Re: Call for Entries
The language in the requirements is prompting one to think about and question norms and beliefs associated with photography as documentation (a subject near and dear to me personally). Being set in one's beliefs is fine, but stagnates learning, potential, and new ideas, which art and culture needs to move forward and thrive, IMO.
Besides, why on earth would we want to discourage people from posting any reputable Calls for Entry to the list?

Huh?!? It *sounds* like English.... Does photo discourse on most campuses resemble this?? If so, things are worse than I'd feared. It's disturbing to think students might be able to translate this babble. Or, write a paper about it. But, hey - what do I know?!?
