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

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. There is 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.

FlashPoint Photography Exhibition (Laguna Beach, CA) – Call For Artists

FlashPoint Photography Exhibition (Laguna Beach, CA) – Call For Artists

[Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] Las Laguna Art Gallery announces a call for artists working in all photographic mediums to submit images to be considered for the FlashPoint exhibition. The theme is open. Artwork can be in color or in black and white.

Enter by: 30 September 2023

All artists who submit artwork to FlashPoint will be accepted and have at least one of their submitted works posted and promoted on the gallery’s website and to their client list. A select number of artists will be chosen to send their work to the gallery for the in-person exhibition at a brick-and-mortar gallery in Laguna Beach, California.

About Las Laguna Art Gallery

Since 2013, Las Laguna Gallery has held open calls for art, calls for entry, and calls for art opportunities for artists to promote and sell their art in a gallery.

Quickly becoming one of the premier contemporary and fine art galleries in Laguna Beach, California; Las Laguna Gallery is dedicated to the exploration and engagement of contemporary and fine art visual culture – regionally, nationally, and internationally; through unique collaborations between artists, students, and the community.

Las Laguna Gallery is located on Pacific Coast Highway in Laguna Village. Laguna Village is an artist alcove on the cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. This location is a must stop location with artist galleries and jewelry shops. The location features a restaurant, bar, and there is live music in the fire-side theater Tuesday through Saturday.

Unlike other art galleries in Laguna Beach who only select local artists, Las Laguna Art Gallery chooses artists from around the globe.

With more than 100 art galleries and artist studios to explore, you’ll come to understand why Laguna Beach is a beloved “art colony.” In fact, the area was discovered by artists. In the late 1800s, visitors were making an annual pilgrimage through the canyons to camp at Laguna Beach each summer. By 1903, painters like Norman St Clair were visiting from San Francisco, attracted to the landscape and light only found on the coast of Laguna. Like tourists of any era, St Clair returned home with glowing reports and landscape paintings that led his artist friends to follow him south. It wasn’t long before plein air (painting outdoors) artists like William Wendt and Frank Cuprien moved to Laguna Beach. Within a few years, Laguna Beach had a permanent population of about 300 people – half of whom were 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.

In the forest and jungle, trees create entire environments. Standing alone on hillsides, they create lovely shadows. Trees can be tall and straight like a winter pine or bend in the wind. Limbs and branches create wonderful patterns against the sky. A tree will support a tire swing for a child on a hot day, provide sturdy posts to tie up the pet pup or hold a hammock off the ground, and support a backyard laundry line. In winter, snow covered trees create beautiful landscapes.
