LEC Through the Lens photo exhibition - call for submissions

Fine Arts,

Calling all Lake Erie College student and alumni photographers!

Do you have an image of campus or from your time at Lake Erie that captures your experience as a member of the LEC community? The National Alumni Board invites you to submit your photo to “LEC: Through The Lens,” a special photography exhibition that will display photos of what Lake Erie College means to the members of its community.

Current LEC students and alumni are invited to submit their own photos that capture their LEC experience, whether they be of buildings, people, events, games, Stormy, the equestrian center, or more. Photos may be vintage or more recent and can be taken on film or digitally produced – it is entirely up to you.

Students who submit photo entries will be eligible for a variety of prizes, including a $100 gift certificate for the photo judged “best photo” in respect to its composition, lighting, focus and impact. The photo judged “most LEC spirit” will receive a $50 gift certificate. A "Best Alumni Work" award will also be presented.

Those who wish to participate have until September 6, 2017 to select or take their photos. Submissions must be at least 8”x10” prints that are matted and ready to hang. All images must be properly matted in white or black. Minimum image size is 8"x10" (exluding matte); maximum work size is 16"x20" (including matte).

All work must be labeled with the following information attached to the back: title, name of artist, email, phone number, and address. Entries must be delivered to Nancy Prudic, professor of visual arts, between September 1-6, 2017. Professor Prudic's office is located in Royce Hall for the Fine and Performing Arts.

Those who wish to mail their entries may submit them to: 

Lake Erie College
Attn: Box 363
391 W. Washington Street
Painesville, Ohio 44077

The complete exhibition of “LEC: Through the Lens” will be on display from September 14 through October 20, 2017 in the B.K. Smith Gallery in Royce Hall for the Fine and Performing Arts.

Exhibition committee decisions will be final regarding accepted submissions and judging of winners. Judging will be handled by an alumni committee in collaboration with Professor Prudic.

More information regarding the September 14th opening reception, which will include refreshments and awards, will be announced closer to the exhibition’s start.
