Access to darkroom and digital printing

Photo I (PHOT 1000) gives access to the darkroom while you are enrolled, but what about after that semester? Many photo students want to continue developing film and making prints.

Many photo courses include a lab fee that allows you to use the digital printers, but what if you are not enrolled in one of those courses in a given semester?

Now you can pay the associated lab fees, and have access to the darkroom and/or the digital printers during a semester when it's not included in your class lab fees.

(Access is during normal class session dates. Regular hours apply, of course, and there may sometimes be limitations if a class is in session in the space you hope to use, just as with any lab fee access.)

ABOUT THE ONLINE ENTRY PROCESS
The online entry & image upload process does require time, depending on your advance preparedness and image sizes, so please allow yourself adequate time when applying for & submitting your work to this exhibit. Advance registration prior to entry deadline date and image uploads to a Portfolio are highly recommended. There is no fee to register to use the CallforEntry process, but there is an entry fee to register for our exhibit (payable at the end of the whole process for our particular entry).

WHAT IS A JURIED EXHIBIT?
  • A juried exhibition is a competitive exhibit process. The artworks that you submit will be in competition against all of the other artworks submitted for consideration for this exhibit. Some artworks will be selected for the final show, while others will not be selected. The exhibition Jurors make all final decisions as to which artworks are selected for the exhibit. If you do not wish to enter into a competition, then please do not submit your artworks for this juried exhibition.
  • At no point during the jurying process are our Jurors shown any artist-entrants names. This process is called a Blind Jury and your works are most fairly considered by the Jurors. The Jurors are shown a digital image presentation of only the artwork, the artwork title, year, media, dimensions--NO names of artists are shown and in fact, most Jurors do not see/know the name of the selected artists until the exhibition actually goes up on Gallery walls, months after jurying has taken place.
  • Artwork availability: Please do not double-book your artwork, do not commit it for other conflicting exhibits or sell it without possibility of exhibition availability if you plan on entering your work into our show. Please do not enter work for jurying if you are not able to follow through with the rules of entry/art & exhibit guidelines.
