      CALL FOR ENTRIES:
      Manifest Creative Research Gallery & Drawing Center
      International PAINTING Annual 2

      Deadline for entry: June 30, 2011

      The International PAINTING Annual (INPA) is a project of Manifest Press, and a complementary project to the ongoing Drawing Annual project (INDA) which was begun in 2005. The goal of the INPA is to support the recognition, documentation, and publication of excellent, current, and relevant works of painting from around the world. As a carefully designed high-end book, the INPA enables Manifest to assemble a diverse array of works from around the world, without the limitation of physical availability, gallery space, or shipping logistics. Manifest’s book projects support our inquiry into the creative efforts of artists working today, and serve to document the exceptional results for posterity.

      A wide variety of approaches to painting are welcome and encouraged, including a range of painting types, from the most academic to the most experimental, but all with some relevance to the artists’ honest understanding of the practice of “painting.” Works that challenge the common notion that painting must be made with ‘paint’ are also welcome.

      Media: Open to any media applicable to the practice of painting including but by no means limited to traditional painting media. Printmaking, digital/new media, photography, sculpture, drawing, installation, etc., are all possibly valid.

      Manifest Creative Research Gallery & Drawing Center
      Call for Exhibit Proposals

      Manifest is calling for exhibit proposals for solo, two-person, group, and concept shows.

      The deadline for proposals is June 1, 2011. Seasons begin late September. Selections are made and season planned by end of July.

      On average one-third of Manifest’s exhibits are dedicated to solo exhibits. Solo exhibitors have included local, regional, and national artists from as far away as New York City and San Francisco. It is important that each of our seasons of free public exhibits consist of a balanced mix of solo and group thematic projects. The group shows provide diversity of approach, media, style, and geographic origin, while the solo exhibits provide a deeper insight into one artist’s vision.

      Well over 100 artists exhibit, and 3000 or more patrons visit the gallery each year. Thousands of artists submit works to thematic projects produced at the gallery. And our exhibits are routinely reviewed in local, and sometimes national, news and art publications. We believe this makes the spots in our schedule reserved for solo or proposed exhibits highly valuable.

      For more information and to submit a proposal, please visit: http://www.manifestgallery.org/proposals/index.html

      The Mindful Bike presents a Winter Bicycle Art Exhibition

      January 2012 (Deadline: Dec. 9, 2011)

      The Mindful Bike 3509 E 12th Ave, Denver, CO 80206

      Call for entries:
      The Mindful Bike, a Bike shop in Denver, Colorado, specializing in practical, commuter-friendly, city bicycles is seeking submissions for an art exhibit in January 2012. The exhibit will be devoted to “bike art;” under this category, bike-related 2-D art, bike-related 3-D art, bike-related design, and bike-related film all apply!
      There is no other restriction to submissions to this show except that they stay true to the theme of “bicycles,” and certain size limitations. Given that the show will be installed in a retail space for bicycles, there are finite space restrictions to take into account. Because of this, we ask that 2-D art be no larger than 36” on any given side. Concerning 3-D art we will consider the submission of art which involves the use of an actual bicycle (for example; airbrushing, pin-striping, or welding to a bicycle. Email us for details and approval of such a project).

      For more info, including a full prospectus, please visit: http://www.mindfulbike.com or email kcouture44@gmail.com!

      Scripts and Systems
      May 25 – July 15, 2012

      Do you follow maps, assembly instructions, recipes, dance steps, or tutorials? Do you ever plan, plot, devise, or scheme?

      Many of our daily and most menial tasks have been reduced to orderly algorithms – a discrete set of steps, rules, or calculations followed in specific order to accomplish a task. With improving technology, we are personally responsible for fewer of these steps.

      We’ve invented algorithms to plan algorithms and systems to create systems: from assembly-line robots and automated, interplanetary rovers to the robotic vacuum cleaners in our homes and the GPS orchestrating our daily commute. We have embraced the “set-it-and-forget-it” approach in nearly every aspect of our lives, laying trust on systems more than ever. Rinse, lather, and repeat.

