Portals (Online Photography Competition) – Call For Artists

Portals (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 Portals, an online photography competition.

Portals is one of NYC4PA’s favorite themes. It allows for so much creativity capturing things that are all around wherever we may be.

Doors, windows, arches, frames, and tunnels are so much a part of our lives. There are so many ways to think about them. We can look at or through them. We can poke our hand out the window to test the weather, or see a wonderful scene a little differently when framed by an arch or array of tree limbs in a park.

For this call, your images can focus on the portal itself like a half closed door, wonderful windowsill, or view through an archway 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. Be creative and have fun in the process.

As with all NYC4PA calls, all 2D photographic art is accepted. Images awarded an NYC4PA prize within the past 2 years are not eligible. Images submitted that were not selected for a prize may be submitted at any time.

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.

Decay, Corrosion, Rust can take many forms – black and white, color, or abstract. All photographic media are welcome.

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.

Click here for the application / registration 

Enter by: 29 October 2023

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.
