City of Southfield seeks entries for Photo Prize competition and public art exhibition
The city of Southfield will sponsor the Southfield Photo Prize to showcase the many talented photographers in the area while also creating an exciting public art exhibit that the community can enjoy and participate.
The City is currently seeking qualified entries for the Southfield Photo Prize contest that will run this summer from June through August. Accepted entries will be enlarged and displayed at various locations throughout Southfield for public viewing and voting. The public will be encouraged to visit all the entries and to vote on their favorite installation. Submissions will initially be reviewed by the Total Living Commission that will select the top 20 entries that will be displayed and eligible for public voting. The photograph that receives the most overall votes will be announced at a public exhibition held in September.
Photo finalists will be posted on a special Southfield Photo Prize section of the City’s Web site (www.cityofsouthfield.com) for judging by the public from July 3 – August 18, 2017. The photo that receives the most overall votes will be featured in the City’s 2018 calendar including a photo credit. The other finalists may also be featured in the calendar and other city marketing materials.
