Photo call for entries, theme: Celebration!


Announcing the newest addition to Lens Culture magazine!

Starting in 2010, every edition of Lens Culture will feature a special section of single images or short series submitted by our readers that perfectly encapsulate a changing theme.

The theme for the first new edition is Celebration!

We’re looking for images that show celebration in all its forms: intimate, grand, impromptu, public, private, exuberant, quiet, personal, traditional or bizarre. These could be festive celebrations, or sports events, birthday parties, sacred, profane, or … whatever! Your interpretation of “celebration” can and should be wide open.

The submissions deadline for the Celebration! theme is January 15, 2010 at midnight Pacific Time.

Submit one to five images at our online submissions portal:

You will be asked to set up an account, and to pay a $35 fee to cover our administrative costs. The editors of Lens Culture will review all entries and make the final selections for publication in Lens Culture. All selected images will include a link to the winners’ websites or blogs.

Thanks for participating, and cheers!
