We are very excited that Winners and Juror’s Selections will have the opportunity to participate in a gallery show, SEPTEMBER 15 – 26, 2015, at the JADITE GALLERY in the exciting Hell’s Kitchen area in Manhattan.
You can almost feel the difference when you travel out of a city. Rural evokes scenes of horse country with rolling hills, houses with rusted cars on the lawn and chickens in the yard, a desert with cactus, or the serene setting of a pond crowded with birds. Whatever images you have that speak to the architecture, landscape, or life in rural areas around the world we would love to see them.
Grand Prize: One photographer will receive $750. The image will be part of the New York gallery show, the NYC4PA Online Gallery and the exhibition catalog. It will be featured on the home page of NYC4PA website.
