OFF THE CLOCK is APA-LA’s sixth annual curated exhibit of inspired personal photography. Images will be chosen by one curator who will carefully select the top 100 images from the submissions. Give it your best shot! This year we are honored to welcome ELIZABETH AVEDON as our curator for Off The Clock.
ONE RECEPTION, MULTIPLE ADVERTISING AGENCIES, EXCEPTIONAL EXPOSURE
All of the top Creatives in our region will receive special invitations, so this is a superb opportunity to show them your finest personal work. After the opening reception the 100 selected framed images will rotate throughout multiple agencies summer 2017. This gives your personal work exposure to creatives at the top advertising agencies in the US. We will also display the complete exhibition on our website for a full year, so your finest personal work will be available to thousands more clients. We’ve chosen a very large and wonderfully popular venue that will accommodate 100 framed prints, so your chances of participating in OFF THE CLOCK are truly excellent! You can online-enter as many JPEG images as you like. We’ve limited the number of accepted pieces from any one photographer to their top six, as decided by the curator.
YOUR FINEST PERSONAL WORK
Creatives love to see pro photographers’ personal work, because it reveals their true photographic style, without anyone else’s influence or input. OFF THE CLOCK is easy to enter. No confusing categories. No series of images. No creation date restrictions. No vastly different size prints or frames. Only strong, original, creative, truly personal work gets accepted. Entries may be black and white, duotone, or color, and should be self-commissioned and must represent what you consider to be your finest personal work. There is no limitation on when your images were created. Alternative print processes (copper plate, tin type, etc) are acceptable; there will be an extra framing fee.

ONLY THE 100 ACCEPTED EXHIBITOR IMAGES NEED TO BE PRINTED & MATTED
All of the final accepted entries (as determined by our curator) must be printed as high quality single image prints, and must be window mat mounted on white, or off-white mat board with outer mat dimensions of 16 x 20 only. Floating mats are acceptable for an additional fee. Mattless, full frame images are also acceptable. Be sure to clearly print your last name on the back of the mat, and also on the mat back write “TOP” on the top for frame orientation. You will have nearly 2 weeks to print and mat your images & drop them off at the framer.
Your images will be custom framed under plexiglass in a very high quality Black Matte Finished Studio Stem Molding Wood Frame by Reclaimed Frame. Drop off your matted prints to APA before March 21st 2017. We again negotiated a non-profit volume discount so Framing Fees (including sales tax) are $55 for each 16 x 20 frame, which are due by 3/21. There is no APA frame markup, no hanging fees, and the framed piece is yours to keep. The pick up times for getting your framed art back will be emailed to Exhibitors at the end of the run of show. Any pieces not picked up by the final pick up deadline will not be stored by APA/LA.
