Call for Entry – Landscape and the Built Environment

Landscape and the Built Environment

Benefiting Flashes of Hope - Texas Children’s Chapter

Deadline: October 30, 2013, 11:00 pm

***The call for entry is now closed.  Thank you to all of the artist who contributed their art in support of Flashes of Hope.  We look forward to seeing you at the Artist’s Opening on November 13th.****

Landscape and the Built Environment:  Where we live, work, visit and where we dream.  The landscape envelops us and surrounds us.  What relationship do we bring to our surroundings and what impact does what we see and live with have on us.  The setting can be beautiful, transporting and aspirational.  Or perhaps mundane, specific, and part of our routines.

15 – 20 landscape photography images will be selected for display at Salento Café and Bistro from November 13 through December 14th.  All selected work will be available for purchase (with a portion of proceeds benefiting Flashes of Hope and the remaining going to the artist) and will be featured in an online gallery via  Accepted work should be framed in a neutral gallery frame (white, black, grey, natural) or mounted with a maximum outer size of 24 x 30in.

Submission Fee of $25 for a portfolio of three images to be reviewed will directly support the Flashes of Hope – Texas Children’s Hospital Chapter.

About Flashes of Hope:

Flashes of Hope raises funds to accelerate a cure for children’s cancer while honoring the unique life and memories of every child fighting cancer. Founded in 2001 by the parents of a child with cancer, it is a volunteer driven organization solely focused on children’s cancer. With chapters in 55 cities, we photograph more than 50% of the children annually diagnosed in the United States.

Since founding in 2001, Flashes of Hope has photographed 31,915 children at hospitals and camps across the United States. They began funding research in 2009 and have already raised millions of dollars through our Kick-program and other initiatives.

Flashes of Hope honors the courage of children with cancer; captures a moment in time and funds research so they will have the chance to create a lifetime of memories.
