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.
