Competitions NYC4PA International: Wandering Curves
International Deadline: April 30, 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 over $3,000 in cash awards, be featured in the NYC4PA Online Gallery and Wandering Curves 2017 catalog. The Grand Prize winning image will be posted on the NYC4PA home page, and Cash prize winners and Juror Selections will be featured at the Fall 2017 NYC4PA gallery exhibition at the Jadite Gallery in Manhattan’s exciting Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood.
WANDERING CURVES – THE CURVE CHANGES EVERYTHING
Because everyone had so much fun that last time we ran this theme, we decided to challenge you once again to submit images that, rather than focusing on a particular subject, or color palette, have a curve, or curves, as a critical element. The possibilities are endless, from winding roads to automobile trim to the curvaceous form of an elephant’s trunk when feeding. And don’t forget the round edge of grandpa’s bald head or a cold refreshing scoop of ice cream sitting atop a cone. Curves are all around us all the time. Capture them as a dominant element of your images and send them in. Have fun with this.
This Call for Entries is open worldwide to both amateur and professional photographers. NYC4PA invites photographers working in all mediums, styles and schools of thought to participate. Experimental and mixed techniques are welcome. Only 2-D work is eligible.
