Suffolk County Historical Society Call For EntriesThe Suffolk County Historical Society has announced a call for entries for a juried photography competition that will take place in connection with a new photography exhibition. The juried photography exhibition, entitled “Suffolk County’s Landmarks & Icons,” will open with a special reception on November 13, 2009, from 6-8pm, and will be on display at the Society (300 West Main St., Riverhead) through December 12, 2009. Jeff Schamberry, director of photography at Newsday, will serve as the competition’s juror, the winners of which will be announced at the opening reception.

The exhibition will consist of current photographic work, by contemporary photographers, that depicts Suffolk County’s landmarks and icons – both natural and man made – juxtaposed with a sampling of historical photographs from the Society’s collection.

The competition is open to all artists. All work must be framed, wired and ready to hang. Framed photos are not to exceed 16” x 24”. Entries without wire will not be accepted. Limit three works per artist; there is a $5 non-refundable fee for each work submitted. All work must be received at the Suffolk County Historical Society between November 3 - 6; 12:30 - 4:30 pm (labeled with artist name, address, phone, and title).

Suffolk County abounds with enduring sights and symbols that evoke individual responses and reflections. Whether famous and recognizable or humble and personal, Suffolk County’s special places can be transformed by events and memories. The Suffolk County Historical Society invites amateur and professional photographers to participate in this exhibit and competition by sharing their favorite images.
