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.

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. A professional photographer, gallery owner, or photography teacher is the juror.
