SEEN 11 Photographer’s Showcase: On the evening of March 9th, we will hold a tournament style competitive photography event at Studio Altius, open to the public.  All photographers who enter SIX or MORE images into SEEN 11 will automatically be included in the Photographer’s Showcase.  Based on the judges results, we will seed everyone into the tournament brackets, using their best six images.  Each round of the bracket will feature head-to-head matchups where everyone in attendance will vote on their favorite images.  Each round, one photographer moves on in the tournament and one photographer is eliminated from the Showcase.  It’s the March Madness of Photography!  Categories do not matter in the Showcase.  Showcase results do not effect results of the SEEN judging or People’s Choice Awards.  It’s a night of fun that shouldn’t be missed!
