CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS – Superstorm Sandy Photography Exhibition
Museum of the City of New York
On October 29, 2012, Superstorm Sandy moved into the greater New York metropolitan area and altered the physical and psychological fabric of the region. As recovery efforts progress and the future of essential infrastructure, including waterfront repair, is considered, the Museum of the City of New York seeks contemporary photographs of the areas and people affected by the storm – photographs that portray the region before the storm, during the dramatic hours of the storm’s landfall, the immediate aftermath, and the relief, recovery, and rebuilding efforts of individuals, organizations, and government agencies – for consideration for inclusion in an exhibition at the Museum to open this fall.
After receiving overwhelming response to an initial call for submissions of images of Hurricane Sandy – thus far, more than 650 amateur and novice photographers from across the region have responded – the Museum is extending our outreach for submissions during a second open-call period to be held from July 1 to August 1, 2013.
New entries will be accepted between July 1st and midnight August 15, 2013. For full guidelines and to submit images, click here.
