Just another cash grab 'gallery' event. Almost makes me want to open a gallery and start pulling the same scam myself.

Please do try to open a gallery and print, frame and exhibit over 100 photographers for 3 months on two contents, and publish a book with all the work. It would be great for the photographic community!

And if you can do it without charging a fee even better!
