3rd Annual Plastic Camera Show – The competition is open to artists working with plastic cameras with plastic lenses. The more obsolete, flawed, and lo-tech, the better. Images should be taken with cameras with limited controls, such as Diana, Holga, Lubitel, Lomo, Banner, and Ansco cameras. Beautiful prints from less-than-gorgeous cameras – that’s what we’re looking for! Click the link above to download the submission form and entry guidelines.
BAPC would not have existed were it not for Frank’s efforts in getting together a group of 16 dedicated photographers to set up a photogroup that also gives back to the community. Our founding members spent a year in setting up the legal structure as a nonprofit organization and working with the IRS and State Board over 10 years ago.
Traveling from Puerto Rico to New York and from Hartford to Hawaii, Frank Espada documented in loving portraits his countrymen and women engaged in ballet and theater, drug rehab and field work. Their faces are open, direct and trusting, presenting a nuanced take on complicated lives that are often led out of the spotlight.

The West Prize was launched in 2008 with the mission to find exciting new artists and adding them to the West Collection.
The West Prize will again award the 10 finalists $10,000 each to add their work to the West Collection. The application deadline is November 1, 2009 and artists must be 18 years or older and can live anywhere in the world.
Next deadline is January 2, 2010. This is an ongoing program with 3 residencies a year.
Our Residence Program was developed to continue our support and education of fine art photographers. Through the program, artists receive a $1250 credit and one free class, or $1500 credit and no class. The credit is only for use of the rentals and services at RayKo, it is not a cash stipend for the purchase of supplies. The residence does not include a housing, transportation or food stipend.
Small: We are using the term “small” in its broadest sense and encourage you to do the same. For example, a list of synonyms for “small” suggest numerous possible perspectives, including: compact; miniature; poky; cramped; petite; puny; stunted; minor; unimportant; trivial; insignificant; meager; insufficient; ashamed; modest; unpretentious; humble; and, believe it or not, underwear (“smalls” in Britain).
Deadline: All entries must be received at the gallery by September 30, 2009.
