Here is the rough draft for text. Do we need to include the websites of GAS
and NYC-IMC? I will call Lea tomorrow to find out about digital specs to add.
Please read critically and suggest improvements- I tried to keep it to one
page for the sake of brevity, but I’m not sure if I’ve forsaken clarity in the
process. Guess that’s what a kick-ass Prince concert does to ya. :) Let's get
this thing polished and ready to slap in the mail/email tomorrow.
See most of you tomorrow,

LAST MINUTE CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:
INDY PHOTOJOURNALISM IN NEW YORK
Organized by the NYC-IMC Photo Collective
To be held at the Gigantic Art Space Gallery in Soho, NYC
Opens August 13th, 2004 6-8 p.m.
DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTED WORK: JULY 23, 2004
The New York City Independent Media Center (NYC-IMC) Photo Collective is
proud to announce a collaborative show at the GAS Gallery in New York City. The
theme of the exhibition is independent photojournalism in New York, and the
documentation of issues surrounding social justice, democracy, and dissent. GAS
director Lea Rekow is helping organize this exhibit, which celebrates the
timeless combination of art and activism!
We’re looking for photos from the past and present, images that mark the
trials, tribulations, and successes of social movements within the context of New
York City history. It could be a photo taken at a civil rights march in the
1960’s, or an image taken only weeks ago. From healthcare to prisoner’s
rights, NYC has always been a hotbed of people inspired to affect change. This
exhibit pays homage to the past, present, and potential future of activism and
the journalists who bring these important faces and actions to the world.
HOW TO SUBMIT
Preferred submissions are actual prints, but we will also accept work in
digital or slide format. There are no size or framing restrictions. Your work can
be matted or non-matted, framed or not framed. Submit your work the way you
feel it is best presented.
When sending work, please affix clear labels to the back of each piece.
Include the following:
2. Phone number
3. Title of work
Each image also needs to be accompanied by a detailed caption or paragraph
that sufficiently describes the moment the photo was taken.
This show will hang from August 13,th 2004 until after the Republican
National Convention leaves NYC in September.
The NYC-IMC Photo Team and the GAS Gallery is not responsible for submitted
artwork. If accepted, all work will be priced and sold with the understanding
that all proceeds will go towards aiding the creation of an independent media
convergence space for independent journalists during the upcoming convention.
If you would like your work returned, please include a properly addressed
SASE. Work should be returned no later than September 15,th 2004.
