Application Form

Cars play a central role in our global culture. It’s hard to image life without them. We hold antique car rallies, NASCAR races, and participate in Sunday drives and drive-in movies. But, we also realize the impact they have on our existence and our environment. For this exhibition we seek photographs of cars of any type. Abstractions of fenders, social documents of teens behind the wheel, demolition derbies, highway breakdowns, car shows and car graveyards — the sky (and the open road) is the limit! Juror David H. Wells will choose 40 photographs for display at PhotoPlace Gallery from November 5th through November 27th. David will also select up to 35 additional photographs for the gallery’s Online Annex. All selected work will be included in a full-color exhibition catalog available for purchase. To help artists defray costs, PhotoPlace Gallery offers to mat and frame work selected for exhibition free of charge, providing artists print their images to our pre-cut mat and frame sizes. Submission fee: $25 for five photos, $6 each additional photo.
