CALL for ENTRIES: Rare Earth
On top of Mt. LeConte, a few miles away (& above) my house, there is over two feet of snow. It fell in OCTOBER (pictured left). I hiked to Mt. LeConte Lodge and stayed the night back in May, enjoyed home cooked vittles, the supplies for which were trekked in by llamas (not kidding). It is a rare and wonderful world we live in where such things occur. This next Call wants to celebrate the rarity of our earth. Investigate…
Check out this Call for Entries from the Darkroom Gallery (Essex Junction, VT) for Rare Earth. The entry fee at Darkroom is always low ($20), and they will provide free matting & framing if you work in their standard sizes. Take a look…

CALL for ENTRIES:
It is partially a gift of the subject itself, how varied the genre of landscape photography can be. Combine the extremes of the land each of us has walked, with the variety of visions each of us chooses to communicate, and we’re bound to witness just how rare our earth can be.
They are looking to see a range of what landscape images can be: macro details to vast panoramas, conceptual narratives, abstractions, document, or relational gestures. They hope to feature varied points of view from every crook and bend, angle and junction, on the globe. With your unique images, Darkroom Gallery will honor the extents of this Rare planet we call Earth.
ELIGIBILITY: Entrants must be at least 18 years old. If younger, you must have a legal guardian make the submission for you.

It is no wonder William Neill has developed a deep, spiritual connection with nature, being a resident of the Yosemite National Park area since 1977. His award-winning photography has been widely collected and exhibited in museums and galleries.
His work has been published in several books, and a retrospective collection of his finest landscape photographs was published by Bulfinch Press/Little, Brown & Co, in 1997, entitled Landscapes of the Spirit. Several periodicals have published his images, and Neill writes a monthly column “On Landscape”, for Outdoor Photographer magazine. Neill’s corporate clients include: Sony Japan, Bayer Corporation, Canon USA, Nike, Nikon, The Nature Company, and Sony Music/Classical.
Perhaps most important to the task of jurying Rare Earth, is Neill’s extensive experience in close observation of others’ work – he has been an instructor of photography for 32 years. Mr. Neill is looking forward to the opportunity to see your work, for the purpose of curating what will be an awe-inspiring exhibition of landscape photographs.
AWARDS: All selected entries are exhibited in the Darkroom Gallery and included in a full color exhibit catalog. Juror’s Choice receives a 30×48″ vinyl exhibit banner featuring their image. People’s Choice gains free entry into a future exhibit.
SALES: Darkroom offers free matting and framing of accepted entries for the duration of each of their exhibitions, subject to standard sizes. Photographers set their own prices if they wish to sell their work and retain all rights to their photographs. For commission details, go to the bottom of the Submission Rules page!
