LONG SHOT 2016
join the global movement!
June 18-19, Solstice Photothon Fundraiser
June 25, Exhibition Celebration Event
Photographic Center Northwest (PCNW) facilitates creation, conversations, and sharing of significant photography. LONG SHOT is Photographic Center Northwest’s annual summer fundraiser, celebrating photography and community. Long Shot kicks off with a global photo shoot on June 18 & 19 where people all around the globe unite and make photographs during the summer solstice weekend. Everyone who submits their photographs made during that weekend will have one image included in the slideshow and exhibition celebration event on Saturday, June 25 at PCNW. A $20 donation grants registration, image submission, and printing of one image. Consider forming a team, or rallying friends and family across the country to join in on this adventure, or to donate on your behalf!
How does Long Shot work?
$20 registers you for Long Shot. Registration grants your participation in the event, which includes image submission, your images reviewed by a panel of professionals, and one selected image printed on fine art paper and exhibited during the exhibition celebration on June 25.
2) Rally Others
Spread the word! Invite friends, co-workers or family to join your team by having them register online and join you as participants. Not in Washington? No problem. Anyone, anywhere in the world can participate on your team or as an individual participant for any length of time.
Support PCNW by asking friends and family to make a cash contribution to LONG SHOT on your behalf. Any amount counts, whether it’s $5 or $500. We rely on the support of our community for 30-40% of our budget in order to keep tuition and facilities access affordable, and our exhibitions free.
Join photographers across the globe in 24 hours of image-making worldwide. Shoot anywhere in the world, for any length of time with any type of camera, from Saturday, June 18 at noon to Sunday, June 19 at noon.
Submit up to 5 images taken during Long Shot. A panel of industry professionals review submissions and select one image from each participant. All selections will be featured in our online slideshow and printed at PCNW for the exhibition celebration. Deadline for online submissions is June 20, 6pm PST and 9pm PST for darkroom prints submissions. PCNW will have extended darkroom hours on Sunday, June 19 for film shooters to develop and print submissions.
Join us for a global celebration of Long Shot participants and their images. Enjoy music, drinks, dancing, and amazing artwork. The evening centers around a reverse auction, in which everyone has the opportunity to bid and take home images by local luminaries and up-and-coming photographers. Donate to PCNW that evening and go home with a unique Long Shot photograph! All are welcome to attend, whether you participated in Long Shot or not, on Saturday, June 25 from 6-9pm at PCNW.
