Submission Requirements Rules on Content FAQ's

All artists between the ages 13-18 are invited to submit up to 5 photos to be chosen for display at Gallery Fourty Nine in Market Square for the “What are the Kids Even into These Days??”  Photography Show. 

There are some rules on content but in general we want to see work that is creative, intentional and thoughtful. There is no specific photographic medium or device that is required. Each artist is responsible for the cost of getting their own images printed, but there are no fees to submit your work.

  • Technical Information (for example: type of film, camera, ISO, aperture, shutter speed or etc.)(optional)

Rules on Content:  

  • Any submitted work deemed to promote overtly negative, illegal or socially unacceptable behaviours will not be accepted for print or display. For example, we don't want to see photos glorifying: bullying, self-harm/harm to others, hateful speech, underage nudity or criminal activity. 
  • For us, there is a difference between promoting and depicting real life experiences. We want to display content or subject matter that reflects perspective, creativity and developing expertise in a photographic light. 
  • Please get in touch if you have any questions about this. We are always happy to chat.
