October 1 @ 12:00 am - October 31 @ 11:59 pm
Downtown’s first photography contest provides an opportunity for novice and professional photographers to engage with the downtown area. Contest participants will act as envoys providing their take on five categories for submission that include: people/place; events; architecture; environment and skyline of Downtown Long Beach. UNFILTERED is a signature public art program that will archive the cityscape through the lenses of its residents and visitors.
Any DTLB photograph taken from October 1 – 31, 2017 is eligible for submission. All photos must be submitted through the online submission form and a panel of community members and artists will choose 25 finalists for an exhibition on December 9, 2017 in The Collaborative Gallery located at 421 Gallery. Five photographers will be awarded prizes. A second showing of the 25 finalists in partnership with MADE by Millworks will take place in January 2018 and the community will be invited to vote on a Fan Favorite Award. Lastly, all 25 photos along with photographers biographies will be framed and on display at the DLBA office for the entire year.
