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.

Deadline: 23 Jun 2020
For this call NYC4PA is looking for images where the presence, absence, and/or the location of light made the difference. Glare, flare, shadow, and fill light all work as do lampshades aglow from an inside bulb, night lights in a city, and streaming rays of sunlight on a floor or as seen passing through a dusty atmosphere.
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 exhibit runs for two weeks. In addition, all 50 winners are posted in a gallery on the New York Center for Photographic Art website and are included in an exhibition catalog. A professional photographer is the juror.
