Top 3 reasons the Spring 2014 call for entries is a month late. Or, why you should be in Baltimore on March 7th.

  1. I stumbled into a parallel universe and spent the last four weeks finding a way back.
  2. Gremlins in my computer had a month-long party and refused to post the call.
  3. What call for entries?

Actually, it was a deliberate choice to push this one back. Why, you ask? 

Three letters (or four words, if you prefer): SPE.

In case you haven't heard the news, we'll be giving a panel discussion at next week's national Society for Photographic Education conference. It's called Make, Stamp, Ship, Receive: Four Years with the Postcard Collective. We're scheduled for 1pm-2:45pm in Keys 3-4 on Friday; if you're attending the conference, come by and say "hello". We'll have lots of these fancy postcards (see below) for you to take home and/or send to friends colleagues, loved ones, or complete strangers.


Now, what does all this have to do with the call for entries? Upon examination of our annual schedule, you'll notice that the call for Spring exchange entries typically ends on March 1st. Since our SPE panel is scheduled for March 7th, the folks in the audience would have to wait until May to enter. I don't know about you, but I'd likely forget about my excitement over the course of two months. Put simply, we wanted to provide SPE conference goers the opportunity to be considered for participation in the Spring 2014 exchange.

The exchange will still happen on May 1st.
