Baton Rouge Gallery, a BREC facility at 1515 Dalrymple Drive, is now accepting photography submissions for the juried exhibit “Picture Your Park.”
Visitors to City-Brooks Park should capture a photographic image of the BREC park setting.
Located on 154 acres in the southwestern part of East Baton Rouge Parish near LSU, City-Brooks Park encompasses a playground, picnic areas, a recreation center, outdoor basketball courts, a tennis center, baseball fields, soccer fields, the golf course, dog park, croquet court, walking paths, a walking loop and a fishing lake.
Photos of people, animals, the landscape and architecture, or in any of the areas of the park are requested.
Baton Rouge Gallery invites photographers working in all mediums, styles and schools of thought to participate.
Artists must be 17 years of age or older and may be amateur or professional artists. Any photographic process is acceptable as long as it is original work. Cash prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place.
Submissions are preferably accepted via the online process at Entrythingy.com. Mailed submissions also will be accepted. All submissions must be received at the gallery by midnight Tuesday, Feb. 17.
Entry fee is $10.
No more than one work may be submitted to be considered for the exhibition. Chosen work should be presented either matted or framed and ready for hanging.
Final work should be no smaller than 11-by-14 inches, including the frame. The physical application and submission materials become property of BREC and the Baton Rouge Gallery upon receipt.
