UPDATE: TIME CHANGE Photography Portfolio Walk!

Holy guacamole! Hey man, I can say that, it's summertime now! Which, of course, means all sorts of lovely walks. Speaking of which, how about a JUDGED PHOTO PORTFOLIO WALK!??

Thats right folks, IALS is teaming up with Filter Photo Festival again, along with the Logan Square Chamber of Arts to give you a chance to show off your best photographic projects, and win prizes! On Saturday, June 9th,  you can be one of 30 photographers who have RSVP'd for table space at the Hairpin Arts Center. For participating photographers, admission is $25 for 4 ft of table space, which you can register for here: http://photoreview.eventbrite.com/. All types of photographers are welcome to participate and prizes will be awarded. For the general public, the walk is free and open for viewing! It will last from 1:30-4:30 PM at the Hairpin Arts Center in Logan Square and will be followed by a casual reception until 6pm, featuring beer from our buddies at Revolution Brewing and snacks from Rewster’s CafĂ©. Seriously, how great is that? Tasty beer, mouthwatering photos (what?) and a chance to network and connect with the local photo community. And if that's not enough, theres a people's choice award!  Seriously, we've got the pulse on the teenage nation, dude. No no, f'real though, each of our judges will be awarding a prize to the strongest portfolios, and the public is invited to drop by, vote for their favorite portfolio, and see what’s happening in the Chicago photo scene!

I suppose, at this point, you may be interested in who our esteemed judges are. Say no mas!

Judges for the event are Christy Karpinski, Creator and Editor of F-Stop Magazine; Rose Licavoli, Assistant Director at Schneider Gallery: Contemporary Photography; and Gregory Harris, Assistant Curator at DePaul Art Museum. Prizes include (gasp!) a year-long membership to the Museum of Contemporary Art, passes to Filter Photo Festival’s events, and more!

Again, registered photographers will receive approximately 4 feet of table space. Photographers may show as many projects as they would like to the general public and each other, but only one portfolio may be presented to the judges. Also, participants must show all three judges the same portfolio. Photographers will be expected to arrive and setup their portfolios between 1-1:30 PM on June 9th.  Awards will be announced at 5PM!

And...to top it off....the four winning portfolios will receive a group exhibition at the Hairpin Arts Center! The exhibition will take place in late summer/early fall, with dates TBD!

Have questions? Email us at info@FilterFestival.com, where our team of trained circus chimps and seeing-eye dogs will be happy to help...or throw poop at you. They're really pretty temperamental.
