2013 Champlain Valley Photo Slam

A Community-Wide Photo Happening - This year at ArtsRiot in Burlington

On exhibition atGallery in Burlington Until June 23rd

Attack in Flight! 1st Place People's Choice by Djorn Crown, St. George, VTIf you live in the Champlain Valley (full or part time) and love making photos, make photos for a living, as a serious passion, or as some say, to get your fix; we want to see your shots.

Submit up to five images, online, by email or by CD and we will select and print at least one and display it during a four week exhibition complete with an artists' reception at the ArtsRiot in Burlington, VT. Download this PDF brochure and send it to your photographer friends.

Last year's Photo Slam receptionFor this exhibit, three members of our local photography group, Art-in-Photography, will select at least one of your images for display. Juror's will be Polly Raine, Denise Johnson and Ken Signorello. Last year we displayed 130 images and we want to beat that this year.

This year we are teaming up with the ArtsRiot at 420 Pine St, Burlington, VT.  We'll house the exhibition there for a total of four weeks with our reception and the Photo Slam itself on May 25th at 5:30 pm. We'll award 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes from LeZot Camera and we'll have a cache of door prizes. Pass the word to all your photographer friends.

We'll also have a closing reception on June 23rd at 4:30 pm where photographers can talk about their work, swap and pick up their prints on June 24th.
