The Olympics of People Watching is a participatory photography show where everybody plays artist, judge, spectator, or all of the above. A competitive exhibit with a sole victor, but all entries will be viewed by curators, bloggers, fellow artists, and Mission passers-by.
The contest exists in two phases. Phase 1 is a two-week period wherein everybody is invited to stop by MCCLA during gallery hours (10am-4pm, Tue-Sat) as well as during the opening reception (December 8th) and post up to ten (10) photographic portraits.
From these entrants, local luminaries of the photography, style, and blogging worlds will select seven semi-finalists. Semi-finalists will have two weeks to produce five more portraits for the show’s closing.
At the closing of the show, semi-finalists will be judged by the general public who can vote for their favorite portraits and crown the Gold Medalist of People Watching.