      Scripts and Systems is an exhibition about these plans and plots. It is about letting go of control – even in our creative lives. It is about the relationship between people and our machines, about whom we give instruction to and whom we take it from. It is about all of the scripts we follow.

      Themes including (but not limited to) the following may be integrated into the final exhibition: analog/digital interaction, hand craft versus manufacturing, automation, programming, mapping, artificial intelligence, human / computer interaction, robotics and organic/synthetic synergy and opposition.

      Artists interested in submitting work for consideration are encouraged to creatively interpret the theme. Works in all media are eligible.

      For full prospectus please visit http://www.lexingtonartleague.org/calltoartist.htm and look under “Scripts and Systems.”

      6th Annual Master Pieces
      Deadline for Entry: May 30, 2012
      Exhibit dates: July 13- August 10, 2012.
      Every year Manifest offers an opportunity for graduate students to exhibit at our gallery in Cincinnati. This sixth installment of the Master Pieces project will continue to reveal the intensity and professionalism of students working towards their terminal academic degree in the field of art or design. Often the most exceptional work comes out of these artists’ immersion in their culture of study and intellectual pursuit. Manifest’s goal, therefore, is to select works that in the truest sense of the word are contemporary masterpieces – works that set the standard of quality that the artist is expected to maintain throughout his or her professional career. The full-color exhibit catalog for this show will serve as a visual documentation of these artists’ own benchmarks for years to come.
      All three of Manifest’s exhibit spaces will be devoted to the Master Pieces 6 exhibition.

      Eligibility: Open to current MFA/MA students or MFA/MA graduates since January 2011.

      Media: Open to all traditional and non-traditional genre and media, including but not limited to: drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, installation, video, etc.

      Please visit our website for more information, entry form and submission of images(online only) A $10.00 non-refundable fee per entry submitted.

      Deadline for entry: November 1, 2012
      Exhibition Dates: December 14, 2012- January 11, 2013.

      We have been inspired by the intensity of jury after jury to narrow down a collection of entries to a suitable exhibit. With this we have determined to push the process to the ultimate limit – from among many to select ONE single work to be exhibited in the Parallel Space at Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati from December 14 through January 11, 2013. This work will be the recipient of the third annual MANIFEST PRIZE, a cash award to a single work selected by our rigorous jury process, and presented in a gallery all to itself as the highlight of the process, an honor to the artist, and a poignant statement for gallery visitors.

      Eligibility: ONE.3 is open to everyone (students and professionals are encouraged to submit).

      Manifest will produce a full-color catalog documenting the work selected for exhibit. The exhibiting artist will receive five free copies and five semi-finalists will receive one free copy of the catalog.

      FOR FORMER STUDENTS OF CHARLES MASSEY, JR.

      “SECRETS”: A Portfolio Exchange by Students of Charles Massey, Jr.

      Charles Massey, Jr. has taught Printmaking at The Ohio State University since 1974. In those 39 years, he has had a profound influence on generations of students, many of whom are still printmakers today.

      In the early 1990′s, the undergraduate students used to joke that Charles had X-ray vision. I think this was because he could look at your edition of prints and (very kindly) point out every flaw in the printing, and the thing of it was, he would be right. He taught us to look at things differently; this was true not only concerning printed things, but also pieces of writing, drawings and ideas. All facets of our creative endeavor were subjected to the same patient scrutiny. As we heard him say many times, “Everything matters”.

      I am proposing that we, his past students, create a trade portfolio as a tribute to this great teacher and printmaker, and to commemorate his many years of tireless dedication to his students. The theme of the portfolio,“Secrets”, is inspired by Charles’s own body of work in printmaking. I look forward to seeing the numerous interpretations that each participant will bring to the project. One of Charles’s many strengths as a teacher is that he always emphasized that each student must explore their own vision, make their own work, and find their own voice. Please interpret the theme to create a print characteristic of your own personal style.

      There is the possibility that each participant will be required to frame ONE print from the edition for display, as we plan to pursue the possibility of exhibiting this portfolio.

      $20 fee to cover shipping and related expenses.

