Open Call for Bike Portraits (Deadline 2/28)

Bicycle Utopia, a transmedia project dedicated to the culture of urban cycling, launched an open call for photography and “photography-based art” on the theme of “complete streets and bike safety.” We have no idea what “complete streets” means so interpret freely…but the bike part seems relatively clear.

The show, titled “Am I Invisible? A Portrait of New York City Bicyclists” will celebrate the diversity and unique style of the city’s two-wheeled riders, while “subtly” advocating for safe streets. So consider including helmets.

The deadline to submit is 2/28 and a portion of the submission fee (a wee bit steep at $30) will be donated to Recycle-A-Bicycle, which we presume does just that, by helping youths and such.

The five best images will be awarded a $200 gift certificate to redeem in participating bike shops and the final exhibition will be held on in April at the Old Stone House and Washington Park in South Brooklyn.

Submit here. God speed!

Indie Film Needs Your Song

Bingo Night, currently in post-production, is an indie film about a retiree who, on the brink of eviction, devises a plan to rob her local bingo hall (and recruits her elderly friends to help). 

The filmmakers are hosting an open call for a song to feature during the movie’s heist scene, which we can only assume will be action-packed and granny-filled.

Submissions should be made by 10/13 to BingNightFilm [at] gmail [dot] com, with “Heist Song” in the subject line. Updates will be announced via the film’s facebook page.

For more info about the film, check it out on IMDB and Kickstarter.

There is never a better time than now, but the moving target of “in the moment” is ever elusive. We are often told to “let go of the past” and “stop worrying about the future.” At the same time we are told that “patience is a virtue “and that we must wait for the “right time.” Continue reading
