Greetings! We are thrilled to announce a very exciting initiative with the Sheraton Boston Hotel. On the evening of Friday, October 21, @SheratonBoston will be hosting an exclusive IGersBoston gallery event, featuring 120 stunning images of Boston and its surrounding neighborhoods, taken by you – our talented community. Light bites, comfortable gallery space, great atmosphere, cash bar with a signature cocktail and the best hospitality awaits us courtesy of the Sheraton Boston Hotel.
To ensure the best possible quality for the images, Canon USA and Hunts Photo & Video are sponsoring the event by providing the printing service in state-of-the-art, professional Canon photo printers and paper in 13″ x 19″ inch size. Additionally, Canon and Hunts will provide a Canon PIXMA Pro-100 Wireless Professional Inkjet Printer which will be raffled among all of the photographers whose work is selected for display in the gallery.
Our Media Partner for the event is FOX25 News through its FOX25 Cares Public Service program. Thanks to their partnership, this one-of-a-kind event, will receive television exposure and coverage in the channel.
But this event is much more than just an extraordinary gallery. It is a special occasion and opportunity to fulfill our commitment with the community by helping others. To accomplish this, we are asking our talented community members to submit their best pictures for consideration to be displayed in the gallery by using hashtag #IGersBoston_Gallery, #SheratonBoston and tagging both @IGersBoston and @SheratonBoston on their entries . If selected, you’ll be asked to allow the print out of your image(s) to be silent auctioned during the event. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to “Transition House,” a nonprofit organization working to prevent and end domestic violence in Massachusetts through education, outreach and intervention.
As the photographer, you retain the original image ownership and copyright. All you are contributing (in addition to the image) is the authorization to auction the actual print displayed at the gallery and agreeing that the entire sale amount will be donated to Transition House. By doing so, you are truly helping for a really good cause. Any remaining image prints not sold during the silent auction will be given to their respective authors if requested.