      Edition size: TBD
      I would like to propose that, whatever the edition size turns out to be, we add one and give a set to Charles when we’re done.

      Paper size: 12 x 16”

      Provisional Timeline:
      Email indicating interest in the project: August 2013

      Completed editions: 2014

      Exhibition (s?) 2015

This year, Curator Lance Fung has been re-invited to judge this competition. We at Fung Collaboratives hope to encourage all emerging artists to apply and others to share the link so as many artists possible send in their application. It is easy with only basic information required, 1 image of an artwork you want to enter, and no fee. It is all done online and made as simple as possible so why not try it?

      The Skywards Future Artist Competition began five years ago to fill the void of an Internationally recognize art competition for “emerging artists”. In the first year the artists were limited to the UAE region and a few countries in Europe. The scope of the entires grew with each competition and finally last year was the first year that it truly became global accepting entries from every country. We wish Skywards continued success as there are few competition such as this existing.

      The competition is open to emerging visual artists, architects and designers from anywhere in the world. The four winning artists will each receive US$5,000 and enjoy worldwide exposure. The application process is simple and free.

      Apply here (www.skywardsfutureartists.com). Entry deadline July 23rd, 2013.

      ONE 4: $1000 Cash Award + Solo Exhibit

      December 13, 2013 – January 10, 2014

      With this principle of reduction in mind, we have been inspired by the intensity of jury after jury to narrow down a collection of entries to a suitable exhibit. With this we have determined to push the process to the ultimate limit – from among many to select ONE work to be exhibited in one of our five galleries* from December 13 through January 10, 2014. This work will be the recipient of the fourth annual MANIFEST PRIZE, a cash award of $1000 to a single work selected by our rigorous jury process, and presented in a gallery all to itself as the highlight of the cometitive process, an honor to the artist, and a poignant statement for gallery visitors. * Final space assignment will be determined by Manifest once finalist is selected.

      Tapped 4: Annual Exhibit of Works by Professors and their Current or Former Students

      http://www.manifestgallery.org/tapped/index.html

      Deadline: November 4, 2013

      The relationship between art students and their professors can be a powerful one. Even when this bond is left unstated, we carry our professors’ voices forward in time as we mature as artists and people. We eventually realize that the instruction given by our teachers during our relatively brief careers as students continues to expand within us. We realize that the learning they inspired (or insisted upon) is a chain-reaction process that develops across our lifetime. All of us who have been students carry forward our professors’ legacy in one form or another. And those who are, or have been professors, bear witness to the potency of studenthood.

      Out of respect for this student-teacher bond, and in honor of professors working hard to help their students tap into a higher mind relative to art and life, we offer TAPPED, an annual exhibit that will present works of art by current or former professor/student pairs in our galleries in Cincinnati.

      It is important to note that this project is open to CURRENT or PAST student/professor pairs. The ‘student’ half of the pair may be a college freshman, a retired veteran, or at any stage in between. The sole criteria for the pairing is that the relationship between the two was a formal teacher/student one at some point in time.

      The 9th International Drawing Annual

      Deadline: December 31, 2013

      http://www.manifestgallery.org/inda9/index.html

      The award-winning International Drawing Annual is an extension and merging of Manifest’s Drawing Center, Press, and Gallery programs. Its goal is to support the recognition, documentation, and publication of excellent, current, and relevant works of drawing from around the world.

      A natural question will be “what is drawing?” and that is exactly one question the Annual is meant to investigate from year to year. Furthermore the goal is to ask “what is exceptional drawing?” Therefore submissions are expected to vary, including a range of drawing types, from the most academic to the most experimental, but all with some relevance to the artists’ honest understanding of the practice of “drawing.”

      NOTE: As this is a BOOK project, works that are not otherwise available (i.e. physically) may still be submitted for consideration. All that is required of accepted artists is a print-quality hi-res digital image of accepted works. All participating artists receive a complimentary copy of the finished book.

