Last week, my professional printer (Oscar Medina of San Diego Photos and Prints) contacted me about a brand new service he’s offering to local artists. He’s put together a notification list for upcoming shows and juried competitions in the Southern California area — most specifically San Diego County.

This is an extremely valuable resource because the notifications are filtered by Oscar himself and they’re for REAL events — not just online stuff. Yes, that’s right… printing your photos and putting them up on a wall somewhere (gasp!). These types of shows and contests are sometimes difficult to find and keep track of, so the notification list provides us with a quick and easy method for it all. I, for one, plan on participating in several local events this year in attempts to better my photography.

I would 100% recommend this free service to all San Diego photographers, and I’d also recommend it to all other Southern California Photographers. Once you sign up (using the link below), you’ll start to receive email notifications of new events as Oscar posts them. You’ll also get access to an archive of previously posted events so you can see everything that is and was available. The notifications include the name of the event, a short description, and a link to the event website for further information.

And again, it’s FREE! So sign up and see if you find anything of interest.

I wish someone would do that where I live! I always find out about open calls after they close.

Thank you, Brian! Definitely nice to have that heads up here in San Diego. Makes it easier on those of us who’d like to try our hand at showing our work but have no idea where to start.
