    Ok so you get perhaps a thousand entries at 30 bucks a pop, totaling 30,000 dollars and you are going to award the winners a total of 500 bucks. Nice. Only 29,500 profit for hanging a show.

    Sweet.

    I don't think I will enter.

    Dennis, your math may be off a bit, but I get your point. They are more likely to get a couple hundred people entering...or maybe 300. So make that about $10,000 in fees. Minus $500 in awards (they could be far more generous!), advertising expenses, cost of the two openings (catering, set-up,etc), cost of employees putting up and taking down the show, cost of wall space for a month, the honorarium to Christopher James (including airfare and hotel costs...say a total of $3000, but this might be low), shipping costs (and the labor involved) of returning work to the artists , and whatever other expenses I have forgotten. If some pieces sell off the wall, there will be income from that -- for both artist and gallery -- but probably not a whole bunch.

    I would love to see higher awards and the shipping of accepted works covered by the gallery both ways. Your estimate of profit might be off by up to 90%.

    Having one's alt process prints judged for entry in digital form is frustrating. At least Christopher knows very well what these various process look like and what goes into making them. I am assuming that the awards will be judged in person.

    I am seriously considering entering.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    It's a cattle call but the draw is James' participation. What's $30 and why should we care if they gross a $1,000,000?

    Moooooo!

    In times of recession (or as Bush says, an economic slow-down) galleries will be struggling to keep their doors open. As a gallery owner (I own 1/33rd of a gallery as a member of an art cooperative) I wish the the Tilt Gallery well.

    I think James is savvy enough to make good calls looking at digital representation of the prints.

    The task of managing 1000s of prints could be very daunting. This show will probably have a lot of submitters.

    I know some galleries will occasionally request framed prints for submission before the judging which makes submitting more expensive. Personally I don't mind CD submissions as it saves wear and tear on my prints.

    Anyway it is what it is for better or worse. It provides an opportunity for unknowns to get some exposure of their work. What is especially nice is that the submissions are restricted to alt. processes only.

    Many not for profit galleries do these kind of exhibits to help raise needed funding, though it's not clear what the status of the Tilt Gallery is in that regard. It doesn't seem to be non/not for profit.
