One – Call For Artists

One – Call For Artists

New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for One. Remember the Three Dog Night song, “One is the Loneliest Number?” But is it? In this call NYC4PA is looking for those images with a single compelling focal point. It could be a person or thing that is alone in the frame or an element of a large grouping that clearly stands out.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 14 Jan 2018

A lot filled with blue cars with a single bright red one would fit the bill, as would a portrait reminiscent of Andrew Wyeth’s “Christina’s World,” and the six foot tall teacher surrounded by his or her grade school class. Selective focus can isolate a single horse from the herd or a single pedestrian from the crowd on a city street. What about that basketball player leaping in the air for a dunk shot or the prematurely leafless tree amidst a forest of foliage?

The prizes total $3,000. There is a grand prize, three first prizes, three second prizes, three third prizes, fifteen juror’s selections, and twenty honorable mentions. Each of the first twenty-five winners have an opportunity to exhibit in a New York City gallery. NYC4PA uses Jadite Gallery in Hell’s Kitchen. The exhibit runs for two weeks. In addition, all forty-five winners are posted in a gallery on they NYC4PA website. Winning images are included in an exhibition gallery.

NYC4PA is one of the very few organizations that offer this to photographers. There are two live exhibits a year with the winners of two calls in each exhibit.
