2018 Exhibition at Franklin City Hall

It's All About The Light

Next Exhibit: 

Our first photo showing for 2019 will be at the Franklin City Hall.  We will be able to exhibit through the month of May and June.  Our Juror for this show will be David Wright of David Wright Photography, and our theme will be “It’s all about the light“.  Bill Fortney, our Speaker at the February meeting, emphasized this point and then presented examples of his own outstanding images. Now it’s your turn.  Get your images ready and, to borrow a phrase, “Let There Be Light”.

For our showing you can submit up to 3 images.  Being limited on space, 25 images will be selected for this show.  Selections can be dropped off at our May 7th meeting or at the City Hall on the 8th or 9th.  Exact day to be specified later. 

For this exhibition, there is no time frame limit for when the images were taken.

All images must be submitted no later than April, 7.

Please adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Once an image has been selected and exhibited in a BPG Exhibition it cannot be re-used for future BPG Exhibitions.
  • Images need to be family appropriate for a public space
  • Naming images for submission:
    • First name Last name – Title of Exhibit-number.
      E.g. Mary Smith – Its All About The Light-1
  • Images must be submitted as JPG files with 2000 pixels on the long side as this allows judging to be done with enough resolution.

Framing Guide

Framing-Guide

All participating images need to be in a 16″ x 20″ frame with a 1-2” wooden black frame. Double matting is allowed. Note that frames are measured by the size of the opening in the back not by the outside of the frame. Mats should be a minimum of 2”.

Metal or plastic frames will not be accepted.

Hanging hardware must be fixed to the back (D-rings and wire). Wire should be 2½” from top of frame and attached to the frame itself.

There are many ways to sign your image. If the mat is going to come up to the edge of the image the artist should sign the back or front of the image. The mat may also be signed. If your image is going to be offset from mat (see above) it should be signed on the front of the image, not the mat. Whichever you choose, remember that the mat can at some point become separated from the image so it is important to have the image signed.

Theses examples should help bring clarity how to frame for both landscape and portrait orientation photos.
