Biddeford's celebrated wedding photographer Patricia Takacs (www.kivalophotography.com) took first place last year in the Maine Photography Show special theme category, Trees, with this image entitled "Lonesome." Look for "Lonesome" on all promotional materials for the 2014 Maine Photography Show. The 2014 Special Theme is flowers.

The ninth annual Maine Photography Show is calling for entries. The premier, juried gallery show of photography by Maine photographers is presented by Boothbay Region Art Foundation and opens for entries on Sunday, Dec. 1. Instructions for submissions are available now at http://www.mainephotographyshow.com.

Categories remain the same: color, black and white, student and special theme - this season's special theme: Flowers. The student category is judged separately. All category winners receive cash prizes sponsored by photography supporting businesses and friends.

The juror for MPS 2014 is the internationally acclaimed Canadian nature photographer, gardener and writer Freeman Patterson.

The subject of a 2003 segment of Canadian Television's "Recreating Eden" series, Patterson's near death experience and his return to health through his relationships with his friends and his gardens only bolstered his understanding of life's cycles and how subject matter and the person choosing the subject matter mix to celebrate the creative process.

Watching dancing flowers he dances his camera to capture, as he says on his website, "how a person relates to his or her total community/environment."

Opening his episode of "Recreating Eden" is this quote: "The primary responsibility of our lives is to be creative."

A popular workshop presenter and author whose publishing career began in the 1970s with the book "Photography for the Joy of It," Patterson has contributed to many magazines and his images have been exhibited throughout the world.

His story has also been featured on CBC television's Man Alive, Sunday Arts & Entertainment, and Adrienne Clarkson Presents.

He is currently being honored with a retrospective on his life's work at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. More information about Patterson can be found on his website http://www.freemanpattesron.com.

Submissions for the ninth annual Maine Photography Show will be accepted until midnight, Friday, Jan. 24, 2014.

The MPS 2014 exhibition takes place at the Boothbay Region Art Foundation gallery in downtown Boothbay Harbor from Saturday, April 12 to Friday, May 2, 2014. For more information, contact Bruce Burnham at 380-1863 or Boothbay Region Art Foundation at 633-2703 or visit http://www.mainephotographyshow.com.
