Portland, OR–Lensbaby issued an open call to photographers for submissions of their best “See in a New Way” images. Lensbaby has teamed up with the prestigious Washington School of Photography (WSP) to curate a show displaying Lensbaby images from around the world, selected from this online call for submissions.
The company decided the theme of the show should be See in a New Way because that is, in fact, what a Lensbaby lens is designed to do. So Lensbaby is asking photographers to show how their Lensbaby lens has helped them see differently.
Up to 50 images may be chosen as part of the show at the WSP gallery in Rockville, Maryland, just outside of DC proper, with an opening reception on March 4, 2011.
Awards will include first, second and third places, and aside from the special recognition, the top three winners will receive Lensbaby Bucks: $300 for first place; $200 for second place; and $100 for third place.
Photographers may submit two images shot with any Lensbaby optic (double glass, single glass, plastic, pinhole/zone plate, fisheye or soft focus) via lensbaby.com/beseenindc. Electronic submissions will be accepted until 5 p.m., EST, December 30, 2010. The winning images will be announced on January 21, 2011. lensbaby.com
