Photographer’s name and image title must be on the back of the submission

Photos will not be returned through mail by CHS. Photographer may pick up image at CHS within one week of the closing of the show, disposed of by CHS.

All entries must have the following information:
Photographer’s name:
Phone number
Title of photograph:
Date taken:
50 Word description of photograph:
50 word photographer’s bio:


1. Entries must be submitted by the photographer.
2. Entrant must obtain and have access to all necessary releases and holds CHS harmless against all claims and liabilities
3. A maximum of XXX entries may be submitted per entrant

CHS has the right to reproduce the image or use for publicity purposes to promote the show, crediting the photographer whenever possible.

CHS has sole discretion of hanging methods and presentation of work in the gallery space.
CHS reserves the right to change prizes and dates as a result of causes outside its control.

The decision of the judges is final.
