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, color etc.).
Winners will receive a total of $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. This is an NYC4PA Summer call and like the Midwinter contest there is no gallery show but our cash prizes are higher.
Secondary Colors: Orange, Purple, Green
Orange is red brought nearer to humanity by yellow.
Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.
A garden of purple is always in bloom!
NYC4PA “Primary Colors” calls for entry have been some of our favorite contests. Though red, yellow and blue are, in fact, primary colors they not the not the only important hues out there for the color photographer.
Secondary Colors: Orange, Green and Purple are as impactful and can be the foundation for equally compelling imagery. Images in which one of these colors stands out as a critical element are what we are looking for. It can be a black and white with a single point of color, a Green, Orange or Purple monochrome, or any image where a SECONDARY COLOR stands out as a focal point. The possibilities in nature alone are endless with green leaves and lawns, orange bursts of autumn color and purple flowers as well as magical purple hazes that can set off late afternoon scenes. Clothing, pumpkins, traffic lights, automobiles, the list goes on and on.
