In Transit Contest

In Transit – Photo Contest
Website: http://www.kiernangallery.com

Eligibility: Worldwide, 18+
Entry Fee: $25 for images
Journeys are photographed out of windows of speeding vehicles; blurred, voyeuristic, and fleeting. The vehicles themselves are cultural icons and status symbols: sailboats, muscle cars, Harley-Davidsons, and fixed gear bicycles. For In Transit, The Kiernan Gallery seeks images from and of the vehicles that move us.

Awards:
For this exhibition, juror Jock Montgomery will select up to 30 images for display in the main gallery, and up to an additional 40 to be included in the online gallery. All images will be reproduced in an exhibition catalogue available for purchase. A Juror’s Choice and Director’s Choice will also be announced and both winners will receive a free copy of the exhibition catalogue.
Copyright and usage: Artists retain full rights to their work. The Kiernan Gallery requests use of selected images for the purpose of marketing the exhibition and subsequent display as thumbnails on this website.
Deadline: October 26, 2012






Whether by road, sea, rail, air, or other means, vehicles are both essential and ubiquitous in our daily lives. Photographers have documented transportation history, as NASA launched rockets, Ford assembled cars, and the Wright brothers took flight. As modes of transportation, photographers observe the intersections of cultures on public transit and the isolation of solitary commuters on the highway. Modes of transit spawn communities, and photographers have documented biker gangs and houseboats.