      “Home” International Call For Artists by ArtAscent – Deadline December 31, 2013

      The competition theme is “Home”. Home can be a building, a room, a space. Home should feel comfortable and safe, a place where you belong. It might be a sanctuary of safety, a group of objects with memories that create a personal space, a country or community of people that share a familiarity, or anywhere your loved ones are. Perhaps simply having a warm bed with a cup of tea, or being able to be emotional honest without pretense is your ‘home sweet home’. Show us what home means to you.

      $100 cash prize for gold winner. 3 winners receive an artist profile feature in ArtAscent Art and Literature Journal. 20 prizes of publication in ArtAscent Art and Literature Journal including links to your website, promotion on ArtAscent website artist directory, and exposure in social media.

      Entries may include 2- and 3-dimensional media, such as paintings, drawings, photography, mixed media, installations, ceramics, jewelry and sculpture.

      Submission deadline: December 31, 2013
      Entries start at $15

      IMPRINT
      An International Competitive Exhibit of Contemporary Printmaking

      Like photography, printmaking is a genre of creative work that is underscored by its processes. Some artists are steadfast traditionalists, anchoring themselves in age-old technical methods. Others push the boundaries of the discipline, exploring just what constitutes ‘printmaking’. For this exhibit Manifest takes a fresh look at the media last featured in season 5. IMPRINT calls to artists to submit works of contemporary printmaking, and will strive to explore the range of methods and results currently being achieved within the bounds of such processes.

      This exhibit has no predefined expectation for type or style of work to be considered or selected. Submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual or experimental. The only criteria beyond excellent quality is that works must feature printmaking as their primary media.

      SYSTEMATIC
      An International Competitive Exhibit of Works By or About Systems

      Deadline: December 9, 2013

      http://www.manifestgallery.org/systematic/index.html

      SYSTEMATIC seeks to collect and examine works of visual art or design which in their form, production, or concept offer insight into the nature and effects of systems. This exhibition concept offers a very wide window through which artists and designers may interpret and apply their work. For this purpose ‘systems’ is being defined loosely as processes or information made up of routines or rules, by which ‘inputs’ are converted into ‘outputs’ through a consistent orderly method.

      For example, works may themselves be products epitomizing systematic processes, may simply be illustrative of such processes (i.e. an image of machines in a factory system), or may be imitations of systematic products or results. Systems may be tangible physical processes, or conceptual/political/philosophical processes.

      The goal is to reveal how such a modern concept such as ‘system’, one which affects so much of our daily lives, shows up in visual art, illustration, or design. It is also to inspire deeper consideration of this fact on the part of the visitors to the exhibition – to reveal the interconnected processes into which they themselves provide fuel, directly or indirectly through participation or consumption.

      This exhibit has no predefined expectation for type or style of work to be considered or selected. Submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual or experimental. The only criteria beyond excellent quality is that works must clearly feature systems as their process, subject, concept, or form.

      Whitdel Arts is currently accepting submissions for The Deep End, a exhibition centering on the physical, emotional and financial effects of mental Illness, mental disorder and mental disease on individuals and society. The effects of mental health encompasses people from all walks of life, regardless of their cultural, social or economical background. The cultural biases, stigmas and stereotypes associated with these topics can impact one’s human rights and dignity. Many times, our understanding and comprehension of mental health is skewed, resulting in misdiagnosis and politically incorrect mockery. These topics have also been associated with recent tragic events and opinions about the pharmaceutical industry.

      Whitdel Arts seeks work that illustrates or reflects upon these topics for The Deep End, to be held in May and June of 2014. All media is welcome. This exhibition was chosen by the members of Whitdel Arts, and will be held at Whitdel Arts in May 2014.

      The Temporary Show – Deadline: Submissions of images and/or proposals must be received by no later than January 10, 2014.
      “Archival.” “Acid-free.” “Neutral pH.” We usually take steps to ensure artwork stands the test of time, but sometimes truly remarkable things only exist for a short while. Let’s call attention to the ephemeral: that of which is temporary, fleeting or transitory. Whitdel Arts is currently accepting submissions and proposals for an exhibition centered around the idea of impermanence. This exhibition will feature artwork that changes over time or explores the concept of ephemera.
      Whitdel Arts welcomes submissions of 2D or 3D pieces in all media. Submissions must focus on the idea of impermanence and ephemeral qualities, so pieces may or may not be site-specific. Artwork may also potentially change/evolve/decay/grow or deteriorate over the course of the exhibition. Proposals for work to be created for this exhibition will also be accepted.

