Compete NYC4PA: Call for Artists – Primary Colors

New York Center for Photographic Arts New York City, New York, United States

New York Center for Photographic Art

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: October 9, 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 on the NYC4PA Online Gallery and in the PRIMAY COLORS catalog. The Grand Prize winning image will be posted on the NYC4PA home page.

SubRED, YELLOW, and BLUE balloons were the trademark of Wonder Bread for 1950s TV kids. They are also the three basic paint colors an artist needs. Although mixed together you can create a world of color, each stands out on its own as an important visual element.

This competition is about images in which one of these colors is a critical component. You will submit each image into one of the categories RED, BLUE or YELLOW. Possibilities include – black and white photographs with a single point of color, a red, yellow or blue monochrome, essentially any image where red, yellow or blue stands out as an important part of the composition. Is the blue sky a main element of your image, a red ball or maybe a funky pair of yellow sunglasses? Have you modified a print to be all shades of red? Be creative and send us your best!

ELIGIBILITY
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.
