you see beautiful things around the community and are tempted to snap a photo?
Go for it and then submit it to the Skokie through the Lens Community
Photo Exhibit! It’s simple and doesn’t require an expensive professional-grade
camera - you can use your smart phone.
If you live, work or play in Skokie, this exhibit is a chance to celebrate the uniqueness of the community by capturing photos that reflect the colorful character of everyday life in the Village. Images can reflect anything seen throughout a year in Skokie from kids playing in the many beautiful parks, fall leaves at the sculpture park, spring flowers in a neighbor’s garden… let your creative energy flow.
This exhibition is for amateur photographers of all ages who live, work or play in Skokie. Phoneography/Instagram images are welcomed. Each individual may submit up to three images of approximately one to eight megabytes each. Label digital files as such: firstname_lastname_01, 02 or 03 and email them to email@example.com with the subject line “Skokie through the Lens Entry.” Please include the application form which can be found at www.skokie.org/FineArtsCommission.cfm. As the Fine Arts Commission wishes to capture images of Skokie throughout all four seasons, the deadline to submit photos is July 31, 2014; however, submissions are welcomed anytime until then. A slideshow of approved submitted images will be on display on the Village’s website at www. skokie.org throughout the year.
A panel will select the top three photos in two categories (student and adult) for special recognition. The panel will also select approximately 30 to 50 images to be exhibited in print format.
