Compete NYC4PA: Call for Artists – Black & White
International Deadline: December 11, 2022 – The New York Center for Photographic Arts (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.
Photography, in its infancy, was entirely about black and white or monochrome images. Color was an after print add on. NYC4PA, with this call, is once again focusing on one of our favorite themes – Black and White celebrating those images still so central to the field of photography despite the introduction of color film and the vast array of image capture and post process adjustment software.
This Call for Entries is open worldwide to both amateur and professional photographers. Send us your monochrome images where all the emotion, texture and beauty are expressed in shades from white to dark. No matter if your original image was shot with tri x, a digital SLR, or your phone, if the end product is a terrific monochrome image (Black and White or Sepia), it fits the call.
As with all NYC4PA calls all 2D photo mediums are welcome.
Dan Burkholder is known for looking over photography’s horizon to discover new ways of capturing and expressing the photographic image. In the early 1990’s he wrote the groundbreaking book Making Digital Negatives for Contact Printing. After Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast in 2005, Burkholder recorded the chaos of post-Katrina New Orleans in his poignant monograph The Color of Loss, the first coffee table book photographed entirely with high dynamic range (HDR) techniques. In 2012, Burkholder led the mobile photography revolution with his forward-looking book iPhone Artistry. Dan earned his BA and Master’s degrees in Photography from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. His platinum/palladium and pigmented prints are included in private and public collections internationally.
