Luminosity: The Impact Of Light (New York City, NY) – Call For Artists

The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Luminosity: The Impact of Light. Light and its quality is the basic element of photography. There is an iconic photograph of Grand Central Station with streams of sunlight filling the airspace as it reflects off dust particles in the air. In photography, the same subject, nothing more than a snapshot at one time of day, becomes an impactful image of another. Sunsets are beautiful and midday sun is harsh. A strategically placed light can create amazing portraits. Late afternoon is a world of shadow and light warms everything it touches.

The total prizes for Luminosity is $4000. There is a grand prize, three first prizes, three second prizes, three third prizes, 20 juror’s selections, and 20 honorable mentions.  Each of the first 25 winners have an opportunity to exhibit in a New York City gallery, the Jadite Gallery in Hell’s Kitchen.

The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for From A Seed: A World Of Botanicals. Growing up in NYC, photographers Maddi Ring and Patricia Gilman had the opportunity to experience the wonderful world of botanicals at the New York and Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. They had the opportunity to develop an early appreciation for the variety of life that starts with a seed, much of it in spectacular greenery and flowers bursting with color.

Though seeds can be tiny and come in an envelope at the nursery, large and found in the center of a fruit, or black and found in a watermelon; they all hold the promise to become glorious botanicals.

With spring approaching in the northern hemisphere and autumn in the southern, capture your unique view of favorite flowers, trees in bloom, variegated leaf patterns, and vines in gardens, at the beach, on your window sill, or in the rain forest.

Reclaim Award 2020 (Cologne, Germany) – Call For Artists

Reclaim Award 2020 (Cologne, Germany) – Call For Artists

The Reclaim Kollektiv announces a call for artists for the Reclaim Award 2020. Ads out, art in! Reclaim your place in public space. Billboards become cultural conceptual surfaces, artistic canvases, or photographic landscapes. The city a public museum. Reclaim replaces advertising on large surfaces with your art. With the award, make a contribution towards culturally enhancing the public space. Make Cologne’s urban profile more attractive. Display billboards that stimulate, illustrate diversity and difference, and open up conceptual spaces. Easily perceivable, public, and for everyone!

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 26 Apr 2020

Entry fee: 1 entry: 25€ / 2 entries: 40€ / 3 entries: 50€.

Where usually cruises, cars, or detergents find large places to shine, there will now be art. 40 billboards become exhibition surfaces.

This year, the Reclaim Kollektiv holds the second Reclaim Award in Cologne. For the debut in 2019, 551 artists from 29 countries applied to redesign 25 billboards in urban areas of Cologne. Since this went beyond any intended scope, there will be already 40 large-scale billboards to show art in 2020.

Reclaim grows. A plus of 15 surfaces means even more radiance for the artpieces, even more visibility for the artists. The stage is ready, Cologne as public museum. Perception in public space is the highest: large-scale billboards on bustling streets, busy train stations, and in urban, alternative neighbourhoods of Cologne.

The winners will exhibit their works in the form of 18/1 posters on billboards rented in a central location, for the duration of 10 days. Artists from all fields and all countries are welcome to participate in the competition.

About Reclaim Kollektiv

The Reclaim Kollektiv consists of three business partners and friends. Odo Hans is a freelance artist and initiator of the Reclaim Award. Together with Tobias Handorf and Caspar Wündrich, managers of the design studio neoactio in Cologne, they founded the Kollektiv in 2019.

Last years’ debut was a great success for the trio. 551 applicants liked the idea and shared the vision. This years’ Reclaim Award grew by 15 surfaces.

‘I am so grateful to the folks at The Moth for awarding me this prize. I think getting out of New York for a bit will be healthy. It will be an amazing and much-needed time to regroup, reflect on my work and tinker with some new ideas.’ Bradley Wood

‘A lot of credit should go to The Moth, always wonderfully idiosyncratic and beautifully designed, for launching the prize and responding to figurative painting, largely ignored by the contemporary art scene. We have nothing like it in the UK.’ David Piddock

The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Decay Corrosion Rust 2020. There are new shiny things all around us.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 8 Mar 2020

Consider the amazing textures and colors in an abandoned, dilapidated factory, the rust on an old bike, contrasting plaster and lathing on a corroded wall, and the myriad of possible captures in a junkyard. Neighborhoods, disparagingly called “run down,” are treasure troves of “decayed” tumble down houses, “corroded” discarded toys, “rusted” cars, and trash cans.

Entries for Decay Corrosion Rust 2020 can take many forms – black and white, color, and abstract. All photographic media are welcome.
