurors know the names of entering artists. Exhibit Jurors are presented all entrants' JPEGs in an anonymous digital image presentation and the only information provided to them pertains to the artwork and includes the following: artwork title, year, media, dimensions, and method of presentation (displayed on the wall, sits on a pedestal). To repeat: Jurors are never shown the names of any artists entrants during the jurying process. All artworks that you submit for jurying are presented one after the other in the presentation that the jurors view. So, if you are artist #25, your artworks/entries are in the presentation after artist #24 and before artist #26. From the jurying presentation and information provided about the artworks, the jurors make their selections for the final exhibit. Artwork selection decisions are in part based on a set of specific jurying instructions & criteria relating to the theme of the exhibit as well as specific conditions & rules of the Gallery. For non-thematic exhibitions, a well-rounded exhibit is based on the Jurors' aesthetics along with general exhibition criteria established for all exhibits by Art Saint Louis' Artistic Director. This is a FAIR jurying process. Jurors often do not even see names for selected artists until they arrive to the Gallery to view the final exhibit on the Gallery walls, many months after an exhibit has been juried.
