Call for Entries: Low Tech/No Tech: A Juried Plastic, Pinhole, and Camera-less Show, Vermont Center for Photography

Photographs with the power to amuse and inspire are not necessarily dependent on the quality of the lens and camera used to take them; sometimes the most compelling photographs are born from inexpensive, simple, or alternative equipment. This premise is the theme of VCP’s November Show—Low Tech/No Tech: A Juried Plastic, Pinhole, and Camera-less Show.

We invite VCP members and non-members alike to submit photographs taken with simple plastic cameras, pinhole cameras, homemade cameras—any sort of images created by alternative means. We’re looking for quality, unique prints from less-than-fantastic cameras. We are not looking for images that have been digitally altered to look like they were made with plastic cameras; only the real thing, please. The show will open with a reception during Gallery Walk on Friday, November 4 at 5:30pm.

What to Submit:

All submissions must be received by Saturday, October 7nd. No late submissions will be accepted.

Up to 6 images may be submitted by CD or email submission. Title each file with “your last name_image title.” Files should be approximately 5 x 7 at 300 ppi. Include a separate sheet with your name, phone, address, email, image titles, the process used to capture the image, and the exhibition print size. Include a 9 x 12 self-addressed stamped envelope if you wish your CD to be returned.
