This project was made possible, in part, with funding by the Arts & Science Council and the North Carolina Arts Council, an agency of the Department of Cultural Resources, and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art.
Mint Hill Arts is pleased to announce its April 2017 Call for Artists: Judged
Photography Competition. This year's judged photography show will have two categories,
with awards in each.
Categories: Unaltered Photography: Art, shot with a camera, which is a truthful
representation of what was seen through the camera lens.
Post-processing is kept to a very minimum, changed digitally only in
ways that were formerly possible in a darkroom, i.e., adjusting brightness
and contrast. Cropping and converting to Black and White is acceptable.
Modified Photography: Artwork that uses computer programs to change
the photograph such that the image is no longer a truthful representation of
what was seen through the camera lens. Photography of this kind uses various
post-processing programs to modify or manipulate the original image to
create the finished product.
Open To: Members and non-members of Mint Hill Arts.
Prizes: First Place: $100 (to be awarded in each category)
Second Place: $75 (to be awarded in each category)
Third Place: $50 (to be awarded in each category)
Honorable Mentions: $25 gift certificate (four total)
