If we have extra exhibit space, we will do a lottery to determine who can submit 2 prints. If you miss the April 1st deadline, contact us to find out if there is still space available and we will try to get one of your photos into the show.
All members are encouraged to sign up to bring a food contribution to the opening.
See details and rules below.

The exhibit and reception are on the 2nd floor outside the Mayor's office.
You must be a member in good standing to submit images to this show.
Your framed image or images should be brought to Newton City Hall on May 1st between 9:00 and 10:30am. If you are not able to make this time, please make arrangements with another NCC member to drop off your prints.
After the images are hung, we have an opening reception on March 8th which we hope all participants will attend. The rest of the club should also attend, along with the many people you invite. All attending club members (participants in particular) should bring a refreshment contribution for the reception. Please sign up to bring a refreshment.
At the end of the show, please pick up your prints or make arrangements for someone else to collect them between 9:00 and 10:30am on May 30th.
How to Sign Up
For this show, you need to SIGN UP by April 1st and indicate how many prints (1 or 2) you wish to exhibit.
After the April 1st deadline, you will be notified about the number of prints you will be able to hang in the show. At that time, you will need to provide the following information:
Name of each photo
Price (or NFS - not for sale)
Availability to help hang show on May 1st starting at 10:30am
All members participating in the show are encouraged to help hang. Training will be available for those who have never done it before.
Label your framed images!
Put your name, title and the price (or NFS..not for sale) on a label on the back of each framed work. If plexiglass is used, please also add a P to the label so we don’t try and clean them with Windex.

All frames are required to be sturdy and have a wire across the back. If the frame is not sturdy, your image will not be hung.
There are no size restrictions for this show.
There are no matte restrictions for this show.
Protect your images.
Glass or Plexiglas to protect your print is highly recommended but not mandatory. As above, if plexiglass is used, please add a P to the label. No plastic sheeting please.
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS please send us an email as far in advance of the show as possible and someone will be happy to help.
