Fotoseptiembre 2017 is right around the corner and Digital Pro Lab is once again hosting an open call for submissions.

To explore the connection between the arts of photography and poetry, husband and wife team photographer Scott Martin and San Antonio Poet Laureate Jenny Browne invite both aspiring and established artists to submit works of photography in response to this year’s theme, Time Capsule.

There is no cost to submit, and if selected, Digital Pro Lab will provide printing and mounting services at no cost to the artists.


A time capsule is traditionally a collection of objects and information gathered in an attempt to communicate with an imagined future; as such, good ones evoke the essence of a person, a place, or a particular moment in time. We like to imagine the questions the future might ask us in return: What does this say? About you? About the world? Why did you save it? How did it feel to be there? Digital Pro Lab invites you to submit images that respond to the metaphor of the photograph as a time capsule, capable of suggesting narrative both momentary and expansive.

Submissions must be representative of the exhibition theme, Time Capsule.
Artists are allowed to submit up to 3 images.

We encourage the submission of a full range of photographic styles within the scope of this year's theme. As we are a family-frequented establishment, however, and the final image selections will be displayed in our retail space, we ask that you take this into consideration when selecting your final image submissions.

Artists are required to submit the following in addition to images:

- Artist’s Statement
- Title of Work
- Year Created
- Statement about the photograph and its relation to the theme

Artists must be the sole copyright holder of the images being submitted.
Submissions will only be accepted through our online submission form. The Submission Form does have a ‘Save’ feature and can be completed over a period of time, if needed.
Files should be saved in JPG format, RGB mode, and use the sRGB Color Profile.

Current Digital Pro Lab employees are not eligible to participate.
Submission(s) must be received by no later than May 26th, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. CST.
Artists must agree to the Use of Image(s) Agreement.

For questions regarding submission requirements or about the exhibition, please contact Shelby Rocca at (210) 377-3686 or
