Cellscape Photo Contest @ Gallery 81435
Oct 10 – Dec 2 all-day
Cellscape Photo Contest @ Gallery 81435 | Telluride | Colorado | United States

Welcome to the 2014 Cellscape Photo Contest and Exhibit. A landscape photo made with a cell/smart phone is a cellscape. The modern hike inspires media activity. The cell camera snapshot provides the most immediate access to recording the moment. Immediacy, inspiration and convenience triumph lens quality. The cellscape is inevitable and it has never been easier.

Winning images, along with many contestants’ photos, will be printed and displayed at the Cellscapes exhibit and celebration at Gallery 81435 on Wednesday, December 3, from 5-8pm, and prizes will be awarded.

The goal is to fill Gallery 81435 with cellscape images taken since August 2014. There is a small entry fee required that will be used for exhibition costs.
$5 to enter up to three images, $10 for unlimited entries.
Printed images will be for sale on the night of the exhibition.
Artists will receive 50% commission on sold work.

WHEN: Currently accepting submissions.
DEADLINE for entries is Friday, November 14, 2014.

EXHIBITION:
December 3, 2014, 5-8pm. Noel Night.
