Hue Photo Contest

Hue Photo Contest Hue Photo Contest. CALLING FOR SUBMISSIONS. DEADLINE April 16th, 2014 Midnight EST. Juror: Al Satterwhite

Color in photography has symbolism and meaning that travels beyond what you see.

More than the combination of red, green, and blue or cyan, magenta, yellow, and black, color is a visual tool for non-verbal communication: a viewer’s perception and connection to an image can be significantly enhanced by a certain hue.

Strip away the subject matter from a photograph, and what is left behind? Two things. The underlying geometry of the photo, its composition or balance, and the color. The design and geometry make an image coalesce, become solid, and enduring. Whereas the color carries the opposite message, one of transience and impermanence. That’s because colors are not inherent in objects, but change and evolve with the changing light – and we photographers know, light is always changing.

Hues must contrast or complement one another to create a successful image, a delicate dance of visual balance. For this exhibit we are looking for works that exemplify the innate power of color. Images that drive us through hue to an emotive response.

We offer free matting and framing of accepted entries for the duration of each of our exhibition, subject to standard sizes. Photographers set their own prices if they wish to sell their work and retain all rights to their photographs.
