Tamástslikt Cultural Institute is inviting the public to submit photos of the 2010 Pendleton Round-Up in order to create a community-based multimedia exposition. 

A maximum of three digital photos will be accepted by each person. The deadline to submit images is Dec. 15.

Attendees, participants and fans who celebrated the Centennial Pendleton Round-Up will help create a digital photo album of the event, which will result in an electronic slide show, complete with a locally-produced soundtrack. The multi-media presentation will be shown in the Tamástslikt theater on Jan. 13, 2011.

“It was quite a time of anticipation awaiting the 100th-year anniversary Round-Up,” said Bobbie Conner, director. “Even the horses and dogs were excited about being there.”

Conner is certain people captured memorable moments they’d like to share. 

“Let’s have fun with it. Because the Round-Up has always meant the coming together of the tribal and general community, we’re interested in closing the season with a big photo blast,” she said.

 Organizers are hoping for everything from the rodeo to the teepee village, the activities in the park to the carnival, the Main Street festivities and parades to behind-the-scenes moments. 

The photos should be personal in showing family and friends celebrating the culture of the famous Round-Up and the tribal component that makes it unique, Conner added. Photos determined to be distasteful, violent, generally offensive in nature or promoting commercial ventures will not be accepted. 

 The photos must be sent electronically to randall.melton@tamastslikt.org. Submission of photos will be deemed as permission by the sender for their inclusion in the slideshow and a waiver of rights to any compensation, acknowledgement, or privileges thereof. The lender retains ownership of the digital photos lent to Tamástslikt Cultural Institute in the course of this one-time usage transaction.

 For more information, contact Tamástslikt Cultural Institute at 541-966-9748 or go to www.tamastslikt.org.
