Opportunity Description

International Deadline: November 11, 2018 – 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, etc.).

Winners will receive a total of $3,000 in cash awards, be featured in the NYC4PA Online Gallery and Award Winners Catalog. The Grand Prize winning image will be posted on the NYC4PA home page, and Prize Winners and Juror Selections will be featured at the New York Gallery Exhibition at the Jadite Gallery in Manhattan’s exciting Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood.

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

As photographers we know about the dramatic change in photography that came about when color film was introduced. For both portraits and scenics hand coloring was no longer necessary and over time color images joined black and white as fine art.

This call is NYC4PA’s homage to those images where all the emotion, texture and beauty are expressed in shades of Black and White. No matter if your original image was shot with tri x or with a digital SLR, if the end product is a terrific Black and White, it fits the call. Sepia will be accepted.
