Call for SNAP Submissions – 2018|Annual JCC Show

SNAP would like to invite each of you to submit entries for our annual JCC show, to be held at the Gordon Jewish Community Center ( on Percy Warner Blvd during the month of September. See more about eligibility below.  This has traditionally been the major exhibition for SNAP each year, so we want to encourage everyone to participate.


Theme: There is no “theme” for this show, but the JCC can reject photos with images of full frontal nudity, violent subject matter, and religious symbolism. They are looking for “family friendly” images. Past shows have highlighted a broad variety of subjects and styles. For this show, the juror will be looking for photography that might be called “straight photography,” shot more from the heart than from the head.


Juror:  The juror for this exhibit is Tamara Reynolds  (, whose work has been published in national magazines and advertising campaigns.  In 2017 she was awarded the MFA degree from Hartford University Photographic International Limited Residency Program.  Her series, Southern Route, has been featured on Lenscratch, Bitter Southerner, NYTimes Lens Blog and PBS News Hour, among other recognitions.  Tamara is one of the 50 artists included in the National Endowment for the Arts, and has a traveling exhibition opening in the fall of 2018 entitled Southbound and curated by Mark Sloan and Mark Long of Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art. Her most recent accolade is for “The Drake,” and she was recently awarded the prestigious 2018 Project Launch Grant.
