Entry Deadline: Monday October 20, 2014

International Competition for Photographs and Photo-Based Artwork at Umbrella Arts, New York City. Conceived and juried by Harvey Stein, Director of Photography, Umbrella Arts; photographer, educator, author, curator.

We want to see your photographs of KIDS (NOT CUTE). We define KIDS as any human being from the age of 5 to 12 years (yes, somewhat arbitrary but we have to start and end somewhere that is somewhat logical). Any format, any camera, any style is fine. We are seeking images of KIDS that are a bit unusual and out of the ordinary, not the conventionally cute and sentimental images that are often seen. The photographs can be amusing, interesting, sad, frank and biting. The tone can convey an appreciation for the joys and difficulties experienced by KIDS in the essentially absurd predicament of growing into an adult world. KIDS pictured in environments from home to zoo, from city streets to rural and suburban places, from the neighborhood to the ends of the earth, with or without their fellow man or KIDS are all sought.
