    Large Format Photographers and Cancer Benefit

    Greetings LF Photographers

    The 2008 date for the Raid Our Gallery Cancer Benefit for the Middlesex Hospital is finalized, Monday October 27th 2008.

    There will be slight variations on last years format in the hopes of making a terrific event even better for contributing photographers. The hospital is exploring possibilities to partner with Wesleyan University to host an exhibit of the submitted entries. As was the case last year, TV, radio and print coverage is planned.

    To refresh your memory as to how the event works. Each contributing LF photographers donates three different images. In exchange for your contribution you will receive one ticket whose matching number will be randomly drawn at which time you may choose which ever image from the remaining images you desire. You may do this in person or through proxy vote after viewing images on the NEFPC web site.

    Your images maybe output using traditional or digital processes. Each image must be film captured in 4x5 or larger film. Finished prints are mounted to outside dimensions of 14x18, 16x20 or 15x25.

    Deadline for submission is September 1st to accommodate possibility of University gallery show.

    To track updated information please visit the New England Large Format Photography Collective web site at http://www.nelfpc.com/ To view last year's Raid Our Gallery show please visit this link: http://photographs-johng.com/ROG2/

    Last year's show raised over $20,000.00 for the Middlesex Cancer Center, in 2008 we are aiming for $30,000.00+ Please join us again this year for a truly unique and rewarding opportunity to exhibit your LF photographs.

    Many thanks and warm regards, Steve Sherman

    I participated last year and it was a very good experience on all levels. You can count on me again this year!
    All you LF photogers, please consider joining in... it's a very good cause to support.

    I'm really hoping that I can do something this year. My great aunt and my mom's dad and my dad's mom have all had cancer. This would be a great opportunity to give back to a charity that I really believe in.

    I'm just getting started in large format, though. Is that okay?
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    As a participant last year, I can attest to not only the quality of the entries, but the sense of goodwill at raising money for a great cause. Hope to see many of you involved. Plus, I walked away with a great print!

    What do you do, auction off the prints? Is there also an event where you charge admission?

    I'd love to hear how you raise the money (so I can attempt something like it as well.)
    Thanks.

    The website explains how it all works. See Steve's original post.

    Of course I wouldn't miss this event for the world.
