It’s spring, and we are all physically distanced and living via the interwebs to have shared experiences. At a time of renewal, time of reawakening, we are all yearning to break free. We hope to get outside, see the blooms on the trees, breathe deeply of fresh air, unafraid of life in the time of Corona.
Let’s brighten our outlook on Corona. In science terms, a Corona is a usually colored circle often seen around and close to a luminous body (such as the sun or moon) caused by diffraction produced by suspended droplets or occasionally particles of dust.
We want you to share your light with us. Send us your images of sunshine, light and spring. Metaphor, abstraction and suggestion of sunlight in addition to representational concepts are welcome.
We are looking forward to your visual contributions with our creative community.
This is an open call. Submissions open until Monday May 4th at midnight Eastern Time. Send us an email with pertinent information like your name and image title, date and if available in editions let us know that too. Send us a link your website or social media along with the submission.
Jpeg information should be as follows.
- Size: 72dpi, sRGB, 1200px on the long side
- Your name and image title should appear in the file name of the jpg.
- Save as .jpg
We will put together an online exhibition to be showcased on May 8th.
One image per submission. Choose well.
Open to all. No entry fee.
It is NOT about the virus. There are other calls you can submit to for this. Because of what we have been receiving, we are going to have to change our rules that we will not be including everything that is submitted. We thought we were clear in our call. We provided 6 examples. We may respond to you and ask you to submit another image, but because there is not much time we may just remove it and move on. We are sorry for the confusion. – PT
