Winners will receive $3,000 in cash awards, be featured in a New York Gallery Exhibition, on the NYC4PA Online Gallery and in the PATTERNS and SHADOWS catalog.

We are very excited that Winners and Juror’s Selections will have the opportunity to participate in a gallery show, APRIL 3 – 14, 2018 at the JADITE GALLERY in the exciting Hell’s Kitchen area in Manhattan.
PATTERNS and SHADOWS:
There is a striking photograph of a camel caravan taken from above. At first glance you see dark animals and riders in the bright sunset the color of sand. On closer inspection you see tiny well-lit camels and riders with the strength of the image in the tall dark shadows cast in the setting sun. In the same vein, dusk casts shadows on a flight of stairs creating a canvas of black and white stripes. Just as powerful are shots where the impact of the image is derived from patterns in the composition such as the tile pattern on the Sydney Opera House, rows of theater chairs etc. Interesting interpretations of your own shadow are welcome as well. Be creative – send us your best.
