Call for Entries, 2019 Los Alamos Photo Club Photo Show

April 1 to April 27

The Los Alamos Photo Club (LAPC) and Los Alamos Adobe Users Group (LAAUG) announce their annual photo show, April 1-April 27, in the upstairs gallery of the Mesa Public Library.

Entries are accepted from anyone who lives or works in Los Alamos County or belongs to either the Los Alamos Photo Club or the Los Alamos Adobe Users Group. Club and non-club members are generally not limited to the number of entries they may submit. However, should display space not accommodate all entries, preference will be given to club members with the exception that each non- club member will be allowed to display at least one entry. Space availability has not been an issue in the past.

How to Enter:

For each picture you wish to enter, include the following on separate lines.
- Your Name: (Required; e.g. Jane Doe)
- Title: (Required; e.g. Red Rocks of Los Alamos)

- Sale Price: (Optional)
- Your web site: (Optional)
- Your contact e-mail (Optional)
- Priority for hanging: (Required)
- Frame Size: (Required; e.g. 12 x 16 inches)

We will make a display label using some or all of this information. If you do not provide a sale price we will put NFS on your label.

Send entry information by March 29 by email to laphotoclubshow@yahoo.com with the subject line: "Description of entries for 2019 LAPC show by [name of photographer]". You should receive a confirmation e-mail within three days unless your entries are received before March 21. In that case, entries will be confirmed by March 24.

Participants are requested to provide a snack item for the opening reception. At the bottom of your e-mail, please indicate what food you can bring to the April 1 opening.

Entrants are free to post any additional information about their image, including information that did not fit on the display label. Create your own placard or note sheet approximately 8.25" wide by 5" wide or less to be placed below the picture.

On the back of each picture make your own label with your name, phone number, email address and the title. Please include your ranking of #1, #2, #3, etc. To repeat, depending on the number of total entries, we may need to limit individual entries. Active members will get preference if we have too many entries. This has not been a problem in the past.
