International Juried Photography Call for Entry
JUROR: Ann M. Jastrab
Executive Director - Center for Photographic Art
DEADLINE: January 17, 2021 (Midnight Pacific Time)
PRIZE ANNOUNCEMENTS WILL BE SENT TO ALL ENTRANTS TWO TO THREE WEEKS AFTER THE DEADLINE.
The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) invites photographers world-wide to submit images using any photographic process (print, image transfer, emulsion transfer, encaustic, black and white, etc.). Winners will receive $4,000 in cash awards, be featured in the NYC4PA Online Gallery and in the BLACK and WHITE catalog. The Grand Prize winning image will be posted on the NYC4PA home page.
RED, YELLOW, and BLUE tubes of paint are the basic building blocks for all the colors of the rainbow. They also stand alone, individually, as strong primary color artistic elements.
Send us your images where one of these colors stands out as a critical element of your photographic composition. You decide which of the three colors RED, YELLOW or BLUE is central to each image and submit to the category that matches.
The number of possibilities is vast and includes black and white photographs with a single point of color, red, yellow or blue monochromes, or any image where one of these PRIMARY COLORS stands out as a focal part of the photograph. Is the blue sea what catches your eye, a red clown nose or maybe a big yellow school bus? Have you modified a print to be all shades of red? This is a theme to have fun with.
As with all NYC4PA calls all 2D photo mediums are welcome.
EXHIBITION AND AWARDS:
There will be 10 cash prizewinners, 20 Juror Selections and 20 Honorable Mentions
Grand Prize: One photographer will receive $1,100. The image will be featured on the home page of the NYC4PA website.
