Abstract Photography Competition (Online)- Call For Artists

Abstract Photography Competition (Online)- Call For Artists

[Sponsored Listing] The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Abstract, an online photography competition. Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality, but instead use shapes, colors, forms, and gestural marks to achieve its effect.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 7 Mar 2021

The early days of photography centered on true to life imagery, i.e. family portraits, images of streets, towns, and mansions. Over time, photographers expanded their vision to more moody images, ultimately to where photography is today – an all encompassing art form generated by camera and lens and producing a vast sampling of imagery from reality to less recognizable abstracts.

This call is about the abstracts – those images that are not instantly identified as that person, that thing, and so forth. It doesn’t matter if you photograph something abstract or create the abstraction through photographic processes. Macro shots, close ups of graffiti, fanciful post processing manipulations, or just photographing something at an angle that disguises it. They all work. As with all NYC4PA calls all 2D photo mediums are welcome.

The prizes total $3000 and have 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. A professional photographer, gallery owner, or photography teacher is the juror.
