Deadline: May 5

New York Center for Photographic Arts
New York, NY

Juror: Traer Scott

There are references to trees all around us – in music, literature, proverbs, etc. But they are also an iconic visual. Trees make up forests and jungles. They stand alone on hillsides creating lovely shadows. They can be tall and straight like a winter pine or bend in the wind. Limbs and branches create wonderful patterns against the sky. A tree will shade a child on a hot day; provide a sturdy posts to tie up the pet dog or hold a hammock off the ground, as well as support a backyard laundry line.

Send your images of trees as you experience them – forests, single trees, branches, roots…

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 BLACK AND WHITE 2018 catalog. The Grand Prize winning image will be posted on the NYC4PA home page.

Fees: $35 for up to 5 images, $10 for each additional image

Apply to the “Abstract” International Call for Artists and Writers!

Deadline: April 30, 2019

Description: Abstractions are all around us. Ideas can be abstract; existing as an idea, feeling or quality but not having a tangible existence. Some conversations can be abstract, vague and theoretical and not based on particular examples or facts. And of course, there is abstract art which evokes feelings without trying to realistically represent the appearance of people or things. Abstract art, like poetry, offers a fragment of a mysteriously familiar narrative without directly revealing it in a realistic way. Reveal your most ABSTRACT thoughts.

Artists must be 18 years or older.
Submitted work can include any form of visual art - audio and video is not supported

Selected artist will be announced in the ArtAscent newsletter, pUblished in the Art and Literature Journal, Showcased and listed on the website online exhibition, and promoted on Social media.

Submission costs:
Artists (1-3 images): $25
Artists (4-8 images): $45
Writers (1 story/poem): $15

Call for visual artists at the Overture Center!!!
Applications are due Mar. 18, 2019


You get exposure and connections!!

Claire Embil

I know that this is very very last minute, but I think that this is a very cool and unique opportunity. It is a show called "No Holds Barred" and you can submit anything, yes anything, you want. The only rule is that it must be a photograph. Details below:

"All photos selected for the show will be featured on The EXibit website for one year.

Here at The EXibit we have come to the conclusion that there is no such thing as "Pure Photography" anymore.

Every image we see in today's world has been digitally enhanced, refined, manipulated, and just plain reconstructed.

Imposing "Rules" on a photo show is rather absurd.

For this reason, we decided to have the "No Holds Barred" Photo Show, where the artist can enter any kind of "photo" they've created.

We are offering $700 in prizes.

A nice gallery space to display the artwork.

All work juried into the show will be featured on our website for 1 year.

There is a $45 entry fee for 3 JPEGS.

Deadline is March 17."

Iceland's Vanishing Beauty: Photography by Micheal Kientiz


In this exhibition held at the Chazen Museum of Museum of art, Micheal Kientiz exposes the rapidly shrinking but wildly beautiful natural ice sculptures found in Iceland. Through a combination of both conventional and drone photography he managed to capture both accessible and unobtainable views of the massive icebergs and ice caves. He traveled to the southeast region of Iceland because it is known to be the best glacial region. He planned his stay for the winter for lighting purposes. During the winter, Iceland's days are very short. Kientiz explained that these short days create some of the best lighting conditions because, even though the sun is out for only a few hours, it is always at a sunrise or sunset position. This positioning of the sun reflects remarkably on the ice and creates such vibrant colors. Each of these photos were enriched with such saturated blues and whites that they seemed to have been unnatural and artificially made through photoshop. However, Kientiz was adamant about sharing that he refuses to create artificial colors within his photographs because he believes that a photographers job is to capture and share the reality. This was remarkable to learn because you almost didn't want to believe him due to the richness of the colors in the photographs. The overarching purpose of his expedition up to Iceland was to capture the "vanishing beauty" as the title of the exhibition states. Kientiz shared that many of the ice caves and icebergs that are captured in these photos are no longer there or accessible due to climate change and rising temperatures. Kientiz has played an important role in capturing these natural wonders of the world while their time is surely limited.

These photos are breathtaking and the message behind the exhibition is powerful. I suggest everyone take the time visit the Chazen and witness it for themselves.

Entry Fee (INSPIRATION: Studies and Source Entry Fee): $35.00
Media Fee (per sample over minimum): $7.00

Studies & Source
Art is a process. The condition under which we consume art is normally in the solitary state of the finished product. Where does art start? How can we trace backwards from this finalized piece and find the flash of inspiration that started it all? We want to see your process. Show us what inspires you, the words, songs, settings or scenarios which bring you to the point of creation. We want to exhibit this source material in the same manner in which we exhibit the final piece, showing the beginning and end in harmony. If its a poem, letter, song, tv show, movie, postcard, stranger on the bus...we want to know! Each work will be paired with the source of its creation, and there is no wrong answer!

