The Heartland Festival Orchestra is looking for images that capture the heart of the Heartland. The “Heartland Portraits” Project is an opportunity for the Peoria Camera Club and all photographers in the community to contribute images of the “prairie” that will be playing during a special concert to honor the beauty and life of our region.
As part of the tenth anniversary celebration, photographic representations of the prairieland and life in Illinois will be displayed in a digital dance on screens above the orchestra, choreographed to select movements of “Symphony to the Prairie Farm” by Steve Heitzeg.
Your work can be a part of creating a unique piece of live performance art. Be it a downtown Peoria panorama, a Starved Rock scene, or a Champaign snapshot. There’s no better time than right now, the beginning of the fall season, to get out and photograph the prairies of Central Illinois. Optionally, you may select images from your portfolio that meet the above criteria.
Deadline for submission of images is December 2nd, 2018 at midnight. Photographers retain sole ownership and unrestricted use of all photographs submitted.
