Brighton Beach Pictured

Brooklyn Currents | 10/17/2013 | 0 comments

Like to take photos? With a camera in almost every cell phone, it'd be hard to find anyone who doesn't at least dabble in photography.

Here's a chance to to turn your photo-taking pleasure -- or passion -- into recognition and maybe a little cash.

The Brighton Beach Business Improvement District presents "Brighton Beach Pictured," a photography competition and exhibition focused on Brighton Beach.

Photographers are asked to submit photos of the area that "capture the spirit, culture, ambiance, excitement and uniqueness of the Brighton Beach community," says the BID. The project will feature an exhibition in January; deadline for submission is Dec. 1.

A panel of photographers/artists will select the images to be in the exhibition. Cash awards of $500, $300 and $150 will be given to the top three photos as chosen by Ellen Wallenstein, photography professor at Pratt Institute.

Here are the guidelines:
  • All photos must be taken within the Brighton Beach area including the boardwalk and the beach

  • Each photographer may submit up to 5 images

  • Submitted images should be JPGs with a resolution of 72 dpi and a maximum dimension of 1000 pixels on the largest side

  • There are no restrictions on subject matter, but since the exhibition will be in a community venue, overtly sexual images cannot be accepted
