Hindsight 20|20 is the theme of the 12th annual juried show, TWELVE. During a year of unexpected upheaval and startling adjustments at every level of society, Hindsight 20|20 provides photographers with the opportunity to look back at and explore a subject of interest from any time period. All photographs have a retrospective quality both for the maker and for the viewer. As Aldous Huxley said, “The more you know, the more you see.” Viewpoint welcomes your concepts, creativity and craftsmanship in interpreting the Hindsight 20|20 theme. All photographic techniques are acceptable for this juried open call exhibit.
TWELVE: Hindsight 20/20 is an open call for all artists to submit photographs of any subject and print medium. The maximum size including the mat is 22 x 28. For prints not presented in traditional gallery mats (e.g., prints on aluminum), the maximum overall size is also 22 x 28.
All submissions must be made online through the Viewpoint website using EntryThingy.
Images must be sized to EntryThingy specifications and should not exceed 8 MB, nor be less than 2MB. Digital files must be saved as JPEG format with Image Quality set to High and at least 1200 pixels in the longest dimension. For multiple-image works – for example, a diptych or triptych –all constituent images must be included in a single file. (Sizing suggestion: set your ppi to 300.) Each submitted image file must have a descriptive title that DOES NOT include your name.
All images will be juried in electronic format as submitted. The decisions of the juror and Viewpoint are final.
1 image: $12
2-4 images: $36
5-6 images: $48
Note: Entry fees are non-refundable and are charged when your online entry is submitted. Submit up to six (6) images. Multiple images sets, such as triptychs and diptychs, are considered to be one image and should be submitted as one file.
