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 (http://www.nashvillejcc.org/) 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. Continue reading
Update: submission deadline has been extended until Sunday at midnight.

For this show, “landmarks” can mean a prominent object or feature of a landscape or town, especially those that enable someone to establish their location – something perhaps iconic representing that place or neighborhood. Might include buildings, monuments or other structures; might be of cultural or historical significance. Or more broadly, might be something signifying an important stage or turning point or benchmark.
Juror: The juror for this exhibit is Emily Naff, an Associate Professor of Photography at Nashville State Community College, who has lead several Study Abroad Programs (e.g., the Netherlands, Italy, Brazil and Japan). Her work may be seen at https://www.emilynaff.com/index.
