Cell(phone), a National Juried Exhibition
CALLING ALL CELL PHONE PHO-TOGS!!! Camera phone technology and the accessibility of cell phones has changed people’s abilities to take photos. Along with better cell phone camera technologies, apps to edit photos, and the use of photos in social media, our world has become visually more expressive with the use of pictures. For this month’s show we want to celebrate the art of the “cell phone photograph”. So, show us your best shot/shots in this unique show exclusively for photos taken and edited solely using the cell phone.
All artists age 16 and older may apply to this show. Work previously exhibited in LibertyTown’s gallery is not eligible. Work must be original and completed within the last five years.
Choose a category! For this show we have five categories: Portrait, Landscape, Urban/Industrial, and Animals.
Tell us about your photo! Which camera phone and app did you use?
Print them up! Photographs must be printed and ready to hang, with no sawtooth hangers. Work accepted into the show must be for sale. Applications must be submitted electronically; no physical pieces will be accepted at the gallery for jurying. LibertyTown will provide pedestals when needed. LibertyTown reserves the right to reject works accepted by the juror due to content, space constraints, or inability to properly install the work.
A non-refundable application fee must be paid for each submitted piece before it will be juried. Payment may be submitted electronically via our website or by check delivered to LibertyTown.“Friends of LibertyTown” Members receive discounted jury fees.
