Now Artists Can Co-Opt High School Football Season to Great Effect

As good an excuse as any to put up a pic of Tim Riggins.

Like the book, movie and TV show Friday Night Lights? We sure do! And here’s a very cool call for submissions by the always-excellent Old Jail Art Center for original photography of Texas’ fevered high school football season.

Via the Old Jail:

“The Old Jail Art Center seeks modern photographs of Texas football.
We’re seeking both amateur and professional photography that tells the story of football through an artistic lens. (the action, the music, the food, the crowd…).”
The works will be juried by staff of the Old Jail, which will exhibit the works in September. Should make a good show.

We know Texas-based photog Nancy Newberry has done award-winning work around this subject. Let’s see who else wants to tackle (ba-da-ching!) this ever-loaded subject.

“Deliver submissions to the OJAC by
5:00 pm on September 10.
Your artwork must be ready to hang (matted or framed).
Please attach your name, title and date of work, and contact information to your submission.”
