Check out Hey, Hot Shot! before the deadline!

Hey Pictory readers! I’ve missed you! (I skipped a showcase to run Phoot Camp.) I hope you’re looking forward to tomorrow’s Bodies of Water showcase, guest curated by Youngna Park.

For those of you looking for opportunities beyond these waters, Youngna is the lead on the Hey, Hot Shot! photography competition, open for entries through this Sunday, August 22nd at 8:00 p.m (EDT). Five photographers will be selected by their diverse panel (which includes Founder Jen Bekman, photographer Todd Hido, and Aperture Publisher Lesley A. Martin) for a group exhibition at Jen Bekman Gallery, a $500 honorarium, a $1000 book credit at the self-publishing company Blurb and the chance to release an edition on 20x200. Jen Bekman will select one of these five photographers as the Grand Prize winner and award this artist a $5,000 honorarium, solo exhibition and two years of representation from Jen Bekman Gallery. So how do you enter? The guidelines are simple: submit 5 photographs from a single body of work, using their online upload tool, with an entry fee of $80.
