Rayko Photo Center– “It’s Still Life”

National juried exhibition of still life work

Deadline: June 25th

From the calls for entry webpage:

“The competition is open to artists photographing inanimate objects and interior spaces. Subject matter can be anything as commonplace as a pear (and man, are there some amazing pear pictures out there!) or as strange as a dead animal, perhaps too literal. Subjects may be either natural:  food, flowers, plants, rocks, shells, hair clippings, and so on.  They can also be man-made: books, toys, glasses, vases, fishing lures, etc. Settings may be artificial/set-up or simply found and perfect. There’s a lot left up to interpretation…as well as artistic freedom!”
