Oranbeg Press: NET 2.4: Moments that stay


Moments that stay

Prompt: It can be fleeting and lingering.
It can collect dust on the shelf or be freshly polished.
When is it
a 4×6 print,
a video that disappears after a few seconds,
a memory that was half-forgotten,
a scrap of paper full of inspiration,
a screenshot to remember,
an anthology that is within
All filed away for another day.


This issue will debut at the Philadelphia Art Book Fair

Defining Family, The 9th Kuala Lumpur International Photo Awards Portrait Prize

Kuala Lumpur Photo Festival
Kuala Lumpur,


How do societies across the world see and define the family ? Are traditional conservative definitions sufficient in encompassing changing family structures across various nations? Are there major differences between Western and Eastern societies? Are formal definitions sufficient in defining same-sex parents, adopted children and mixed race families? What about co-habiting couples who aren’t legally married but live a traditional family-life?

We welcome your wide interpretations in all styles – photojournalistic, found & staged, conceptual, casual or formal – and help us define The Family. Photographers may submit single images or enter a series of portraits which forms a photo-story, following the theme.

Not forgetting also, our OPEN SINGLE Image category – photographers are invited to submit portraits not necessarily confined to our theme. Challenge our judges to new and fresh imagery from all genres and styles.

Jadite Gallery
NYC, New York


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.).

Because everyone had so much fun that last time we ran this theme, we decided to   challenge you once again to submit images that, rather than focusing on a particular subject, or color palette, have a curve, or curves, as a critical element.  The possibilities are endless, from winding roads to automobile trim to the curvaceous form of an elephant’s trunk when feeding.  And don’t forget the round edge of grandpa’s bald head or a cold refreshing scoop of ice cream sitting atop a cone.  Curves are all around us all the time.  Capture them as a dominant element of your images and send them in.  Have fun with this.

L.A. Photo Curator: “Senses working Overtime” with curator Peter Bennett


Note from Bennett: “One of the first things I talk to my students about is the challenge of experiencing a scene or subject with four or five of our senses and then translating those feelings into a two-dimensional frame and image. I might be standing on a beach, watching a beautiful sunset, feeling the sand beneath my feet, listening to the waves crash and the gulls chirp and smelling the salty ocean breezes, but how do I distill all the sensory information, other than visual, into a photograph?

To successfully achieve my goal, I have to focus on what visually, and only visually, is contributing to and invoking my feelings about the subject. More importantly I must exclude things that are not contributing to that feeling or distracting from it.

Please submit photographs of subjects or scenes that you feel have successfully captured a number of senses. Can you smell the delicious plate of food you shot? Can you feel the cool autumn breezes of the rural landscape you photographed or the sound of a creek gurgling by?

I would also say we have more than five senses, so maybe you feel the aura of the person you are photographing, the love or anger they are conveying, or simply the glow they feel with the warmth of the light upon their face.

There is no wrong way to do this, I just ask that you explore a variety of feelings outside the purely visual one and see what is there. Light, shadow, color and texture are the obvious components we use in our work, but what is underneath them for us to explore?”

Peter Bennett, born in New York City and raised in Greenwich Village, has been a successful travel and environmental photographer for over 25 years and has his work appear in numerous publications and books worldwide. In 2015 he formed Citizen of the Planet, LLC, devoted exclusively to the distribution of his work and stories on sustainability and environmental subjects. Since 2009 Peter has been teaching and leading workshops at the Los Angeles Center of Photography (formally Julia Dean Photo Workshops). Peter has been photographing and documenting the Los Angeles River since 2008, one of its most transformative periods. His work on the river has been exhibited in numerous recent shows and will be the subject of an upcoming book.

20% of all artist fees go to two charities a month. They’re split between the curator’s favorite charity and the first place winner’s favorite charity.

Peter Bennett has chosen Friends of the L.A. River as his charity.
