It’s a Sign – Photography Exhibition

It’s a Sign – Photography Exhibition

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so what happens when it’s actually a picture of words? This month 1650 tackles the medium of messaging, with a juried photo competition of the world of signs, words and messages. Motels, street peddlers, shop windows, traffic signs… signs are everywhere, and they all want to talk to us. So send us your billboards, your fridge magnets, your shopping lists and your skywriting… give us your classic neon, your time-worn peeled paint and your ball-point pen on scrap paper. Show us your clever, your factual, even the downright dumb; if it’s some sort of sign, announcement or message that speaks to you, let it speak to us too!

This month at 1650, the message is the medium, and the word is the thing, as we explore the everywhere world of SIGNS!

Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted photos to be included in the It’s a Sign: The Medium is the Message group photography exhibition at 1650 Gallery in Los Angeles.

There is an entry fee of $35 for up to 5 images. Additional entries may be submitted for $5 each.

We offer free matting and framing for accepted photographs that fit our pre-cut mat sizes for the duration of the exhibition. We have a variety of frames and mats to choose from.

We will also print your photo for a nominal fee if you are accepted into the show and would prefer not to mail a print.

Selected artists may choose to offer their work for sale. The gallery retains 50% sales commission.
