Blue Ridge Mountain Photographers Exhibit

brmp-logo You are invited to enter the National Juried Nature and Fine Art Photography Exhibit sponsored by the Blue Ridge Mountain Photographers (BRMP) and the Blue Ridge Mountains Arts Association (The Art Center). Monetary prizes totaling $2,000 will be awarded.

The exhibit will be on display in The Art Center’s Richard Low Evans Gallery, located in the picturesque mountain town of Blue Ridge, Georgia, during the Fall Arts in the Park Festival. The juried show is open to all photographers, both amateur and professional, and all original photographic media, including film and digital images. Photographers may submit up to three images for an entry fee of $40 ($35, BRMP members). Entries submitted by the early bird deadline of June 1 have an entry fee of $35 ($30, members).

Entries must be designated as Nature or Fine Art on the entry form. The Nature subject category includes, but is not limited to, wildlife, landscapes, waterscapes, plant materials and abstracts in nature. Work submitted in the Nature category must have no elements of mankind and cannot be subject composites. Combined multiple exposures for HDR or panoramas are allowed. The Fine Art category includes, but is not limited to cityscapes, landscapes (including structures), portraits, abstracts and florals or plant life. Subject composites and fine art techniques are acceptable in this category.

Digital images of the work to be submitted should be in the form of JPEG files on CDs. Images should be approximately 1800 pixels by 1200 pixels (6 inches x 4 inches) and print quality (about 300 ppi). Raw files may be requested by the jurors. Note: All image files must be entitled with photographer’s last name, first initial and the entry’s title. This information must match the title and name on the entry form.

All entries must be an original photograph made by the submitting photographer during the previous 2 years. No submissions from previous BRMP competitions, nor photographs previously displayed in the Richard Low Evans Gallery, will be accepted.

Submitted images will be viewed by jurors who will select the photographs accepted for the exhibit. The accepted entries will be judged on technical and artistic merits as determined by the judge, who will choose the prize winners.
