Lensbaby Call for Image Submissions
There are so many great photographers from around the world using Lensbaby Creative Effects SLR lenses and accessories,” said Lensbaby President and Co-Founder Craig Strong. “We can’t wait to review all the photography from Lensbaby users that could be included in this wonderful new book.”
Photographers can submit two images for consideration via www.lensbaby.com/getpublished and can change their photo selection at any time during the submission period. Submissions will be accepted until 6pm, PST, December 31, 2009.
At least 12 photos from all the images submitted will be featured in the Lensbaby book. Popular voting on the www.lensbaby.com/getpublished photo submission microsite of Lensbaby.com will be used to decide one of the selected images. Entrants as well as members of the Lensbaby Studio Photography Forum on Lensbaby.com are eligible to vote. Corey Hilz and Craig Strong will choose the remaining images. If a photographer’s image is selected, it will be featured in this beautiful new book credited with the photographer’s name and they’ll receive a copy of the book. Selected images will be announced and displayed on the www.lensbaby.com/getpublished website on January 15, 2010.
