This one I could not pass up on announcing...
Childhood: An International Photo Exhibition. . .
Amateur and professional photographers are invited to submit digital files of their color and black and white works to the Texas Photographic Society (TPS) by October 2, 2009 for Childhood: An International Photo Exhibition. The Exhibition will open at the Dougherty Art Center in Austin, TX in January 2010 and then tour the state of Texas for one year. A color catalogue of the exhibition will be printed and sent to all entrants, select museum curators and photography magazines. Accepted entrants receive three catalogues.
Childhood is fleeting – yet sometimes, in a fraction of a second, photographers can capture its essence: joy, pain, play, boredom, frustration, elation. As an author of children's books I have tried to capture what it feels like to be a child - the good and the bad - and to stimulate a dialogue between children and parents regarding the issues raised in the book. I hope to see creative work that captures childhood's many guises.
