With the advent of selfie sticks, drones, and GoPros, not to mention countless apps to filter and edit photos on the go, there’s really no limit to what you can capture on camera. Sure, you’ve probably got Instagram-worthy pics galore from your vacations. But maybe you’ve also got some breathtaking shots from your travels that you want to share with the world on a more professional level.

Well, kid, here’s something for you: according to Greenpointers, Paper Magazine’s editorial director is curating a travel-themed art exhibition at a studio in Williamsburg! And it could feature you! Or your photos, anyway. 

The show, titled #WORKinPROGRESS, will be held on August 27 at ROOT Studios (131 N. 14th Street) in Williamsburg. It sounds like all you need in order to apply is a decent eye and a sizable portfolio of images. The submission guidelines do ask that you send in a website link, so if you don’t have one of those you might consider getting one. But hey, that’s as simple as throwing together a quick Flickr album or Tumblr profile.

Paper’s ED Mickey Boardman says composition, light, and the power of the captured moment are key factors in making a travel photo pop. He wants photos that make him “bitterly jealous,” Greenpointers reports.

So, you want to see your backpacking excursions and mountain climbs displayed in a gallery for all the world (er, borough) to enjoy? Simply send in 10 of your most impressive travel photos, your bio, and a link to your website to workinprogress[at] Submissions will be accepted through Wednesday, August 5.
