Yoshi's Sponsors National Photo Contest

Jazz photographers, from the amateur to the professional, are invited to participate in San Francisco’s Fillmore Heritage Center’s national photo contest. The center is currently being constructed and will be the new home of Yoshi’s San Francisco and will provide an interactive education in jazz.

The “Legends of Jazz” photo contest aims to correspond to the educational and artistic nature of the Fillmore Heritage Center. Entries should portray legendary jazz musicians, solo or in group configuration, and winning submissions will be enlarged and displayed on the exterior façade of the Center’s building. Entries may be either color or black and white and will be judged on quality and composition, and there is no cap on the number of entries that can be submitted.

The contest runs through April 30, to coincide with the Smithsonian’s “Jazz Appreciation Month,” which takes place throughout the month of April.

More information and entry forms are available at www.jazzheritagecenter.com and by calling (415) 255-7745.
