The Center for Photography at Madison (www.cpmad.org) is seeking photo submissions for use in the book Signs of Protest to be published this fall as part of PhotoMidwest 2012. The purpose of the book is to document the emotions and events of the historic protests that took place in Wisconsin starting in early 2011 and culminating in the June 5 recall elections.
Entry is open through June 28, with final selection of about 100 images by a panel of three jurors. Details and a link to the entry form are at www.PhotoMidwest.org.
Ranking among the most photographed rallies in Wisconsin history, CPM’s book “Signs of Protest: This is What Democracy Looks Like” captures this photographic spirit by seeking images representing all aspects of the protest events — both inside and outside the Capitol, and around the state. The images should convey the feeling and sense of all that was taking place.
Selected photos should cover the full range of opinions and emotions, both for and against the legislation, while also being compelling examples of the art of photography.
All entries must be filed online by June 28 through Juried Art Service. Go to www.PhotoMidwest.org for details and links.
Publication is scheduled for the final week of September.
