Competitions NYC4PA International: Glass 2017

New York Center for Photographic ArtsNew York, New York, United States

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: June 11, 2017 – 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, color etc.).

Winners will receive $3,000 in cash awards, be featured in a New York Gallery Exhibition, on the NYC4PA Online Gallery and in the MACRO 2015 catalog.

THEME: GLASS
Is the GLASS half full or half empty?
People in GLASS houses shouldn’t throw stones.
We work on shattering the GLASS ceiling.
The ice is as smooth as GLASS.

What is so magical about this substance, made from sand, that it comes up in so many proverbs and sayings?  It is magical – the invention of glass allowed us, for the first time, to be able to observe things while having a barrier to keep us warm, safe, and dry. We can store liquids safely and know how much is left in the bottle. GLASS is not only a practical solution to so many situations, but also the foundation for an entire area of art, think of Dale Chihuly. Whether you create wonderful images about drinking glasses, eye glasses, wavy window panes or glass beads, Murano glass or beach glass, it all works.
