MJR Showcase: Now Accepting Submissions

Published by MJR on July 10th, 2008 in MJR Showcase | 3 Comments »

So here’s the idea.

You have pictures, we have a blog. The future of photography is continually shifting and while things may seem foggy now, what we’re absolutely certain about here at MJR is that pictures should be first and foremost seen.

So we’ll be showcasing essays and series from emerging non-member photographers in all areas of the field, from photojournalism to fashion to travel and weddings. That likely means you.

Of course you retain all copyright. We’re not silly like some places.

First Showcase comes tomorrow. Good luck!


Here are the details:

- Brief synopsis of your career. Include contact info, age, website, email, etc.

- 12-15 images (captions in IPTC).

- Images dimensions must be 725 pixels wide at 72dpi and labeled “initials_mjr_showcase_00x” so they should read as “mja_mjr_showcase_001, mja_mjr_showcase_002″ etc.

Send all submissions to hello@wearemjr.com

    What is IPTC?

    IPTC is a set of metadata information that is included in the file of images (rather than a separate text document or similar module to correspond with each image. included in the IPTC is everything from date, city, photographer name and contact info, and caption for the image.

    a popular program, and one i vouch for, is PhotoMechanic (http://www.camerabits.com/site/index.html). relatively cheap and very useful for categorizing, editing for selects, organizing, IPTC, etc.
