08 Jun Volume 9 Edition 6 – Editorial
Five excellent reasons to be in Los Angeles from May 1st – 3rd
The world of photography will set its focus on Los Angeles May 1-3, 2015 for a weekend celebrating international photography and the most talented image-makers across various genres of the medium. Numerous high profile art fairs including Photo Independent, Photo Contemporary, Photobook Independent and Paris Photo Los Angeles will launch their annual editions in Hollywood with additional special photography exhibitions throughout Los Angeles. The weekend promises to offer the enthusiastic art patron a plethora of opportunities to experience photography at its highest caliber.
Silvershotz is proud to be the media partner for Photo Independent and of course will have a booth at the Raleigh studios – stage 8 #701. Make sure you drop by and say hello. We have produced a bumper edition featuring twelve of the photographers who are exhibiting, plus the f8 Collective and five book reviews.
Submit your work for publication
Silvershotz has evolved over a period of 15 years as an internationally respected contemporary photography journal. In that time frame we have printed and distributed 470,000 journals in 1400 bookstores in 17 countries. With our new APP for the iPad and browsers we will potentially reach many more in the next 15 years. Few journals have become such an icon in so many countries.
Read our guidelines http://www.silvershotz.com/index.php?sc=sm and submit work that may launch your career. The result is that we receive hundreds of submissions every month from most countries around the world. The selection process is based on technical excellence, a strong concept and a themed body of work that is consistent.
Best of both worlds- Digital and Print
Many of our loyal readers have lamented the loss of the printed journal. There is still something very special about print and many of you have requested we still do a printed edition. Silvershotz will produce a special Annual edition which will be a collector’s coffee table item you can purchase. Become involved in selecting the photographer’s who will feature in the Annual print edition.
On the top bar of each portfolio is a heart which represents a vote button. In each experience released, please vote for your favorite photographer by clicking on the heart icon. At the end of 12 months we count the votes and the top ten photographers as voted by you will feature in the special printed Annual.
Online digital delivery allows Silvershotz to retain its reputation for quality images and present so many more images than print. By continuing our policy of no advertising you have just quality images to view – and they do look stunning on large computer screens. In addition we embed links to videos on our featured photographer’s creative processes. In the future who knows what interactive systems we can add on, so stay tuned for an exciting journey.
