NYC4PA Call for Entry: ONE
“One singular sensation” what a great song. This call is about images with a single compelling focal point. It could be a person or thing that is alone in the frame or an element of a large grouping that clearly stands out. A field of lilacs with a single bright red rose would fit the bill as would a portrait reminiscent of Andrew Wyeth’s “Christina’s World”, and the single shell on a vast beach. Using selective focus you can isolate a single pedestrian from the crowd on a city street. What about that track runner clearly in front of the pack or the prematurely leafless tree amidst a forest of foliage? Once again, the possibilities are endless out there – let’s see how you capture them.
- Grand Prize: One photographer will receive $1,100. The image will be featured on the home page of the NYC4PA website.
- First Prize: 3 photographers will receive $400.
- Second Prize: 3 photographers will receive $325.
- Third Prize: 3 photographers will receive $250.

When you’re out taking photos, you’re essentially trying to capture a 3D world in a 2D medium, which can sometimes fall flat. So, when composing your photos, look for ways to add depth. You can do this by including interesting elements in the foreground, middle ground and/or background. For example, if you’re taking a landscape picture of a beautiful mountainous horizon, rather than only including the horizon line in the photo, try incorporating something interesting in the foreground and/or middle ground to draw the viewer’s eye through the image. This could be a person, a group of trees, some rocks or a beautiful lake.
