What Brings You Here?
The Paris Poets Society is now accepting entries for its group poetry and photography exhibition/book, What Brings You Here? The exhibition/book will explore the personal and individual experiences and memories of those living in or visiting Northeast Texas. The exhibition/book will be based on the journey of the artists—what brings them to the place they now find themselves artistically as well as the geographical influence Northeast Texas has had on their lives.
The photographs are intended to stand alone and not as illustration of the works of poetry. All capture types and photographic processes are welcome. The exhibit is seeking photographic work that expresses personal ties to Northeast Texas. You do not have to live in the area currently, but you must have some expressed tie to Northeast Texas. Please explain how this applies to you in your artist statement.
• All images must be submitted by email. You are welcome to use Dropbox. Send JPEG images to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line, “[Last name] & What Brings You Here.”
• Digital images should be 1000 pixels on the longest side saved in JPEG format at 72 ppi, sRGB color space.
• Label each image with consecutive numbers followed by your name, i.e., 1FirstName_LastName.jpg.
• Send separate images rather than links.
• Artist statement (maximum 250 words)
• Complete contact information (name, mailing address, phone and email)
• Payment for entries may be made through PayPal or by check, payable to Paris Poets Society. Mail checks to What Brings You Here?, 10 First Street NE, Paris, Texas 75460.
