NVAL 2015 International Juried Photography Show
TOTAL AWARDS $3250 – First Place $1500 – Gallery Exhibit – 140 images to be selected by Juror Thom Sempere, Executive Director of PhotoAlliance in San Francisco.
The GALLERY EXHIBIT will be for the month of May 2015 at the North Valley Art League Carter House Gallery in Redding, CA. Our purpose is to professionally exhibit your unique artwork for patrons to view, appreciate and purchase. The gallery is located in Caldwell Park, 48 Quartz Hill Road, Redding, CA 96003, and fronts on the banks of the Sacramento River as it runs through the heart of Redding. It is adjacent to major recreational sites, attracting local and tourist foot traffic.
NORTH VALLEY ART LEAGUE is a non-profit, all volunteer organization. Your entry fees cover the prize money and other expenses of running the photography show. Any remaining monies help fund the operating expenses of the NVAL Carter House Gallery so that we can continue our goal of furthering the visual arts in the Northern California region.
This show is open to all photographers. All forms of photographic expression are encouraged: from film-based to digital capture — black and white darkroom to digital manipulation and alternative processing — montages to hand-colored photographs. All entries must be the entrant’s original work, i.e. the capture of the image as well as dark room and digital processing. This does not preclude the use of professional labs for printing, resizing, and film development.

• Gold Selections – 90 images: Only Gold Selection images are eligible for award. They will be exhibited at our spacious Carter House Gallery and also on the NVAL website www.nval.org. NOTE: Only work submitted for the Carter House Gallery Exhibit is eligible for award.
