Portrait of Sandy: Submissions Wanted

The Museum of the City of New York has opened a call for submissions for a unique Hurricane Sandy photography exhibition to open in April.

Said one Rockaway photographer, “We’ve all lived through this. Who could capture it better?”

As Sandy moved through the New York area on October 29, 2012, it altered the physical and psychological fabric of the city forever.

Now while recovery efforts are underway and the future is considered, the museum is assembling an exhibition of photographs of hard hit areas and people affected by the storm.

Images that portray the region before the storm, during the dramatic hours it made landfall, in the immediate aftermath, and also through the relief, recovery, and rebuilding efforts are open for submission.

Portraits of individuals, organizations and government agencies through the ‘before, during and after’ phases of the storm are also open for possible inclusion.

Amateur and professional photographers alike may submit images for consideration.

Up to 16 images will be accepted from each entrant. Submitted images should be at a resolution of 72 dpi jpg at 8x10”.

All files must be tagged with the title, date, photographer’s name, address, and email address. If it is not possible to tag the digital file, all information as well as general contact details, should be included in the body of the e-mail.

Some photographs may be considered for inclusion in the permanent collection.

Images may be submitted to: photographs@mcny.org (total e-mail file size can be no larger than 7MB)

Deadline for entries is 12:00 p.m., Sunday, March 3.

Photographers whose work has been selected for exhibition will be contacted by email by March 11.

The museum, founded in 1923, is located 1220 Fifth Avenue at 103rd Street.
