NYC4PA - Colors of the Commonplace

• New York Center for Photographic Arts

• Deadline: February 11th, 2024

• Prize: Exhibition + Sales

• Theme: Colors of the Commonplace

• Entry Fees: Yes


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 $4,000 in cash awards, be featured in the NYC4PA Online Gallery and in the COLORFUL WORLD OF THE COMMONPLACE catalog. The Grand Prize winning image will be posted on the NYC4PA home page. 


The word “commonplace” suggests things we see without really noticing them.     Some synonyms are vanilla, customary, every day, mundane, with examples like doors, buildings, benches, cars, teacups, glasses that you come across everyday while out walking, on the train, in the car, at the supermarket, or even in your own house. The challenge for this call is in creating photographs where the “COLORS of the  Commonplace” generate an image with impact and makes it pop.


Show us how you choose to meet this challenge. As with all NYC4PA calls for entry all 2d photographs are welcome.
