Competitions NYC4PA: Momentum
NOTE: This opp listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!
International Deadline: March 17, 2019 – 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.).
Winners will receive over $4,000 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.
Though a photograph is a snapshot in time, the world around us is in constant motion. This call is not about “still life”, “landscape”, or “posed portrait” images. It is about how you capture the idea of motion/momentum in a single frame; photographs that clearly send a message to the viewer that the subject or the camera/lens is moving. Is the position of the subject the indication – a wave arched to crash, or a ballerina in mid air? Or is it the subject or background blurred as in a speeding train you have panned with background buildings a blur?
Examples are everywhere – the silky vision of water over a waterfall taken at a slow shutter speed, water droplets frozen in time, trees bent in blowing wind, ripples of a boat’s wake, fireworks. Sports, transportation and animals each afford a huge number of possibilities and, of course, there are endless ways camera and zoom action can draw the viewers eye.
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.
