Capture Brooklyn Contest: Deadline August 29th

Capture Brooklyn, a new initiative by the New York Photo Festival, is a juried exhibition of contemporary photography that seeks to capture the spirit and essence of Brooklyn, and to showcase the vitality of photography happening in the hottest part of New York right now!

Drawn from submissions received online through August 29, 2010, 80 photographs will be selected and exhibited at The powerHouse Arena in Dumbo, Brooklyn. The show’s official opening will take place during this year’s Dumbo Arts Festival (September 24–26), an event that draws over 150,000 visitors over 3 days – and will remain open until October 15, 2010. In addition, all submissions received by August 29 will be showcased in a slideshow presentation at the powerHouse Arena during the show’s opening weekend.

It is our hope that Capture Brooklyn will not only serve to acknowledge and celebrate the fantastic photography happening in this borough, but also encourage and nurture the growth of Brooklyn’s artistic renaissance.
