19th Annual Dahl Mountain Photo Competition & Exhibit
The RCAC is seeking submissions for the 19th Annual Dahl Mountain Photo Competition and Exhibit, a juried photography exhibition based on mountain culture. The exhibition will be on display in the Inez & Milton Shaver Gallery and Lobby Gallery at the Dahl Arts Center from February 24-April 15 during the Dahl Mountain Culture Festival.
Judges (professional photojournalists and regional artists) will select the show through a blind jury process in three exhibit categories:
*The first 40 youth entries will be free to youth artists (18 and under) thanks to a scholarship from the BHSU Photography program. Youth artists are allowed to enter up to 4 photos at no cost. Youth artists interested in submitting more than 4 photos will be charged $5 for each additional submission.
**For the purposes of this exhibit, an entrant qualifies for the "Experienced/Professional" category if the photographer markets their services or sells photography and can demonstrate existing website, business card, or other proof of photography sales. RCAC reserves the right to request proof of professional status.
RCAC Definition of Mountain Culture
Mountain culture is a lifestyle. It is the ideas, values and beliefs that are shared by people thriving in a robust environment, in or near mountainous terrain, i.e., the Black Hills of South Dakota. Your photography submissions for this show should reflect mountain lifestyle. The Badlands will be acceptable terrain in this exhibition.
We encourage you to be creative in your approach! Suggestions include alternative processes, abstract, macro or non-conventional images and viewpoints. Some examples of acceptable subject matter are outdoor adventure, mountain landscape, wildlife, people or sports.
