RED, YELLOW, and BLUE balloons were the trademark of Wonder Bread for 1950s TV kids. They are also the three basic paint colors an artist needs. Although mixed together you can create a world of color, each stands out on its own as an important visual element.
This competition is about images in which one of these colors is a critical component. You will submit each image into one of the categories RED, YELLOW or BLUE. Possibilities include - black and white photographs with a single point of color, a red, yellow or blue monochrome, essentially any image where red, yellow or blue stands out as an important part of the composition. Is the blue sky a main element of your image, a red ball or maybe a funky pair of yellow sunglasses? Have you modified a print to be all shades of red? Be creative and send us your best!
- Grand Prize: One photographer will receive $1,100. The image will be featured on the home page of the NYC4PA website.
- First Prize: 3 photographers, one each in RED, YELLOW and BLUE, will receive $400.
- Second Prize: 3 photographers, one each in RED, YELLOW and BLUE, will each receive $325.
- Third Prize: 3 photographers, one each in RED, YELLOW and BLUE, will each receive $250.
