Art call for Female Photographers… Straight Shootin’ MaMa’s

by Mia Roman in Art Exhibits



Straight Shootin’ MaMa’S Photography Show lookin for….


with images showcasing WOMEN AT WORK!


Images created via any form of photography will be accepted for consideration (i.e. shot digitally, unaltered shots, alternative process, mixed media, digital manipulations, montages, photograms, etc.), so long as part of the image is photographically created.


·         The online entry process is very easy, simply upload your images as JPEG files and email

JPEG Size: Your images must be at least 1500 pixels on the longest side (but no larger than 3000 pixels). Save your files at Quality 10 (or just choose the highest quality option). Please keep the file size no bigger than 5 megs per image (when the file is closed).

Also about your JPEGs:  Please do not put a border or any kind of graphic outline around your images.

IMPORTANT: Concerning your JPEG images which you submit for this Show, please do not watermark them nor put your name on them nor put a copyright notice on them. That would distract from the image quality when viewing your pictures. And it’s unnecessary – this is a very private and closed judging process here, and your images are 100% secure. We promise you that. The copyright of your images belongs to you. Showing your work in this exhibit (or any exhibit) does not change this fact. We are only accepting emailed JPEG file submissions.

Entry process:

Send email to with entry specifications below and paypal payment confirmation. We will then send you a confirmation of your non-refundable payment and art submission.

Email: Full name of artist & contact info ……..Title ~ description ~ price of each image submission

Our judges, Mia Roman from Art By Mia & Elena “MaMaRazzi” Marrero will view the entries in a very well organized manner. It is a blind judging process, an even playing field for all entrants. Once they have made their selections for the Show, the artists will all be notified via email by February 23, 2013. Each artist whose art is selected for exhibition in the gallery will arrange to print and frame those selected pieces. The “ready to hang” framed prints must be delivered to El Fogon Center for the Arts at 989 Home St. Bronx, NY 10459 by March 7, 2013 between the hours of 6:30-8:30PM ET.

Work selected for exhibition in the gallery needs to be framed or have some other form of presentation device and arrive here “ready to hang”. Presentation is very important in our view, so we want to encourage you to professionally prepare your art for the exhibition and sales. NO EASELS!

Any person within the 5 boros of NY, including New Jersey and Connecticut may submit images for consideration . Art must be original, and created by the person who enters that work.

$5 for the first entry, and $5 for each additional entry. There is no limit to the number of entries an artist may enter. The “entry fee” is the fee to enter images in this exhibit. The entry fee is non-refundable.

Secure online payment via PayPal account. If you would rather not pay online, you may email your credit card info to us and we will process the submission fees. Payment can be made thru paypal by adding a $2.00 paypal fee to your payment; send to email… Please specify in description your full name, amount paid, number of entries and contact info.


The Entry Materials, images, and entry Fee must be received by February 16th at 11:59 pm EDT.

Final acceptance of entries in the Straight Shootin’ MaMa’S Photography Show exhibition is up to the Curator’s discretion after viewing the delivered framed prints. If a print does not match the appearance of the JPEG entry, or if the print quality or the framing (presentation device) are not suitable quality for gallery presentation, the Curator may ask the artist to replace whichever element is not suitable. This is going to be an excellent show, so we expect that all of the art be presented in a professional manner.


Exhibited work will be available for sale (unless the artist designates certain entries NFS). The price for each framed print is entirely up to each artist to decide. The Art of Photography Show will retain a commission of 10% on all sales that occur during the exhibit or which occur later as a direct result of the exhibit. The balance will be mailed to the artist.

Entries which are accepted for exhibition must be delivered in-person on March 7, 2013 from 6:30-8:30PM ET. Entries must be packaged securely, even if the artist delivers his or her work in-person. Received work that is not sold must be picked up in-person by March 23, 2013 from 3:00-5:30PM ET. We will not retain any packaging box/materials. The artists will be responsible for taking any original packaging and bringing packaging day of show closing to repackage any unsold pieces.

All entrants agree that any image they submit to the Straight Shootin’ MaMa’S Photography Show which is chosen by our judge may be used for marketing and promotional purposes directly related to the  Straight Shootin’ MaMa’S Photography Show.
