In 1885, a 19-year-old Vermont farmer named Wilson A. Bentley took what are generally considered to be the first photographs of snowflakes ever made. Since then, photographers around the world have been capturing snow, whether it be for scientific or artistic purposes. A winter scene can be serene or frightening, depending on who’s behind the lens, and for our next group show, we’re inviting you to submit your photographs of snow.

This online group show will be curated by Alison Zavos, Editor-in-Chief at Feature Shoot. To submit, email up to five images (620 pixels wide on the shortest side, saved for web, no borders or watermarks) titled with your name and the number of the image (ex: yourname_01.jpg) to fsgroupshow (at) gmail (dot) com with “Snow” in the subject line. Please include your full name, website and image captions within the body of the email.

You may also submit via Instagram simply by following @featureshoot and posting your images using the hashtag #featureshootsnow. Selected images will be featured on our Instagram throughout the duration of the judging process.

This show is supported by Squarespace, the intuitive website publishing platform that makes it simple for photographers to build creative and professional sites with their combo of award-winning designs, hosting, domains, and commerce. Selected photos will run on the Feature Shoot website and be promoted through our social media channels. Copyright remains with the photographer.

The deadline for submissions is December 20th, 2016.
