Here’s a call for entries for an upcoming show, “The Art of Photography” at the San Diego Art Institute. San Diego is a huge market with a thriving arts community. The show runs from September 29 through November 11, 2012. The deadline for submissions is this Monday, July 16th. iPhoneographers are welcome to submit.

Before posting this, I asked the producer of the show, Steven Churchill, how iPhoneography would be received. He responded,

“We are encouraging each photographer to submit images which are a unique expression of you, your vision, your creativity. No limits, no boxes you need to fit into. We love iPhone photography. So, the answer to your question is a definite “Yes.” iPhone photography will be accepted based on the quality of the piece.”

This is a high visibility, high profile show. Read on to learn more and for submission info. >>>

The Art of Photography Show is an established and critical force in the world of contemporary photography. Now in its 8th year, this well thought out international exhibition provides value to artists at every turn, from first-rate viewing in the judging process to publication opportunities, well-attended exhibitions and lectures, photo industry connections and substantial monetary awards.

We welcome submissions by any living photographer, young or old. The photographs do not have to be from a newly created body of work. We are looking for work that is important to the artist from any time in their career. Perhaps your most important work was created recently. Perhaps it was created decades ago. We want to show the work that you feel most strongly about.

Julian Cox is the esteemed judge for the Art of Photography Show 2012. Mr. Cox is the Founding Curator of Photography and Chief Curator at the de Young Museum in San Francisco. Most photographers feel that having their work exhibited in a museum is the ultimate goal. Yet, getting exposure to museum curators is normally very difficult. Our project provides that opportunity.
