Otsego 2000 is seeking the perfect image for this year’s Glimmerglass Film Days poster. Professional and fine arts photographers are invited to submit a photograph that best conveys the Film Days 2018 theme, Passages. Films and events will explore passages of all kinds – physical, geographical, temporal, emotional, and spiritual – while continuing to emphasize the human relationship with the natural world. Glimmerglass Film Days, now in its sixth year, will be held November 8-12, 2018 in Cooperstown, NY. Film Days is a program of Otsego 2000, an environmental and preservation advocacy nonprofit. A cash prize will be awarded.
The jury for the competition includes Margaret Parsons, curator of Glimmerglass Film Days and founder and director of the film program at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC; Ellen Pope, executive director of Otsego 2000; Larry Bennett, public relations and creative services manager for Brewery Ommegang and board member of Otsego 2000; and Peg Odell, a communications professional who serves on the Film Days committee.
Submissions are limited to three color images per photographer. A vertical format is preferred. No photo collages or heavily edited photoshop images are wanted. All photographs must be approximately 8x10 and 300 dpi for jurying purposes, and must be submitted electronically (.jpg, .png, .pdf) along with a completed copy of this form to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight, March 16, 2018. In addition to being featured in the 2018 Glimmerglass Film Days poster, the winning photographer will receive a $250 cash prize and special recognition in the Film Days program. Photographers will retain all rights to any photograph submitted but will grant Otsego 2000 the royalty-free, non-exclusive right to use the winning photograph in its 2018 Film Days poster and print and online communications.
A high resolution digital file will be required if the photograph is selected. Photographers will retain all rights to any photograph submitted but will grant Otsego 2000 the royalty-free, non-exclusive right to use the winning photograph in its 2018 Film Days poster and print and online communications and public relations materials, including display on Otsego 2000’s website, Glimmerglass Film Days’ website, and social media platforms; and allow the photograph to be used in news stories and publications promoting Film Days. Otsego 2000 will credit the photographer on all materials where the photograph appears.
