International Deadline: September 23, 2018 – The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) invites photographers worldwide to submit images using any photographic process (print, image transfer, emulsion transfer, encaustic, black and white, color etc.).

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.

In lieu of our usual summer greeting NYC4PA invites you to celebrate summer with an special call for entry this year. The theme, simply and naturally, is “SUMMER”. Any images that represent summer to you are welcome.

For those in the northern hemisphere summer is from June through September and in the southern hemisphere November through March. Whichever months your summer spans it is the season of long days, warm temperatures, swimming, beaches, lakes, pools, and street hydrants splashing. It is also the season of charitable summer camps for inner city youth and temporarily halted school romances. As you can see the scope is broad from sun tanning and baseball to kids making the best of it in city streets and bathing suits drying on the line. How do you capture summer?
