Nikonians to exhibit at prestigious museum

Nikonians have been invited to participate as exhibitors in a worldwide photographic museum exhibition project at the prestigious Musée de l'Elysée, in Lausanne, Switzerland.

You won't need to begin a hectic framing and mounting session to get your work ready for the show, which opens February 8. Nor will you have to grab your passport and start booking airline flights. Of course all Nikonians who can visit the museum during the exhibition are cordially invited, and the good news for those of us who can't make the trip is we can still participate, by sending our work over the Internet.

This exhibition, with the theme "We are all photographers now" celebrates the changing scope of photography, which has changed dramatically in the past decade through advances in digital technology.

The Nikonians community has strived for the past six years to promote that same concept by helping to break down the walls between amateurs and professionals through a cordial and friendly exchange of information and advice.

According to the participation guidelines available on the exhibition's Web-site: "A hundred images every week will be chosen at random by a computer and printed on HP paper, so as to ensure the highest standards of archival quality. These pictures will then be shown as such for a full week before being replaced by the selection from the following week, and be subsequently archived in the permanent collection of the Musée de l'Elysée."

As a memento of your participation, if your submission was selected for showing, you will receive an email with a photo of it as displayed in the exhibition.

For those of you who find your work selected for exhibition we ask that you make sure you let us know the good news at our Nikonians Café Forum:
