Like teenagers, artists have lots of ideas: weather those ideas become failures or game changers, they define who we become. treat gallery is seeking artists who have been dreaming for awhile.

The SE Center for Photography is looking for Shades of Black and White. For the first 100 years of photography monochrome was the only choice. When asked to name a fine art photographer, one usually thinks of those of 1930s-70s, masters of black and  white, shadow and light, form and contrast. The photographers of today turn to shades of black and white for the same expressive ability of monochrome and we're looking for the best.

Mpls Photo Center: Game Day USA

Game Day USA
Deadline: December 10

Mpls Photo Center
Minneapolis, MN

Juror: Brian Peterson

Game Day, U.S.A. is a sports photography competition that will consider images from both professional and amateur sports activities equally. From the NFL to pond hockey in the backyard, World Cup skiing to suburban soccer, we are looking for those special moments both on and off the field that convey the essence of sporting endeavors.

Among all the genres of photography, few rely on capturing "the decisive moment" more than the art and craft of sports and action photography. Unpredictable and fast, the peak action can be anywhere at anytime, and often some of the the most insightful and poignant photographs are away from the field of endeavor.  Photographing sports and other competitions (whether professional or amateur) with excellence requires the perfect balance of art and technology, experience, insight, and craft. The poignant, intense and often extreme displays of athleticism and emotion that result from winning and losing can make for powerful, gut-wrenching pictures, and the best moments are fleeting.

This special exhibition of international sports photography  will be on display beginning January 27 at the Mpls Photo Center, just in time to kick-off the week-long activities leading up to SuperBowl 52 at the Vikings new world-class stadium  on Sunday, February 4th. Just 2 miles from U.S. Bank Stadium, the world-wide sporting audience here in the Twin Cities for this special week will have the opportunity to see YOUR pictures at the Mpls Photo Center. Please submit your best sports photographs and memories, from both on and off the playing field. 

Fees: $25 for up to 3 images, $10 for each additional image up to 8.

Deadline: January 8

Soho Photo
New York, NY

Juror: Sandra Carrion

Our philosophy at Soho Photo Gallery is that in the hands of any artist great photographs can be made with basic equipment. To explore this talent, we are searching for extraordinary photographs made with lousy lenses. Examples of some Krappy Kameras are the Holga, Diana, Ansco, and pinhole cameras. You can also create your own Krappy Kamera by using your non-Krappy Kamera (e.g. 4×5, SRL, DSLR) and exchanging the lensz with a Krappy lens (e.g.pinhole body cap or Holga-type lens). Cell phones, disposables and point and shoot cameras are ineligible. Remember, just because a camera is old and moldy doesn’t make it Krappy. The lens is the determining factor.

In honor of the 20th Anniversary, the 1st place award will be $500. The awards for 2nd and 3rd place and three Honorable Mentions are provided by the sponsors: Fuji lm, Lomography, Lensbaby and Freestyle Photographic Supplies. In addition, a People’s Choice award will be provided by Soho Photo Gallery at the opening reception.

New York Center for Photographic Arts
New York, NY

Juror: Aline Smithson, Publisher, Lenscratch

Remember the Three Dog Night song "One is the Loneliest Number" but is it? In this call we are looking for those 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 lot filled with blue cars with a single bright red one would fit the bill as would a portrait reminiscent of Andrew Wyeth's "Christina's World", and the six foot tall teacher surrounded by his or her grade school class.  Selective focus can isolate a single horse from the herd or a single pedestrian from the crowd on a city street.  What about that basketball player leaping in the air for a dunk shot 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.

The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) invites photographers world-wide to submit images using any photographic process (print, image transfer, emulsion transfer, encaustic, black and white, etc.). Prizes include $3,000 in cash awards, a New York Gallery Exhibition and images in both the  NYC4PA Online Gallery and in the ONE 2017 catalog. Cash Prize Winners and Juror’s Selections will have the opportunity to participate in a gallery show, April 3rd – 14th, 2018 at the Jadite Gallery in the exciting Hell’s Kitchen area in Manhattan. The Grand Prize winning image will be posted on the NYC4PA home page.

Foley Gallery: Mirror Mirror

Mirror Mirror
Deadline: October 29

Foley Gallery
New York, NY

Juror: Elinor Carruci

Mirrors and Beauty go hand in hand. Originally an incantation in the Brothers Grimm 19th-century story Little Snow-White and expanded upon in Disney's version more than 100 years later, “Mirror, mirror” has us questioning what beauty is and how it can be measured.

Mirrors are reflective surfaces, typically constructed of glass coated with a metal amalgam that reflects a clear image. You can take our theme literally and look to the properties of a mirror or reflective surface, or you can look at a mirror as metaphor for beauty. You artwork need not have a depiction of an actual mirror in it to be considered.

Fees: 3 images for $30, 4 images for $40, 5-6 images for $50

Artist Residency
Deadline: September 30

As we celebrate Denali National Park and Preserve’s 100th birthday, the park has a refreshed commitment to embrace the next century of inspiration and conservation.  Denali is seeking a diverse suite of voices to help share the unique story of Denali through art, with an eye to the future as we ask applicants to focus on the subjects of sustainability, recycling, re-purposing or climate change. Alaska Native artists and artists between the ages of 16 and 25 are strongly encouraged to apply.The Artist-in-Residence program is dedicated to exploring new ways for visitors to experience Denali. From hundreds of competitive applications each year, about a half-dozen accomplished artists, writers, and composers are invited by the park superintendent to spend ten days in Denali at their own expense the following winter or summer. Visits include a permit for limited access along the Denali Park Road and time alone at a historic ranger patrol cabin.

Each participant volunteers to lead a public outreach activity with visitors and to donate a finished work to the program collection. Artists are challenged to create works for visitors that convey a fresh and innovative perspective of Denali drawn from direct experience. With the welcome addition of several year-round gallery spaces beyond park boundaries, more of these donated works enjoy a larger life in the public eye.

Costs of program operations and collateral-duty staffing are supported by visitor entry fees. Costs of supplies for free outreach activities are provided by Alaska Geographic with funds derived from purchases at park bookstores.

The Residency Experience and Expectations:  All residents must provide their own transportation to and from the park, as well as any supplies, provisions, clothing, and outdoor gear for the duration of their stay. No stipend is provided. Each resident may bring one adult guest to stay within accommodations provided.

Guggenheim Fellowship

John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship
Deadline: September 19

The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation provides fellowships for advanced professionals in all fields — including the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, and creative arts — except the performing arts. To that end, the foundation awards approximately two hundred fellowships a year.

The fellowships are intended for individuals who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts. The program seeks to further the development of scholars and artists by helping them engage in research in any field of knowledge or artistic creation in any of the arts, under the freest possible conditions.

Fellowships provide grants to selected individuals over a period ranging between six and twelve months. Since the purpose of the program is to help provide fellows with blocks of time in which they can work with as much creative freedom as possible, fellows may spend their grant funds in any manner they deem necessary.

Support is only available to individuals. Fellowships are not available for the creation of residencies, curriculum development, or any type of educational program, nor are they available to support the development of websites or blogs.

The foundation understands the performing arts to be those in which an individual interprets work created by others. Accordingly, the foundation will provide fellowships to composers but not conductors, singers, or instrumentalists; choreographers but not dancers; filmmakers, playwrights, and performance artists who create their own work but not actors or theater directors.

Grant amounts vary, and the foundation does not guarantee it will fully fund any project.
