New York Center for Photographic Art : Primary Colors
Oct 09, 2022
By ExpoArtist staff. Updated Jun 24
RED, YELLOW, and BLUE balloons were the trademark of Wonder Bread for 1950s TV kids. They are also the three basic paint colors an artist needs.  Although mixed together you can create a world of color, each stands out on its own as an important visual element.
This competition is about images in which one of these colors is a critical component.  You will submit each image into one of the categories RED, BLUE or YELLOW. Possibilities include - black and white photographs with a single point of color, a red, yellow or blue monochrome, essentially any image where red, yellow or blue stands out as an important part of the composition. Is the blue sky a main element of your image, a red ball or maybe a funky pair of yellow sunglasses? Have you modified a print to be all shades of red?  Be creative and send us your best!
There will be 10 cash prizewinners, 20 Juror Selections and 20 Honorable Mentions.  Winners will receive a total of $4,000 in cash awards, be featured  on the NYC4PA Online Gallery and in the PRIMARY COLORS catalog. The Grand Prize winning image will be posted on the NYC4PA home page.
JUROR: Michael Itkoff.
DEADLINE: October 9, 2022.
