Beauty in Decay

Organisation:

Eligibility:

Beauty is subjective in the eye of the viewer. Societal conventions pressure us to conform in like-mindedness to visual pinnacles, yet the most ethereal craft often originates from divergent work that transgresses tradition. How does your work depict "beauty" in our deconstruction of the captured image? Potential subject matter includes but is not limited to abandoned places, found objects, still life, and the examination of decomposition and demise. Beauty in Decay is an international juried group exhibition open to photographers ages 18 years and older. All black and white, color, conventional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Location: 
Louisville, Kentucky, Online

NYC4PA CALL FOR ENTRY - DECAY CORROSION RUST

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

I got a brand new pair of roller of roller skates, you got a brand new key

So sang Melanie. Though we often focus on the new and shiny there is amazing beauty in the decayed, the corroded, the rusted and it can make images of those items so much more compelling and interesting.

Consider the textures and colors in an abandoned, dilapidated factory or prison, the rust on an old bike, contrasting plaster and lathing on a corroded wall and the myriad of possible captures in a junkyard.  Neighborhoods, disparagingly called "run down", are treasure troves of "decayed" tumble down houses, "corroded" discarded toys, "rusted" cars, trash cans and so on. 

Decay, Corrosion, Rust.... can take many forms; black and white, color, abstract - all photographic media are welcome. 

As with all NYC4PA calls, all 2D photographic art is accepted.

Prize summary: 
$4000
Prizes Details: 

$1100 GRAND PRIZE; 3 $400 FIRST PRIZES; 3 325 SECOND PRIZES; 3 $250 THIRD PRIZES

Deadline: 
24/April/2022