Juror: Jeremiah Morris - Curator, Founder of Specto Art Space

Focus: Landscape and Architecture
Black Box Gallery

Entry Deadline: 12/11/18
Days remaining to deadline: 7
Number of Applications Allowed: 5


Images - Minimum: 1, Maximum: 5

Entry Fee (Focus: Landscape and Architecture Entry Fee): $35.00

Theme: Landscape and Architecture

Black Box Gallery is excited to announce a landscape and architecture juried group photo show. What is the process and diversity of observation, interpretation and documentation of these two photographic genres? How do we look for and create compelling, significant and relevant photographic work that engages the aesthetics, craft, tradition and concepts of landscape and architectural photography?

Juror: Todd Johnson

Deadline: December 11

Exhibition Dates: January 1-20, 2019
Opening Reception: Friday January 4, 6-8:00 pm

Each exhibition will have 24 photographs selected by the juror for exhibiton at the gallery.

An additional 30 photographs will be selected by the juror for exhibition in our on-line gallery annex.

All 54 photographs from the show will be included in a catalog available for purchase on Blurb Books.


The photo lecture I attended was for Michael Kienitz's Iceland's Vanishing Beauty.

He talked mostly about the sites and how he captured the photos. What I found most interesting is that he does plan on exploring other sites, and has taken into account the UN's climate change warning.


The photo exhibit I attended was the vanishing glaciers in Iceland. The photographer who captured the environmentally provocative images was, Micheal Kienitz.

I found the exhibit to be visually and mentally pleasing. The room that the photos were presented in was wide and open and had a glass wall that allowed for as much natural light as possible; emulating the glassy surface of a glacier.

The images were accompanied by a soothing instrumental, that, in my opinion, mimicked the wind bounding off the surface of the ice.

Stamp Gallery Call for Artists

Application Deadline | December 21

Notification Date | January 4

Exhibition Dates | February 13 – March 29


Visualizing Protest: The Art of Resistance

Protests have long been a social tool by which to mobilize groups of people around shared grievances, allowing them to collectively interrogate power structures and enact change through the discursive processes of resistance. Protests have been an important moment at which resistance enters public space and gains broader visibility. Some forms of protest, such as riots, can even erupt spontaneously and result in alternative discourses that undermine the original aims of the protestors.

This exhibition thus seeks to explore the role of visual production around protests. It will consider such questions as: How do we understand the relationship between what is visible/invisible or public/private in collective forms of resistance? How does artwork and new media shape, interrogate, or blur these distinctions? How does the visual response to protests and resistance movements by artists memorialize and historicize the events? Do new technologies change the nature of protests, resistance movements, and how they are mobilized? If so, how we understand them visually? What is the role of audience? What is the role of visual imagery produced by resistance groups themselves?

The curator of this exhibition seeks a small group of artists working in a wide range of media whose work critically engages with and responds to ideas around resistance and protest. Work can focus on recent events within the United States as well as be historically situated or centered on other regions. Selected artwork will be exhibited in Stamp Gallery in the Adele H. Stamp Student Union, University of Maryland, College Park.

Ciera A Lampshire


Deadline: November 19, 2018

Exhibition: January 10 - February 2, 2019

A self-portrait can be a mirror that reflects both how we see (by the creative choices we make) and how the world sees us (or how we want the world to see us). Unlike a casual “selfie,” which requires nothing more than the physical presence of the subject, a good self-portrait holds nuanced clues about who the subject truly is.

Let your self-portrait tell us something about you. All capture and processing methods are welcome.

We are very pleased that Aline Smithson will jury and curate this exhibition. She will select approximately 35 images for exhibition in the gallery, and 35 for our Online Gallery Annex. The recipients of the Juror’s Award and the Director’s Award will each be entitled to a personal portfolio review by Ms. Smithson.

Submissions: $35 for up to 5 images, $6 each additional image.

Physical Exhibit | Through a Magnum Lens: Photographing the 1960s | June 11-September 14, 2018

The turbulence of the 1960s was made powerfully visible through the medium of documentary photography. Many of the iconic images we remember today were captured by members of Magnum, an international photographic cooperative. Commemorating the Madison Reunion and the 50th anniversary of 1968, the Kohler Art Library’s summer show selects some of the poignant moments that defined a decade. Photographers such as Philip Jones Griffiths and Mary Ellen Marks documented the political and economic turmoil that marked the decade: the Vietnam War and anti-war movement; the California Grape Strike led by Cesar Chavez; Civil Rights marches in Washington, D.C. and Selma, Alabama; student protests and strikes in Paris, France; and the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, Senator Robert F. Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X. Cultural happenings such as Woodstock and the Hippie counterculture are also depicted.
On view are photobooks showcasing the work of the following Magnum photographers: Eve Arnold, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bruce Davidson, Elliott Erwitt, Paul Fusco, Leonard Freed, Philip Jones Griffiths, Elliott Landy, Mary Ellen Mark, Constantine Manos, Marc Riboud, W. Eugene Smith, and Dennis Stock.
This exhibit is mounted in conjunction with The Madison Reunion and is on view at the Kohler Art Library, June 11-September 14, 2018.
