The New York Center for Photographic Arts (NYC4PA) invites photographers world-wide to submit images using any photographic process (print, image transfer, emulsion transfer, encaustic, black and white, etc.). Winners will receive $3,000 in cash awards, be featured in a New York Gallery Exhibition, on the NYC4PA Online Gallery and in the MACRO 2015 catalog. The Grand Prize winning image will be posted on the NYC4PA home page.
We are very excited that Winners and Juror’s Selections will have the opportunity to participate in a gallery show, April 19 – 30, 2016 at the JADITE GALLERY in the exciting Hell’s Kitchen area in Manhattan.
MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY – Is it simply a close up? Is it really that simple? Do you use a macro lens, close up filter, extension tube or other tool? Do you create images that are well defined and quite identifiable? Or have you have moved in on a small part of an object whose identity is harder to define. However you work, if the resulting image is a “close up/macro” shot, that is what we are looking for. Be creative, get in close, show us what you’ve got.
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.
· First Prizes: 3 photographers will each receive $300. Their images will be exhibited in the New York Gallery show, the NYC4PA Online Gallery and in the exhibition catalog.
· Second Prizes: 3 photographers will each receive $250. Their images will be exhibited in the New York Gallery show, the NYC4PA Online Gallery and in the exhibition catalog.
