The Morgan Hill Photography Club (MHPC) and the Morgan Hill Historic Society are pleased to announce an open call for entries for an upcoming gallery show to be held at Villa Mira Monte, Morgan Hill House – July 1, 2016 through August 13, 2016. Only members of the MHPC are eligible to enter.

The theme of the exhibition is Passion for Plants. The prevalence of plants provides photographers with a plethora of photographic opportunities. It is easy to find compelling subjects all around you – botanic gardens, walks in the woods, open fields, and even your own back yard. Photographing plants involves slowing down, seeking out details, and taking time to craft photographs. Look for patterns and textures. Sometimes the subjects are tiny, which makes them ideal for macro-photography. Since many photographers pass by these kinds of scenes without a second thought, you have ample opportunity to make unique, creative photographs. 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, June 5, 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.
