Secondary Colors 2019 (New York City, NY) – Call For Artists

The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Secondary Colors 2019. Orange is red brought nearer to humanity by yellow. Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises. A garden of purple is always in bloom! NYC4PA Primary Colors calls for entry have been some of their favorite contests. Though red, yellow, and blue are, in fact, primary colors they are not the not the only important hues out there for the color photographer.

Deadline: 22 Sept 2019

Secondary colors: orange, green, and purple are as impactful and can be the foundation for equally compelling imagery. NYC4PA is looking for images in which one of these colors stands out as a critical element. It can be black and white with a single point of color; a green, orange, or purple monochrome; or any image where a secondary color stands out as a focal point. The possibilities in nature are endless with green leaves and lawns, orange bursts of autumn color and purple flowers, and magical purple hazes that can set off late afternoon scenes. Clothing, pumpkins, traffic lights, and automobiles, the list goes on and on.

Trees 2019 (New York, NY) – Call For Artists

Trees 2019 (New York, NY) – Call For Artists

The New York Center for Photographic Art announces a call for artists for Trees 2019. A tree grows in Brooklyn. Can’t see the forest for the trees. Tangerine trees and marmalade skies.

Deadline: 5 May 2019

Trees make up forests and jungles. They stand alone on hillsides creating lovely shadows. They can be tall and straight like or bend in the wind. Limbs and branches create wonderful patterns against the sky. A tree will shade a child on a hot day, provide a sturdy post to tie up the pet dog, hold a hammock off the ground, or support a backyard laundry line. Send images of trees as you experience them – forests, single trees, branches, and roots.

The total prizes for Trees 2019 is $3000. There is a grand prize, three first prizes, three second prizes, three third prizes, 15 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.

Momentum 2019 – Call For Artists

Momentum 2019 – Call For Artists

The New York Center for Photographic Art announces a call for artists for Momentum 2019. Though a photograph is a snapshot in time, the world around us is in constant motion.  This call is about how you capture the idea of motion/momentum in a single frame, photographs that send clearly a message to the viewer that the subject or the camera/lens is moving. Is the position of the subject the indication, a wave arched to crash, or a ballerina in mid air? Is it the subject or background blurred as a speeding train you have panned with background buildings a blur? This call is not about still life, landscape, or posed portrait images.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 17 Mar 2019

Examples for Momentum 2019 are everywhere including the silky vision of water over a waterfall taken at a slow shutter speed, water droplets frozen in time, trees bent in blowing wind, ripples of a boat’s wake, and fireworks. Sports, transportation, and animals each afford a huge number of possibilities and, of course, there are endless ways camera and zoom action can draw the viewers eye. This is an online gallery exhibition only.

Momentum 2019 Artist Benefits

The total prizes for Momentum 2019 is $4000. There is a grand prize, three first prizes, three second prizes, three third prizes, 15 juror’s selections, and 25 honorable mentions.  Each of the 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.

Portals – Call For Artists

Portals – Call For Artists

The New York Center for Photographic Art announces a call for artists for Portals. There was a popular and silly song in the 1950’s, “Close the Doors, They’re Coming in the Windows.” What about those doors, windows, arches, frames, and tunnels? There are so many ways to capture, look, and see through them. We can poke our hand out the window to test the weather. We can see a wonderful scene a little differently when framed by an arch or array of tree limbs in a park.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 4 Mar 2018

For this call, images can focus on the portal, like a closed door or a wonderful windowsill, or the view through the portal to the other side. Does it frame the main subject of the photograph or does it add another dimension such as the distortions of old glass or reflections in windowpanes?

The New York Center for Photographic Art will select up to fifty winning images for Portals. The prizes total $3,000 and offers 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. The New York Center for Photographic Art uses Jadite Gallery in Hell’s Kitchen. The exhibit runs for two weeks. In addition, all forty-five winning images will be posted in an online gallery and are included in an exhibition gallery.

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.
