New York Photographic Arts Center invites photographers from all over the world to participate in the competition

Deadline: 26 January 2020

The New York Photo Arts Center (NYC4PA) invites amateur and professional photographers from all over the world to a competition dedicated to water. The winners will receive a $3,000 prize fund, participation in the New York Gallery Exhibition, online demonstration and catalogue. The winner of the Grand Prix will be shown on the main page of the official NYC4PA website. The winning authors and jury will also be invited to JADITE GALLERY (April 2020, Hell's Kitchen District, Manhattan). Everyone will be awarded certificates.

About the theme of the competition:

Water is everywhere, everywhere, and it is the most important part of our lives. How will you capture it in a photo? It's a sparkling drop from the polar bear as it shakes off. She's in the surfer's curls or the smooth surface of the river, where the ship slowly glides. Tears, rain, dew, drifting ice floes, waterfalls and serene lakes. The list goes on. Black and white, color, abstract, experimental, mixed - all kinds and techniques of photos are accepted.
