OPEN CALL - Small Town America
America's small towns are the true heart of America. Maybe it's a reminder of a simpler time that seems closer and closer to being lost to us. From middle American farms to coastal fishing villages and everywhere in between, these are the places where we were born, and where many of us still call home. Whether it's the aged architecture or the charm of the small communities, it can make for a beautiful subject or backdrop. This is your chance to document those small towns and have your photographs in an upcoming Wheeler Creek book focusing on any and all aspects of small town America.
All photographs must be original from the submitting photographer, and taken within the past 15 years. Of the total submissions from all entrants, up to 10 photographers will be selected as FEATURED PHOTOGRAPHERS and will have a multi-page special profile in the book. Wheeler Creek invites photographers working in all styles and schools of thought to participate. We will accept high resolution digital submissions only. All analog photographs must be transferred and submitted digitally.
