Feature Shoot is accepting submissions for its latest group show, and winners will have their work displayed at PIX 2015 - our interactive photo expo. The show centers on themes of 'vertical living,' and will be curated by Feature Shoot Editor-in-Chief and founder Alison Zavos. From Feature Shoot:

'With population growth and urbanization, mankind has substituted outward expansion for upward development. Vertical living, a phenomenon that encompasses high-rises, tower blocks, and skyscrapers, is changing how we inhabit the world, in both beneficial and unsettling ways. Is vertical living the solution to poverty, overpopulation, and environmental destruction, or is it the cause of greater pollution and unsustainable living conditions?'

In addition to being displayed at PIX, a live and live-streamed event in Seattle October 6&7, the winning entries will be showcased here and on Feature Shoot. Interested? You can submit up to five images via email (620 pixels shortest side, saved for web, without borders or watermarks) titled with your name and the number of the image (yourname_01.jpg for example). Send entries to this email address with 'Vertical Living' in the subject line. Your full name, website and image captions should be included in your email. Photos can also be submitted via Instagram using the hashtag #verticallivingfs.

The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, September 9, 2015.

For a limited time, PIX exhibition hall passes are being offered for free and VIP All-Access passes are $99. Registration is open now - get your tickets and we'll see you in October!
