I got one e-mail from a Steve Church (or Churchill) about this. I was wondering how many other folks he might have contacted. It's a steep fee, but on the upside, the juror... whose name I forget at the moment, is quite well respected as a curator, and the venue looks great.
I'd probably go for it if I were in southern California, but shipping a framed print across the country seems pricey... and with 9,000 entries the odds of jurying in are slim.
I'm sticking with some local juried shows.
