Open Call for Submissions
In conjunction with the annual Hyde Park Jazz Festival (September 26-27, 2015), the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts will stage a juried exhibition in Café Logan from Wednesday, September 23 to Sunday, October 25. The exhibition will celebrate Chicago’s vibrant jazz scene and showcase the talents of Chicago area photographers whose work includes original images of Chicago-based jazz musicians.
EXHIBITION: Wednesday, September 23 through Sunday, October 25, 2015
Entrants must be photographers who regularly photograph jazz musicians in the Chicago area. By submitting your photographs, you represent and warrant that you are the photographer who created each photograph and that you hold the copyright for each photograph. There is no entry fee.
Submission and Selection Process
Each photographer may submit up to five (5) images for consideration. Please note: one “image” can be a collage of images or a series of multiple images (such as a triptych) as long as they are presented as one file.
The jury will review the submissions and select images that will be displayed. All photographers will be notified of the jury’s decisions by Wednesday, August 26, 2015.
The Logan Center will display selected work in Café Logan on the first floor. All decisions regarding image arrangement, placement, and lighting will be made by the Logan Center.
Please note that the Logan Center does not post prices or sell exhibited work. The Logan Center will make artist contact information available to patrons that express interest in their work.
Following the exhibition, framed works will be returned to the photographer. They can be picked up from the Logan Center beginning at 9 am Monday, October 26, 2015.
From the images selected to be exhibited, the jury will also select one image in each of the following categories for special recognition:
best color image
best black and white image
best image at a festival
best image at a club
best image at a performance hall
best musician portrait
The images selected for special recognition will be announced at the opening reception on Friday, September 25, 2015 from 6 to 9 pm. Jury decisions are final.
