Showcasing emerging artistic talent, as well as our fascinating local retail landscape, the 8th Annual Retail As Art photography competition is now accepting entries. Read on for the scoop on this unique scholarship opportunity:
Striking sights abound in the ever-evolving world of retail. From a quirky sign to a haunting window reflection to a cashier’s unforgettable smile, every shopping trip has the power to ignite a creative spark. The Retail As Art photography competition encourages Metroplex students to capture these inspiring everyday moments.
Founded in 2008, Retail As Art has expanded in size and prestige with each passing year. Now open to all Dallas-Fort Worth area high school students, entries are judged by an esteemed panel, including award-winning photojournalists and design experts. Finalists’ works are exhibited at a special awards reception at the Goss-Michael Foundation in the Dallas Design District, with three winners receiving monetary college scholarships.
Past winners, highlighted herein, have focused upon a wide range of subjects and settings. Only the imagination – and a few simple guidelines – limits the photographic possibilities.
Entries for the 2016 Retail As Art photography competition must be submitted by Sunday, March 6. All submissions must be 300 DPI or higher, and students may enter up to two photographs. Winners will be announced on Thursday, April 21. For complete contest rules and entry form, visit retailasart.com.
