iMOCA (Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art) and Indiana Landmarks are seeking photographs for Meaningful Places, an exhibit "to celebrate Hoosier places that have meaning: personal, communal, visual, artistic, historic, natural." They are seeking images of meaningful places, in color or black-and-white. Submissions must be received by May 15, 2017. Entrants will be notified of acceptance by May 31. The images will be on display July 15 – July 28, 2017, at the Rapp Family Gallery, Indiana Landmarks Center, 1201 Central Avenue, Indianapolis. For details, download this call for entries.
What has changed for this competition: Members may submit up to four "stories" in the Topic category. You can use as many images as you'd like on a single image file or use multiple, separate image files as parts to one story (up to the regular maximum of four total). (Note: if you submit separate image files that are part of a single story, include in the file name _1-of-2_ or _2-of-3_ to help indicate how the files go together).
An EXAMPLE of a single image file with multiple images to tell a single story is shown below. The point here is to acknowledge and make room for stories that the photographer needs multiple images to tell a single story.
Submit your entries by Feb 5 to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember also our Open category is available every competition for any image that's not on topic or too aged. So, be sure to get your nature, travel, flora, fauna, food, and macro images into our upcoming competitions!!!
