  • Carolyn Pittman chose The Butterfly Effect to support the theme “Leading Women Educators Impacting Education Worldwide.” During this biennium, the DKG Butterfly Effect has touched all the DKG nooks and crannies, renewing energy and enticing our DKG sisters to explore new ideas as well. Each DKG sister has put her own spin on The Butterfly Effect concept, interpreting it in broad and varied ways. The same wide-ranging interpretations will be employed in accepting all categories of works submitted to the Gallery. Although not required, submissions may be accompanied by a written rationale as an aid to jurying.

(See “Description of category, guidelines for content and preparation” on the “Submission Procedures” document. Some categories require more than one photo angle per submission).
