Decay, Corrosion, Rust (Online Photography Competition) – Call For Artists

Decay, Corrosion, Rust (Online Photography Competition) – Call For Artists

Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Decay, Corrosion, Rust, an online photography competition.

“And behind door number 2. A brand new…” United States television prizes are all about the “new.” 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.

Consider the textures and colors in an abandoned, dilapidated factory or prison, rust on an old bike, contrasting plaster and lathing on a corroded wall, and 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.

Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Colors of the Commonplace, an online photography competition.

The word commonplace suggests things we see without really noticing them.

From A Seed: The World of Botanicals (Online Photography Competition) – Call For Artists

Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for From A Seed: The World of Botanicals, an online photography competition.

Both through world travel and exploring the neighborhoods we live in, we come across the vast variety of botanicals both indigenous to local areas and, with controlled climates, those native to far away places. We gain an appreciation for the variety of life that starts with a seed, whether it is the spectacular greenery of a forest or jungle, exciting beauty of flowers bursting with color, wonderful edibles like bright red tomatoes and pink blushed peaches, or textures and layers of botanicals in a black and white print.

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

Luminosity (Online Photography Competition) – Call For Artists

Luminosity (Online Photography Competition) – Call For Artists

Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Luminosity, an online photography competition.

Photography is all about light – its presence as well as its absence. 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. For photographers the time of day an image is captured can be as important as the selection of the subject itself. What may be nothing more than a snapshot at one time of day becomes an impactful image at another. Strategically placed lighting is critical in creating great portraits and late afternoon is a world of shadow and light that warms everything it touches.

For Luminosity, NYC4PA is looking for images where the presence, absence, and/or the location of light made the difference – glare, flare, shadow, fill light, lampshades aglow from an inside bulb, night lights in a city, and streaming rays of sunlight. There are examples everywhere. Show your shots where light is a key element. All 2D photos are accepted.

NYC4PA offers opportunities to participate in themed calls for photographers. Each call has a different theme and 50 images win. The prizes total $4000.

One (Online Photography Competition) – Call For Artists

One (Online Photography Competition) – Call For Artists

Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for One, an online photography competition.

“One singular sensation” – what a great song. This call is about images with a single compelling focal point. It could be a person or thing that is alone in the frame, an element of a large grouping that clearly stands out, a field of lilacs with a single bright red rose, a portrait reminiscent of Andrew Wyeth’s “Christina’s World”, or a single shell on a vast beach. Using selective focus you can isolate a single pedestrian from the crowd on a city street.

Water (Online Photography Competition) – Call For Artists

Water (Online Photography Competition) – Call For Artists

[Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Water, an online photography competition.

“Water under the bridge.” “Water water everywhere.” So many sayings and songs reference water. It is a critical concern in our environment and central to much of our lives. In addition, it is beautiful to photograph. This call is about how you, the photographer, capture water. Is it a thundering waterfall, glistening droplets from a puppy shaking itself off, a surfer caught in the curl, or a reflection in a city pond? Maybe you used a slow shutter to create the soft image of flowing water in a stream, teardrops, raindrops, dew drops, ice floes, waterfalls, rapids, or serene lakes. The list goes on. Black and white, color, abstract, and all 2D mediums are welcome.

Patterns And Shadows (Online Photography Competition) – Call For Artists

Patterns And Shadows (Online Photography Competition) – Call For Artists

[Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Patterns and Shadows, an online photography competition.

Walking anywhere in the world at different times of day you can see dramatic changes as the light goes from midday bright to dusk. Early morning/late afternoon light can transform a simple scene to one of great interest as shadows grow longer and shorter. Consider city streets with shadows of tall buildings crossing sidewalks, cars, busses, and people. Similarly, bright light casting shadows on a flight of stairs creates a canvas of black and white stripes. Just as powerful are shots where the impact of the image is derived from patterns in the composition such as the line-up of palm trees in the tropics with the shadows cast along a sandy beach. Different images and interesting interpretations of your own shadow are welcome as well. Be creative. Send your best.

Same But Different (Online Photography Competition) – Call For Artists

[Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Same But Different, an online photography competition.

For this call NYC4PA is challenging photographers to pair two photographs and submit them in diptych format (both images in one file). The images in each file will be “almost” the same but different enough to make each unique. You may have two versions of an image that you processed differently, or the same scene shot at different times of day. Have you taken two portraits of the same person with a feature or features that distinguish the images? The possibilities are endless. The room for interpretation and creativity equally vast.

[Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Black and White, an online photography competition.

Photography, in its infancy, was entirely about black and white or monochrome images. Color was an after print add on. NYC4PA is focusing on one of their favorite themes, celebrating those images central to the field of photography despite the introduction of color film and the vast array of image capture and post process adjustment software.

Enter your monochrome images where all the emotion, texture, and beauty are expressed in shades from white to dark. No matter if your original image was shot with tri x, a digital SLR, or your phone, if the end product is a terrific monochrome image (black and white or sepia), then it fits the call.
