Decay Corrosion Rust (Online Photography Exhibition) – Call For Artists

[Sponsored Listing] The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Decay, Corrosion, Rust. Consider the textures and colors in an abandoned, dilapidated factory or prison, 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. Decay, Corrosion, Rust can take many forms. Black and white, color, abstract, and all 2D photographic media are welcome.

“I got a brand new pair of roller of roller skates, you got a brand new key.” So sang Melanie. Though we often focus on the new and shiny there is amazing beauty in the decayed, corroded, and rusted. It can make images of those items so much more compelling and interesting.

There is a grand prize, 3 first prizes, 3 second prizes, 3 third prizes, 20 juror’s selections, and 20 honorable mentions.
