OFF THE CLOCK is APA-LA’s eighth annual curated exhibit of inspired personal photography. Images will be chosen by one curator who will carefully select the top 100 images from the submissions. Give it your best shot! This year we are honored to welcome W.M. Hunt as our curator for Off The Clock.


All of the top Creatives in our region will receive special invitations, so this is a superb opportunity to show them your finest personal work. After the opening reception, the 100 selected framed images will rotate throughout multiple agencies summer 201. Agencies include Ignited, Saatchi & Saatchi Los Angeles, David & Goliath, and RPA. This gives your personal work exposure to creatives at the top advertising agencies in the US. We will also display the complete exhibition on our website for a full year, so your finest personal work will be available to thousands more clients. We’ve chosen a very large and wonderfully popular venue that will accommodate 100 framed prints, so your chances of participating in OFF THE CLOCK are truly excellent! You can online-enter as many JPEG images as you like. We’ve limited the number of accepted pieces from any one photographer to their top, as decided by the curator.


Creatives love to see pro photographers’ personal work, because it reveals their true photographic style, without anyone else’s influence or input. OFF THE CLOCK is easy to enter. No confusing categories. No series of images. No creation date restrictions. No vastly different size prints or frames. Only strong, original, creative, truly personal work gets accepted. Entries may be black and white, duotone, or color, and should be self-commissioned and must represent what you consider to be your finest personal work. There is no limitation on when your images were created. Alternative print processes (copper plate, tin type, etc) are acceptable; there will be an extra framing fee.
