For photographers, there are few richer targets than Downtown. Sure, there’s Uptown too, but THEN we’re in a metropolis, and of course THAT is fair game for this competition as well. Which is another way of saying, DOWNTOWN is a frame of mind. Be it the Bowery, or the Wharf, or Montmartre, or Chelsea. We’re not keeping score, nor will we ask for GPS coordinates.
Show us that hustle-bustle stew of simmering life, and sights, and smells, and head-buzzing reflections at busy intersections. Please give our viewers a sense of place, by including the human element, framed with distinguishing architecture and cityscapes that say–Downtown.
As is their custom, the MPLS Photo Center will be awarding Best of Show, 2nd Place, and 3rd Place; along with 3 Honorable Mentions. We will display COLOR and Black&White framed photographs from our finalists. So…hit the streets…and we’ll see you Downtown!
