Get exhibited in the new CSI Library Gallery. Receive an exhibition print of your photograph and have your work added to the permanent collection.

In an era when the environs of U.S. cities and suburbs have become homogeneous, filled with chain stores and prefabricated housing, this contest asks participants to consider what makes Staten Island distinctive from other areas. Statements by each photographer presenting their view of what makes Staten Island unique and how their photograph captures that quality should accompany each photograph.

The entry deadline is Wednesday, Apr. 18, 2012 and winner notification will take place on Sunday, Apr. 22, 2012. The exhibition will open on Thursday, May 3.

This exhibition is sponsored by the Office of the Dean of Humanities and Social Sciences, the Office of the Dean of Science and Technology, and the College of Staten Island Archives & Special Collections.
