1650 Gallery is hosting the juried photography exhibition
Hit Me With Your Best Shot

This month at 1650 we venture into the heart and soul of what makes a great photograph as we pull down the guardrails and fences and let the true artist within you run wild. This month, there are no rules, there are no ranks and we pull no punches as 1650 opens it's juried competition to every photographer's own personal vision; a show comprised of each artist's best or favorite work. The rules are simple: there are no rules, there is no theme except that you enter whatever work you like. All photos don't fit neatly into pre-conceived categories, and this month we all have a chance to prove it. So get out your contact sheets and hard drives, fire up your Lightroom catalogs and make a pile of 5 or 10 of your favorite photos and SEND THEM IN! We don't care if they are of horses, oil derricks, or your Auntie Em! Rocks, bugs, sunsets? SEND 'EM IN!!! Forest fires, rain forests or an eclipse of the sun? SEND THEM IN!!! This month at 1650, we search for the personal best in the dusty back pages of photographers of all ages and areas -- amateur or pro, analog or digital, serious or on a lark; because we all have at least a few good shots inside us -- so hit us with your best shots!!

Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted photos to be included in the Hit Me With Your Best Shot group photography exhibition at 1650 Gallery in Los Angeles.

There is an entry fee of $35 for up to 5 images. Additional entries may be submitted for $5 each.

We offer free matting and framing for accepted photographs that fit our pre-cut mat sizes for the duration of the exhibition. We have a variety of frames and mats to choose from.

We will also print your photo for a nominal fee if you are accepted into the show and would prefer not to mail a print.

Selected artists may choose to offer their work for sale. The gallery retains 50% sales commission.

AWARDS: Best In Show, 2nd Place and 3rd Place will be awarded and posted online after the show opening. Award winning photos will be featured on the show page and Best In Show winners will have a small portfolio of their work (up to 10 images) featured in our 1650 Spotlight gallery of photographic excellence.

All Awards winners will also be featured in our 1650 Gallery newsletter, which is broadcast via email to our mailing list. Getting the word out about artists we're excited about helps you do more great work, helps us show more great work, and helps keep the often insular world of fine art photography more diverse and vibrant.
