2020 Hotel Preston – The Truth of the South

January-April 2021

Juror:  Jonathan Trundle, MTSU

Call for Entry: Mid June. Deadline: Late July.  Juror Review: Early August

Theme:  The Truth of the South

Photographs selected for this exhibit will reflect a range of experiences in the contemporary South.  While the images need to have been captured within the past 5 years, they may include references to earlier roots, to contemporary life, or to an anticipated future.  Fair game: 

  • people, landscapes, structures, still life; 
  • urban streets, rural scenes, life in the suburbs; 
  • abstracts, composites or straight photography; 
  • criticism, hope, nostalgia, issues, concerns.

The intention of this show is to present the South beyond the clichés, to celebrate what might be valued while acknowledging the multiple views held by long-standing residents as well as by more recent arrivals.
