        Waldron Image Submission for Jury

        2018 BPC Annual Juried Exhibit
        This exhibit will again be held at the Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center, during July.
        A change this year is that members will submit their images in digital form for jurying. This means you will not have to make prints, mount, and mat until you are notified whether your submission has been juried in.
        Images that are juried in can then be prepared for exhibition.
        Submission of images will take place Thursday, May 3, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m., in the Club’s regular meeting room at the First Presbyterian Church.
        You may submit up to three images on a flash drive or cd. They will be copied and checked at that time, and help will be available to reformat or rename image files if necessary. Entry fee is $2.00 per image, and you must be a paid BPC member to submit. Images must not have appeared in any previous BPC exhibit, whether juried or not. (Photoshares at meetings do not count as exhibits.) Images submitted to a previous BPC juried exhibit but not accepted may be resubmitted. For complete information, please see “Guidelines for Submitting Works for Jurying” on the BPC website:

          Macro Focus Group Meeting

          We will meet at the Ellettsville library for our annual "Hodge Podge".  
          What does that mean?
          You gather together items from around the house that could be fun to photograph because of texture, color, shape, etc.  
          Then bring them to the library.  
          Our collections provide lots of fun coming up with combinations for those macro shots.
          Also, if you have an interesting technique that you would like to share, let me know. A few years ago I brought my mat cutting equipment to demonstrate.  Would anyone like to see it again?  
          So put this date on your calendar and start searching through your stuff at home.
          Questions?
