A BIG Thank You

The Tucson 2010 Panoramic Photography Exhibition image submission period is over.

We would like to send a big thank you to each and everyone of you who submitted images for this event.
It turns out that we received more images than we can display, the response has been fantastic and we hope to be able to put up a great show.

In the next couple of days we will be selecting and organizing the material we have.
We will contact the photographers directly in case we need something specific from each participant.

See you in Tucson from April 14-18

Tucson 2010 Panoramic Photography Exhibition deadline

Tomorrow is the image submission deadline for the Tucson 2010 Panoramic Photography Exhibition.

To accommodate for different timezones around the world all submissions received until 2pm UTC next Monday March 29 will be considered.
After that we will begin sorting and organizing the exhibition and the deadline can't be extended beyond that point in time.

Some photographers asked if they could submit digital files instead of prints and the answer is YES, we made arrangements to print those files and ship them to Tucson in time for the exhibition.
