Shots 96 (Call for Submissions)

In grad school I came across a unique magazine of eclectic photographs simply called "SHOTS." It's a quarterly periodical featuring black and white photography from ametures to professionals. The magazine struck me because its imagery seems to have a look and feel that parallels a great deal of the student work I see at school.

Each quarter SHOTS has a call for submissions to be featured in the coming issue. Typically there is a theme, but from time to time, it's open to any type of subject matter. There is a fee of $15 to non-subscribers to submit up to 12 images (8x10 prints or TIFF files), but it is free for those with a subscription (which is $25).

The next deadline for submissions is May 1 with no theme. I'm sending in 9 photographs to see what happens. Submitting work can be a humbling experience. I'll let you know how it turns out...if I make it in. Ha, ha!

It might be an interesting adventure to send in some work and see if your photographs might get published. It's pretty easy to do. For more info on submitting, click HERE. Remember, they must get your work by May 1. There's still plenty of time. Good luck!
