Spring 2011 Undergraduate Photography Survey
Hit That Shutter / Deadline: 04/08/11
Hit That Shutter is pleased to announce a call for entries for publication in a professionally printed collection of undergraduate work from around the country. Randomly selected submissions will be periodically featured on the Hit That Shutter website. Images will be reviewed by a panel including Hit That Shutter members and invited jurors. The jury will review and select from the submissions. One or more images from selected artists will be included in the publication. The top ten selected artists will receive a copy of the finished book. Entrants who wish to purchase a copy of the book may do so through the blurb.com bookstore; details will be posted at www.hitthatshutter.org after the book has been published.
Students in any undergraduate program with a concentration of photography can submit any photographically derived work. The purpose of this publication is to present a collection of current work from Undergraduate Photography Programs nationwide. This publication will act as a survey of the current trends and present a moment in contemporary photography.
