May 7, 2013
7:00 pm

Print Salon Topic: “Long Exposures” -¬†Using a long duration shutter speed to sharply capture the¬† elements of an image and blurring others.

Due Date: May 7, 2013

Prints must be submitted to the Edina Art Center (EAC) CCC drop off area by 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, the week prior to the Salon.

How to Prepare Your Prints for Salon:

  • All prints shall be the results of an initial exposure by the member. All other processing may be commercially done, if desired.
  • Matting is encouraged but not required. No frames are allowed.
  • A TITLE, CATEGORY (Topic or Open), member’s NUMBER, and DIVISION entered (Monochrome or Color) must appear on the back top left side of the matte board. Entries with a member’s name will be disqualified.
  • Prints may be entered in either of the Topic or Open divisions but to a maximum of three prints TOTAL per member per salon.
  • Prints shall be no smaller than 15 square inches (3″ x 5″) and no larger than 320 square inches (16″ x 20″). Prints must be mounted on matte board no smaller than 80 square inches (8″ x 10″) and no larger than 320 square inches (16″ x 20″).

The following four pieces of information are required for entry and should appear in the top left corner on the back side of the matte board:

  1. NUMBER: your CCC Member Number (not your name). This number can be found on your Membership Card.
  2. TITLE: a descriptive title for the photograph
  3. TOPIC: indicating a Topic category entry. OPEN: indicating an Open category entry.
  4. MONOCHROME -or- COLOR

Additional Notes:

  • Mounting your print on still board or foam board is recommended. You can use spray adhesive, double-coated tape, Scotch Mounting Adhesive or heat mounting.
  • Titles are for identification – for yourself, and for those who keep club records. Judges don’t always pay much attention to them. Use description instead of commentary (e.g. “Mike on a Bike” instead of “Will He Make It”). Calling a photograph “Untitled” risks confusion in club records and later, in your own memory.
  • If you are able, please also send a digital copy of your print (conforming to digital salon rules) to digitalsalon@crosstowncameraclub.com. If your image is awarded an acceptance during judging, it will be displayed on the Crosstown website and used in the end-of-year presentation.

The Print Committee will interpret and apply these rules at each club salon and have the right to reject any entry not properly presented or labeled.
