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.

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.

From A Seed: A World Of Botanicals (New York City, NY) – Call For Artists

The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for From A Seed: A World Of Botanicals. Growing up in NYC, photographers Maddi Ring and Patricia Gilman had the opportunity to experience the wonderful world of botanicals at the New York and Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. They had the opportunity to develop an early appreciation for the variety of life that starts with a seed, much of it in spectacular greenery and flowers bursting with color.

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.

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. There are references to trees all around us – in music, literature, and proverbs, but they are also an iconic visual.

Click here for the application / registration

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.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 1 Dec 2018

Lose prints, top mounted prints, prints on aluminum, canvas, or fabric are some of the options. Sculptural works and handmade books are welcome. Float frames are acceptable as are conventionally framed and/ or matted work so long as there is no glazing. This call is open to all forms of photography and all photo based work, alternative processes, and photo based printmaking.

The Naked Print Juror

Stephen Fisher, a master printmaker and professor at Rhode Island Collage. Stephan earned an M.F.A. in printmaking from Yale University and has spent the better part of the past 35 years teaching printmaking. In addition, Stephen is an accomplished artist with a unique application of glass plate printmaking as part of his practice.

Fisher’s work has been exhibited in a variety international venues and earned numerous awards in a wide range of competitions. His drawings and prints can be found in numerous public, corporate, and private collections. Public recognition of Fisher’s efforts include three Rhode Island State Council on the Arts Fellowships and a regional N.E.A. Fellowship.

Stephen has a fascination with the viscosity of light and the tactile, sensual quality of materials. Recognized for his hyper realistic drawings and prints he freely admits that on the most basic level all of his images are just so much dirt on paper. The tactile presence of material compulsively manipulated is perhaps the only real part of this realism.

The Naked Print Artist Benefits

This juried exhibition is your chance to show less conventional photo based work or experiment with new processes and materials. This is the opportunity you have been waiting for, a chance to exhibit work that may not conform to the framing or presentation restrictions of many galleries. There is $500 in prize money to be awarded by master printmaker Steven Fisher. $200 will be awarded for first place, $100 will be awarded for second place, and $50 for first third place. This is an incentive to try printing on aluminum, fabric, natural papers or any other less conventional surface. Challenge yourself to try something new.
