Last week I received information about the 3rd Annual 2011 Conejo Valley WIDE OPEN Juried Show for Photographers & Digital Artists to be held during the month of June at the Thousand Oaks Community Gallery in Newbury Park, CA. There are three categories: 1) PHOTOGRAPHY (Monochrome), 2) PHOTOGRAPHY (Color) and 3) PHOTOGRAPHY DERIVED/DIGITALLY CREATED ART . Artwork is entered digitally for jury review before prints are required. Entries fees vary based on submission date with submissions before February 28 receiving the lowest fees. For more information download the press release and application.
I participated in last years show where they awarded one ribbon for Best of Show, 1st Place, 2nd Place, and 3rd Place across all the categories plus several honorable mentions in each category. Roy Dunn won best of show, the Allen’s (Roy and Rachel) also placed. Many members of the Thousand Oaks Photo Group and Ventura County Camera Club won Honorable Mentions. I took an Honorable Mention for my Pink Flamingo image.
