Has your portfolio devolved into an anthology?
A retrospective? A portfolio has one purpose and that’s to get you work. Every image that doesn’t show your vision dilutes it.
This roundtable will start with a brief tour of Clearstory: an affordable, custom, book-publishing company based here in San Diego. There will be samples of their printing and a representative will be available to answer your questions about how Clearstory can make your next book stand out and display your images in the best way.

The roundtable will continue with an informal discussion of what works, what doesn’t, and how to go about editing and sequencing a book

The first six people to sign up will get 10 minutes each to show their current print book (or online version) for a peer review. We encourage everyone to bring their book to share whether or not you are chosen to present.

Don’t miss out! Clearstory will hand out $25 OFF custom portfolio coupons to ALL attendees. One lucky attendee will win a free custom photo book with a value of $250.00!!!

Save the date! This roundtable is a perfect warm-up for our formal Portfolio Review that will be held May 31th, 2014.

The Expansion of Fair Use

with Nancy Wolff
Tuesday, April 29, 2014

In recent years, the Fair Use Doctrine has been used to successfully defend an ever broadening array of unauthorized uses. This expanded application of Fair Use is rapidly becoming the biggest threat to the continuing monetization of photography.

Wide Open Digital 2 – Juried Exhibition – Entry deadline May 15th

“Wide Open Digital 2″ will give digital artists and photographers a chance to showcase work that falls anywhere on the digital spectrum. Whatever style or technique you use, however traditional or avant-garde, we want to see it. We can’t wait to see exciting works ranging from digital painting to cutting-edge generative art that uses computer software algorithms.

Eligibility
All visual artists and photographers worldwide—whether professional, nonprofessional, or student—are eligible to submit their digital artwork for this exhibit. Entrants under age 18 may enter only if a parent or a guardian enters on their behalf. Every discipline, genre, style, and school of thought within digital art and photography is welcome.

Important Dates
Entry Deadline: May 15, 2014
Online Exhibit: July 1, 2014
Physical-Gallery Exhibit: To be announced

Exhibits
All images selected as Wide Open Digital 2 finalists will appear online. Works awarded a Gold Stellar Art Award will be invited to appear in a physical, “brick-and-mortar” gallery exhibit at a later time. We reserve the right to extend entry deadlines and change exhibit dates.

Online Exhibits
Jurors will review submissions and will choose, for presentation online, all images they find meritorious. These selected works will appear in solo online galleries, each devoted to only one artist or photographer. These solo galleries will display work distinguished by the jurying process and thus will provide artists and photographers a showcase where art curators, patrons, and collectors can view works that have already been “vetted” by art experts.

Online exhibits begin as a “Current Exhibit” and are later archived, during which time all selected images remain in the solo artist galleries, available for viewing and, if the artist or photographer desires, for sale. (Artists and photographers may choose not to offer their images for sale online.)

Plans are already being made to create permanent solo galleries that will showcase all of an artist’s or a photographer’s juried selections from previous Digital Arts: California exhibits. We expect that these permanent galleries will become an important source of “vetted” artwork for art curators, collectors, and patrons.

Physical Exhibits
Works that have been awarded a Gold Stellar Art Award will be eligible for exhibition in a physical gallery setting. Such exhibits will be held periodically and will combine these award winners from various Digital Arts: California online exhibits. How often such physical exhibits are held will depend on the volume of entries to our online exhibits as well as other factors.

Jurors
Selection of the finalists that will appear online in solo artist/photographer galleries will be made by Virginia Christensen and Glen Christensen. Virginia has enjoyed a long career as an editor and a publisher of photography and art books, and is, herself, an accomplished photographer. Glen has had a distinguished career as Art Director at major record companies in both New York City and Hollywood. Among his professional accolades have been two Grammy nominations for Best Album Package. To learn more about the backgrounds of Virginia and Glen, see the “About” section of this website.

Winners of the Gold Stellar Art Awards and Stellar Art Awards will be chosen by Virginia, Glen, and a distinguished guest juror.

Entry fees are $25 for the first 5 (or fewer) images, and $4 for each additional image. You may pay for up to 14 images using the PayPal “Pay Now” button. If you wish to pay for more than 14 images using PayPal, please contact us via the Contact page of this website for payment instructions.
