Summer in the City--Downtown: Be A Shutterbug!
Calling all photographers: photo shoot for beginning to professional photographers alike! Be a Shutterbug! invites you to gather downtown for an evening of photography with models, fire dancers, costumes and props. Models and dancers will be stationed at various places, changing locations and costumes throughout the event. Bring your camera to take photos or come and enjoy a summer evening downtown with photographers, models and live music! Lectures and classes will be offered throughout the week, as well as an opening artists' reception, sponsored by Eugene Storefront Art Project (ESAP). Be a Shutterbug! will incorporate local businesses and galleries to display photography. All participating photographers will have the opportunity to submit two photos for a 'People's Choice' award. The artists' reception will take place during the First Friday Artwalk on September 7 when the three cash prize winners will be announced. Additionally, the submitted photos will be projected in Kesey Square during the First Friday Artwalk on October 5. Cash prizes for 1st ($100), 2nd ($50), and 3rd ($25) place winners will be decided through jury selection.
