Photo by lumierefl

There is a  beautiful flowering tree in Los Angeles called the Jacaranda. These trees bloom spectacularly in May all over the city, so Good magazine is calling for readers to submit photos of their favorites. Find out more information here at “Project: Angelenos, Show Us Your Jacaranda Trees.” The resulting photos will be posted on the site’s Picture Show blog.

Get Money & Attention: Where to Enter Your Work

If your New Year’s resolution was to get some recognition for your work, here are three cool places to submit….

• The George Soros-backed Open Society Foundations has put out the call for the next Moving Walls exhibit. Open to established and emerging photographers, they are looking for work in 13 specific human rights and social justice categories, including the economic downturn in the US and mainstream media depictions of African American men and boys. Winners will be displayed in New York and Washington, DC, and the deadline is April 1. For more info on how to apply, go here.

•  The Pulitzer Center is looking for proposals on what they call “under-reported population issues.” The Center will be awarding grants for international travel in the range of $2,000 to $10,000, and even up to $20,000 depending on the project. Grants are available to journalists of all stripes and nationalities, including photographers. The deadline is rolling. See here for info on how to apply.

•  Slideluck Potshow is a quirky nonprofit that combines art and food. Based in New York City but operating in 40 cities in the US and abroad, the idea is that artists submit multi-media project (up to 5 minutes worth of images) and people bring home-cooked food and gather to watch the chosen slideshows. You might find yourself alongside world-renowned artists and unknowns alike. Find out about submissions here.

Cool Photography Round-Up

• Art director/designer Andrew Faris documented New York City, one Polaroid at a time. Even though the images are often of mundane things, it’s really well done and cool-looking, especially when seen all together. [Andrew Faris]

• 25 elite AP photographers are now available for children’s portraits, weddings, bar mitzvahs or other affairs. Not really…but they are available for hire to other media outlets, schedule permitting. [PDNPulse]

• Take a photo on Sunday, May 2 at 11 a.m. (EST) and send it into the New York Times’ Lens blog for their project  aiming to document “one moment in time across the world.” The photos will almost immediately appear on the web site and viewers can then scroll through them according to topic, country or whatever. [New York Times]

• On Greg Ceo’s blog he’s offering to send along your interesting photography projects to the editor at American Photo or feature them on his own blog’s “New Photographer Monday.” [Greg Ceo]

• And, similarly, on A Photo Editor’s blog, there’s a (different) photo editor looking for “projects related to the economy: foreclosure, stimulus construction, homelessness, unemployment.” Leave a comment or send links in an email. [A Photo Editor]
