Survey About Internet Infringement

February 15th, 2017 Comments off

apa_washington_dc

American Photographic Artists Advocacy Call to Action

Survey about Internet Infringement

Why another survey?

Because the Copyright Office is asking questions and we have an incredible opportunity to provide valuable information about issues facing professional photographers.

Please participate.

This survey is being conducted by the Copyright Alliance.

APA is a member so if you are an APA member, you are part of the Copyright Alliance as well.

From the Copyright Alliance:

Over the last year, the Copyright Office has been conducting a study of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).  (The DMCA is a section of the copyright law that shields internet providers and websites from liability if they take down infringing material from their sites when notified by copyright holders).

The Copyright Alliance has been actively participating in this study to make sure that individual creators like yourself have a voice. 

Last year, APA created a survey to find out what creators’ experiences have been like using the DMCA.

The Copyright Office has request additional information, so we have created a second survey and we are again asking for your help in completing it.

Please complete the Copyright Alliance survey no later than February 17, 2017.

It should take you no longer than 15 minutes to complete.

We need your help to better understand how the DMCA works (and doesn’t) for the creative community and to let the government know so they can keep what works and fix what doesn’t.

Please help us advocate for you by completing the survey.

Enter the 11th Annual Exposed DC Photo Contest!

January 4th, 2017 Comments off

exposeddc

Exposed DC’s 2017 photo contest is open for entries! This March will be the 11th annual Exposed DC Photography Show, a celebration of living in the Washington, D.C. area. Do you want to see your images of the art, music, food, sports, culture, nostalgia, people and places of this incredible town we live in? The District is too often reduced to a tourist destination or a political mud-pit – but those who live, work, and love here can rise above. The Exposed DC exhibit shows the city only as you know it.

This contest is geared towards photographers who don’t usually exhibit their work, but it is open to all – send in your terrific iPhone shot, or your sharp Leica photo. If you simply love taking pictures, this is your contest. You can submit your work until January 11, 2017, so if you don’t think you have the perfect shot just yet, you have plenty of time to go out and get it! Need inspiration? Check out the winners from our 10th anniversary exhibit

Rules and guidelines for entering the contest and participating in our exhibit are covered in the submission page. Subscribe to our newsletter for all our contest and exhibit updates. If you’d like to volunteer for our team, please drop us a line.
