Slow Exposures Photographic Art Exhibition Issues Call For Entries
     It would take some time to list all the Cowetans who have won prizes during the past five years at the annual Slow Exposures Photographic Art Exhibition.  And Slow Exposures has excellent jurors and very high standards for even having an entry accepted, especially as the word has gotten out and submissions are coming in from all over the USA. Slow Exposures have also highly honored a particular Coweta photographer, Paul Conlan of Newnan, by placing him on their board and putting him in charge of their website last year.  Conlan has recently issued the Call For Entries for the 2008 Slow Exposures, which reads, verbatim, as follows:
