Opportunity Description

International Deadline: June 10, 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.

Art history is filled with images of HUMANS that have changed our lives and changed our minds. Painting, sculpture, works on paper, and now photography, have engaged us in our own reflection. Photography, the most accessible medium, shows us our humanity through traditional portraiture, street photography, families, events and maybe even selfies. This is not about equipment, it is about ideas and vision. We consider our various manifestations as we see through the lens of others. Annie Leibovitz, Richard Avedon, Henri Cartier Bresson, Vivian Meier – all have a unique vision of who we are.

HUMANS is a call for entry for YOUR vision of who we are. Images must have people in them photographed alone, as couples or in groups. Images can be spontaneous or structured, in the street, at sporting events or celebrations. This call for entry is about how you see yourself and/or the people around you. Captured traditionally or by alternative process, cell phone or film, the possibilities are endless.
