Subject: [Leica] PDN Curator show deadline extended.

The annual Curator Photo show of PDN just extended its submission deadline
to Apr. 7. If you live and/or work in New York and aspire to do commercial
or illustrative work this is a worthwhile show to be in. It is seen by a lot
of art directors and people with checkbooks. On the other hand, if you are a
photo journalist, a fine art photographer, or a street photographer,
fuggadaboudit (as they say in New Jersey).

For information go to:

The entry fee is $35 an image and you can submit as many as you want. The
fee is not high for artwork submission in the New York area, particularly if
prizes are offered. My wife routinely pays as much to enter paintings in
regional art shows. On the other hand it is just shy of being a confidence
racket. There are thousands of images entered and a mere pittance in prize
money. You actually have a better chance of winning the lottery than of
winning a prize in the PDN show. Still many of the pictures posted on the
LUG are as good as, or better than, the Curator show entries posted on their
web site.
