Primary Colours Photography Competition

Primary Colours Photography Competition

The New York Center for Photographic Arts (NYC4PA) invites photographers from around the world to submit images using any photographic process (print, image transfer, emulsion transfer, encaustic, black and white, etc.). Your images should be such that one of the primary colours (Red, Yellow or Blue) stands out as a critical element of your photographic composition. You decide which of the three colours is central to each image and submit to the category that matches. The number of possibilities is vast and includes black and white photographs with a single point of colour - Red, Yellow or Blue.
