Palm Beach Photographic Centre’s 20th Annual MEMBERS’ JURIED EXHIBITION will showcase the work of its members, both inside the Photo Centre and on its Web site.
Among the 80 Photo Centre members that will be represented in the upcoming exhibition are several South Florida residents, including two from Palm Beach (Dragana Connaughton for Kilimanjaro at Sunset, and Sandra Pfeifer for Night of the Iguana); Chris Kalmbach from Hobe Sound for Blow Hole; Erika Masterson from Melbourne for Secret Garden; Emil J. Miller from Miramar for Breezy Hill Road – Upper Complex #1; and Andy Spilos from Lantana for Rosie.
This year’s MEMBERS’ JURIED EXHIBITION is being judged by Arnold Drapkin, who spent more than 40 years associated with Time Inc., including a decade as Picture Editor of Time Magazine, winning more than 200 awards for photographic excellence. Drapkin is the recipient of the National Press Photographers Association’s Sprague Lifetime Achievement Award and the FOTOfusion® Golden Career Award. He was Director of the Parsons School of Design International Photographic Workshop student exchange program for seven years, and the FOTOfusion® Festival from 1996 through 2009, and served as a Photo Manager for the 1996 Summer Olympics. Currently a photographic consultant, Drapkin served as Director of Photography for the 1989 Bush Inauguration and as Photographic Consultant for the Clinton and George W. Bush Inaugurals.
A Best of Show cash prize of $950 will be awarded, as will two Merit Awards for free tuition for a FOTOfusion Passport or a Master Workshop. This year’s winners will be announced at the exhibition’s opening reception on August 27.
In addition to the MEMBERS’ JURIED EXHIBITION, the Palm Beach Photographic Centre also will be presenting the FOTOcamp 2016 Exhibit, which will showcase impressive works by the emerging talent of young photographers who participated in this summer’s annual FOTOcamp program.
“Some of the kids participating in FOTOcamp this summer traveled here from all over to attend the camp,” says NeJame. “We had two sisters from the Ukraine this year, and a repeat student from Morocco. Others come annually from around the U.S., including Connecticut, California and Massachusetts, as well as from all over the state of Florida.”
At the dual Opening Reception on August 26, the best student portfolio from FOTOcamp 2016 will win a DSLR camera.
