After a successful launch at Sotheby’s in NYC in 2018, MvVO is returning to the Oculus for a third time. Your art will be displayed on the monumental screens inside the Oculus.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline extended: 21 Mar 2021 – Applicant eligibility now includes those who work in advertising or marketing OR have a background as a commercial artist

MvVO ART creates opportunities for artists to get more exposure. Many artists have day jobs. They do not always have time to pursue opportunities even though they create art and are very talented. Through the AD art show, artists meet each other and feel they are part of a caring community.

MvVO ART created the AD Art Show to showcase artists who are not typically seen by the art world. MvVO ART bridges the gap of the art and ad work by bringing together very respected art professionals and collectors to review art. The Oculus is a landmark in NYC. The show is open to the public all of May.

Artists are featured in MvVO’s Artsy gallery. Artists are promoted after the show is over if they have interesting news. MvVO does not charge a commission on sales. The winner is honored with a Specialty Clio in Contemporary Art.

Abstract Photography Competition (Online)- Call For Artists

Abstract Photography Competition (Online)- Call For Artists

[Sponsored Listing] The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Abstract, an online photography competition. Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality, but instead use shapes, colors, forms, and gestural marks to achieve its effect.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 7 Mar 2021

The early days of photography centered on true to life imagery, i.e. family portraits, images of streets, towns, and mansions. Over time, photographers expanded their vision to more moody images, ultimately to where photography is today – an all encompassing art form generated by camera and lens and producing a vast sampling of imagery from reality to less recognizable abstracts.

This call is about the abstracts – those images that are not instantly identified as that person, that thing, and so forth. It doesn’t matter if you photograph something abstract or create the abstraction through photographic processes. Macro shots, close ups of graffiti, fanciful post processing manipulations, or just photographing something at an angle that disguises it. They all work. As with all NYC4PA calls all 2D photo mediums are welcome.

The prizes total $3000 and have a grand prize, 3 first prizes, 3 second prizes, 3 third prizes – 20 juror’s selections and 20 honorable mentions. All 50 winners are posted in a gallery on the NYC4PA website and included in an exhibition gallery. The call is open to any photographers worldwide and of any age, amateurs or professional. A professional photographer, gallery owner, or photography teacher is the juror.

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

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.

Click here for the application / registration

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.

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.
