"Call for Artists: Queer Photography Competitino"
2003-06-27 until 2003-07-15
Harvey Milk Institute
San Francisco, CA, USA United States of America

Following the success of the HMI Queer Photo Salons, the highly acclaimed series of photographic slide shows, Chloe Atkins, curator, in conjunction with Harvey Milk Institute, an arts, cultural and educational nonprofit organization serving the LGBT communities and its allies, are sponsoring the first annual photography competition with a difference. The aim of the exhibition is to show work by queer photographic artists, which is linked by the notion of the celebration of LGBT identity and community.

Artists are invited to explore this theme in a broad sense. Accomplished photographers from around the world are invited to submit slides of representative work. All photography-based works are welcome, with no limitations on technique. The 2003 Queer Photography Competition will produce an exhibit to fill San Francisco's prestigious Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Community Center from September 17 through October 31, 2003. This is the week before the notorious Folsom Street Fair, and The City will be bustling with people and beautiful weather. The accepted photographs will be seen by thousands of people and entrants will have a tangible benefit from the competition. Jim Van Buskirk, Program Manager of the influential James C. Hormel Gay and Lesbian Center of the San Francisco Public Library, will be the juror for the 2003 Queer Photography Competition.

$1,000.00 in cash prizes will be awarded to best of show.

An entry fee of $25 for up to three slides plus $5 for each additional slide, and a SASE for the convenient return of your slides, must be accompanied by a completed entry form. All entries must be received by July 15, 2003. Accepted prints must be at the Center between August 20 and September 3, 2003.

The prospectus and details may be downloaded from the Harvey Milk Institute website, www.harveymilk.org, or by sending a self-addressed, stamped business-size (#10) envelope to: The Queer Photography Competition, Harvey Milk Institute, 1800 Market Street, San Francisco, CA 94102.
