The Morgan Hill Photography Club (MHPC) and the Morgan Hill Centennial Recreation Center are pleased to announce an open call for entries for an upcoming gallery show to be held at the Morgan Hill Centennial Recreation Senior Center – September 26, 2016 through November 4, 2016. Only members of the MHPC are eligible to enter.

The theme of the exhibition is Motion. The intent of this theme is to capture your subject in motion and to emphasize its movement in your photograph – even when the movement is very small, slow and/or subtle. Everything around us moves so there is plenty of subject matter to choose from. Your subject can be frozen in action (defying the laws of nature), or portrayed as it moves through time (motion blur). The key lies in controlling your shutter speed. Be prepared for the moment by anticipating the action, pre-focusing, panning, and, most of all, take a lot of pictures (keep your eye on the action, wait till later to look at your LCD). All photos must represent the theme and must be suitable in subject matter for a diverse and general audience.

Each MHPC member may submit up to three (3) works for review by the selection committee. If submitting more than one image, your chances of selection will be increased if the images are of different subjects. The photographs must be the original work of the photographer, have been captured by a digital or film photographic process, be framed or mounted, and have not been in a previous MHPC exhibition. The minimum size of accepted photographs is 8″ x 10″ (exclusive of the mat and or frame).

Please submit online by emailing a jpg copy of the image to no later than 09:00PM Sunday, August 28, 2016. MHPC will only accept entries submitted via email which are received before the deadline. Click here to download the Exhibition Rules for more detailed guidelines.

NOTE: Please read the Exhibition Rules carefully as some of the criteria has changed.
