Gallery O on H Call for Entries: Who's Looking Back

Screen Shot 2017-04-17 at 10.50.56 PM

Gallery O on H (1354 H St.) has issued a call for submissions for an upcoming show, and it sounds like an interesting one. They are seeking images from any and all rallies, marches, or demonstrations since Jan. 10 of this year. The goal is to collect a broad range of submissions from ALL levels of photographers for a comprehensive look at the impact of the 2017 Inaugural from January 19-21 and beyond. They would also like to use some placards and posters carried in the marches. The collective body of ALL submitted photos will be installed as a visual time tunnel challenging the viewer to reflect on how they have related / reacted / resisted and/or engaged in the 6-months since January 20th.

ALL images, signage & rights will remain the sole property of the photographer or donor. Reproduction will be limited to the exhibit installation and solely for promotion of the exhibit. The Gallery plans to incorporate hundreds of images they will print out on 8.5"x11" sheets and paste on their walls interspersed with placards and signs and mirrors. With the climate march and the science march coming up there will be so many images "living" on people's phones, they should not hibernate there. There is no fee for submission and entries are non-juried so all submissions are being used.

Submission details

  • Images are requested in jpg and tiff formats only. The Gallery will print the photos on individual sheets. 
  • There is no fee for submissions; the maximum number is 5. 
  • Photo credit attribution (name only) will be printed with each entry. 

More information on how to submit work for the show, which will run June 20 through July 28, is available on the Gallery's website and submission page.