      The Printed World: Artists as Visual Ecologists

      APPLICATION DEADLINE: March 2, 2014

      Overture Galleries | Madison, WI
      Anders Zanichkowsky, Curator

      The Printed World: Artists As Visual Ecologists will feature printmakers who create, populate, and examine environments both real and imagined. Printmaking is the art medium of publication and record; it has been used throughout history to illustrate our knowledge of nature and by artists at the margins of society to empower their ideas. It also encourages a layering and duplication of visual themes which mirror the patterns and cycles in nature. Entries will be selected for their ability to surprise, compel, and beguile the viewer, and for their contributions to the purpose of the exhibition as a whole: To offer new narratives about nature and knowledge.

      http://earthboundmoon.blogspot.com/2014/01/art-without-limits-farther-regions-call.html

      The Texas Tech University School of Art Serial Experiments in Artist-Curated Micro-Exhibitions presents:
      Art Without Limits: Farther Regions
      Curated by Carson Murdach in collaboration with Earthbound Moon

      Artists can get discouraged and their art-making interrupted by practicalities like deadlines, proper studio space, available resources, technology and the biggest heartbreak of all; not enough money. What if an artist was presented with the possibility to create a work of art without these limitations? What if that artist had financial backing, equipment, materials, manpower and experienced technicians ready to take direction and create their vision? What if that artist’s work wasn’t limited by the fact that they live on the planet, Earth, in the year 2014 and are subjected to physical laws?
      Art Without Limits: Farther Regions explores what is possible for artists when they are released from practical, economical and physical constraints. What can be accomplished without limitations of natural laws, moral codes or current technologies? Art Without Limits will give artists resources to execute their dream-projects. Artists often create work that is determined by the walls around them. Art making is often a problem that needs to be solved. We would like to solve that problem. You can create art anywhere in the Universe! Show us your gallery inside of a volcano, your sculpture on top of the Great Pyramids, float your work on top of the largest storm in the solar system or Jupiter’s Great Red Spot. Unbound by the physical realities of the here and now, the sky is not your limit!
      Earthbound Moon seeks proposals from around the nation for fantastically imaginative and absurdly inventive site oriented artworks to be shown at the Landmark Arts Center at Texas Tech University. You have artistic immunity; you have every resource you need. Indulge us!

      The requirements of the Artist proposal are outlined simply as:

      1) CV

      2) Description of the artwork that can be as long or as short as the artist wishes.

      3) Rendering of the theoretical artwork.

      4) Return envelope with return postage

      No entry fee.

Solo exhibitors have included local, regional, and national artists from as far away as New York City, San Francisco, and Hong Kong. It is important to our non-profit operations that each of our seasons of free public exhibits consist of a balanced mix of solo and group thematic projects.

The full-color Manifest Exhibition Annual publication for the season will serve as a visual documentation of these artists’ own benchmarks for years to come. All FIVE of Manifest’s dramatically expanded exhibit spaces will be devoted to the museum-like Master Pieces 8 exhibition.

      REALLY BIG PRINTS !! Steamroller Printing @UW Manitowoc
      Steamroller Prints!! at UW-Manitowoc, July 21 – 25, 2014
      REALLY BIG PRINTS!! A “Steamroller Printmaking Event” organized by Berel Lutsky – UW Manitowoc, Ben Rinehart – Lawrence University, the Rahr-West Art Museum and the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum

      The City of Manitowoc has graciously donated the use of the steamroller for a special 5-day printmaking event in late July 2014 and agreed to mount an exhibit of the prints at the city’s Rahr-West Art Museum. Artists are invited to prepare and bring a large-scale relief matrix and print an edition of large relief prints. Accomodations are available in town or, you and your team can camp on the UW-Manitowoc grounds. Some materials will be provided during the event. The culmination of this project will be an exhibition of the prints at the Rahr West Art Museum for the month of August 2014 and then at the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum.

