Shawn Records, from Photolucida, sent me an email this morning to pass on to students. He said "make your students do this". I won't force anything on you here, but I can think of several good reasons to submit to this. 1) gives you experience of being on assignment, plus a chance to write a caption if you are so inclined. 2) solid group of jurors looking at your work. 3) it is free to submit. One aspect to consider is how you can Picture Black Friday in a smaller populated area. I would imagine that Black Friday looks much different in Bellevue Idaho (calling on you Jackson) than it does in New Jersey. The jurors might find it refreshing to see work that isn't just about people fighting for merchandise in Walmart.
