CALL FOR ENTRIES
Combat Camera: The Women Behind the Lens exhibition is open to women in the military who have served their country by using photography to record all aspects of military life and service using their talent, sharp aim, and a camera. The exhibit will pair official photographs from the soldiers’ military experience (in any capacity, branch, or department) with images selected from their personal lives. By pairing official and civilian images, the exhibit will provide a unique perspective on the personal and professional intersections of women serving in our military. This exhibit will be displayed in conjunction with Fleet Week 2018 New Orleans as part of Tricentennial NOLA Navy Week and Tall Ships of America.
Combat Camera is sponsored by Tulane University’s School of Professional Advancement through the Departments of Emergency and Security Studies and the Department of Digital Design in partnership with the New Orleans Photo Alliance. Funding for exhibit printing and framing has been generously provided by the Tulane Provost’s office Lavin Bernick Faculty Grant. Our thanks to all branches of the U.S. Military for their support of the project.
Submissions for the exhibit will be open from January 8 through March 1, 2018 (11:59 PM Central Time). Any active or retired photographer working in any branch of the U.S. Military is eligible to apply.
