CALL for ENTRIES: New Images
Does it feel like you eat the same thing day after day. Me too, somedays. To break things up at my house, we challenge ourselves. Last month it was a huge increase in veggies with a concentration of stuff we never buy–like spaghetti squash and kale. This month, it is a reduction of dairy and meat. It isn’t necessarily about the benefit of a particular change so much as the results of having to think about food differently. We end up eating crazy concoctions that we might never have otherwise tried. This next Call has an open theme, but it has to be new (as of January 2011). Time to make a change, folks…
Check out this Call for Entries from Gallery Photographica (San Francisco, CA) for the New Images Photography Awards. The entry fee is a little higher than the average, but the juror is good and the prizes are great. This one might be perfect for you!
