Whether you photograph in the city, the suburbs or the country the possibilities are endless. Is it a winding road, a stack of old tires, a 1950s automobile head or taillight?

Capture them as a dominant element of your images and send them in.
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.
