Deadline: October 20, 2014

Conceived and juried by Harvey Stein, Director of Photography, Umbrella Arts; photographer, educator, author, curator.
Seeking images of KIDS that are a bit unusual and out of the ordinary, not the conventionally cute and sentimental images that are often seen. The photographs can be amusing, interesting, sad, frank and biting. The tone can convey an appreciation for the joys and difficulties experienced by KIDS in the essentially absurd predicament of growing into an adult world. KIDS pictured in environments from home to zoo, from city streets to rural and suburban places, from the neighborhood to the ends of the earth, with or without their fellow man or KIDS are all sought. For more information and how to enter, click here.
