Submission Deadline: Sunday, December 20, 2020
What is the BCC Members Exhibit for 2021?
This year’s members’ exhibit will be a virtual gallery on the Griffin Museum of Photography’s web site. The virtual gallery will contain digital photographs from only BCC members based on the theme: Motion/Stillness.
What is the Exhibit’s Theme?
The theme of this virtual exhibit is Motion / Still.
We are looking to showcase images that evoke movement and or stillness.
Images of motion might use long time exposure, camera movement, subject motion blur, subject action, or other approaches to make movement visible or suggested.
Images evoking the idea of still could be still lifes. Also, smaller and larger landscapes or interior spaces that suggest stillness, quiet, peace whether through vastness of space or intimate detail. Find your own way to depict stillness.
It could be possible to include these contrasting themes juxtaposed in the same image, and that is welcome but not necessary.
How many images can I submit?
To provide Paula the latitude she needs to create a cohesive exhibit, you must submit a minimum of 3 images (5 images maximum). Paula Tognarelli, the Griffin Museum of Photography’s Executive Director and Curator, will make the selection of one image from each member who has made submissions.
How do I submit my images for the Exhibit?
You must complete the Submission Form no later than Sunday, December 20, 2020 at 11:30 pm. The submission form includes a image file upload function.
About the Submission Form

- The longest side of your image can equal but not exceed 1200 pixels.

For each image submitted, the form asks you to complete the following fields:
- Image Title
- Image Alt Text: This field should contain a short (5-7 words) description of your image. This alt text is used to describe images to online viewers who are unable to see the photos. This includes screen readers and browsers that block images, but it also includes users who are sight-impaired or otherwise unable to visually identify an image. Including alt text ensures all users, regardless of visual ability can enjoy the exhibit.

When will I know which of my image(s) were selected for the exhibit?
Paula Tognarelli will inform me when her final selection is complete — date unknown at this time.
How can I let my friends and family know about the exhibit?
