Compete NYC4PA: Urban, Suburban, and Rural

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

New York Center for Photographic Art

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: June 12, 2022 – 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, etc.).

Urban, Suburban, and Rural: These are life choices, whether for living or visiting. What about these locales caught your eye? Was it the skyline, parked cars, or lights of the theater in the Urban Landscape? Alternatively, did you capture the bar-b-q in a Suburban backyard. Maybe it was the geometry of a street of well-groomed front yards, a strip mall or other image representative of the Suburban Scene. And finally were you caught up in the imagery of Rural Impressions – the hills, the dales, the cows, the horses, the white farm fences, or rusted cars on front lawns.

Send us your interpretations of Rural Impressions, Suburban Scenes and Urban Landscapes. Lots to see, lots to photograph.

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.