      Details for the Event
      Dates: A maximum of 45 artists can be accommodated. Printing dates are July 21 – 25, 2014 (the 28th and 29th can be added if need be.) We will be printing under tents set up in the parking lot of the UW-Manitowoc campus. Inside studio space will be available for paper prep, print drying and print storage. Steamroller will be available from sun-up to sun-down each day. Prep work/clean-up can continue as early or late as need be. Exhibit opening will be on Sunday, August 10, 1:00 – 4:00 pm.

      Image/Paper Size: A block measuring 36” x 60” x .75” (maximum size) must be used for printing. Paper will be cut to the exact size of the blocks + 2” to facilitate easier printing and display of the prints. Blocks smaller than 36” x 60” will need shims to hold them in the template. Each person is responsible for their matrix/matrices. Any blocks with a non-standard thickness (larger than .75”) must be cleared with the event organizer in advance. We are asking each participant to have their matrix nearly complete upon arrival for quicker turn around. Printing schedule will be arranged so that several teams will be working at a time. Some help will be available, but plan to bring along enough hands to help you print.

      Ink & Paper: Black Ink and possibly some colors and some paper will be available for the final prints and proofing. Details of available papers and ink will be provided to participants as they become available. If you will have other paper/ink that you would like to use for the edition, please be prepared to bring it along. Some large rollers, ink modifiers, clean up materials, slip sheets and a print drying set-up will be provided for the duration of the event.

      Edition Size: We anticipate that an edition of least five prints will be created per participant. One print will be donated for the purpose of the exhibition and for archives.

      T-Shirt: Matrix and ink will be provided, bring your own shirts.

      Exhibition: One print from each participant will be donated and showcased in an exhibition at the Rahr West Art Museum in Manitowoc, Wisconsin August 2014. Prints will be hung “au naturel” using magnets. The prints will then move to the display area of the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum, Two Rivers WI, where they will stay through the close of the annual Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum “Wayzgoose” conference in early November. The print used for the shows will become the property of the organizers and may be used for future exhibitions. Please let us know if your institution or affiliation is interested in hosting an exhibition.

      Participant Registration
      The Registration Form must be filled out and sent to the organizers for each participant in advance of the event. This will be considered a statement of your interest in participation. Confirmation of your participation must be complete by June 1, 2014, to enable the scheduling of your printing session. Each participant should receive their scheduled printing times by June 8. We are planning for a maximum of 45 slots, participation and scheduling will be on a “first come first served basis.”

      Travel & Accommodations

      6th Annual Nude- The Uncovered Human Form

      Deadline: June 27, 2014

      http://www.manifestgallery.org/nude

      Through all the permutations art has experienced across history, work of the body persists. We use the human nude to master skill, understand ourselves, and push social and psychological buttons for the sake of expression (sensual, delicate, aggressive, and so on). We intend for Manifest’s ongoing annual NUDE project to explore how our collective body is used today in art to achieve these goals and more.

      Call-for-Entries: We just want to make things.

      https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bx0ib2UdDqMBTkZLOTJLOXBuNUk/edit?usp=sharing

      Deadline: July 12, 2014

      This exhibition aims to present work in all mediums that have been influenced by printmaking and the way in which a printmaker’s mind thinks. Printmaking has many unique features to its long history. It is very labor intensive and a somewhat tedious way to make work. It is all backwards. These techniques and the natural tendency to think in layers also manifest themselves in other objects printmakers create.

      Let’s show just how important and adaptable the ideas of printmaking really are. It may at first be deceiving, as printmakers are many times associated with paper, ink and perfect registration. However, after spending time and a little bit of thinking, the ideas of printmaking will start to surface.

      Sometimes as a printmaker, we just want to make things.

      Call-For-Entries: Day of the Dead Offering to Santo, El Enmascarado de Plata

      View the call here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bx0ib2UdDqMBSXhuQXV1WEVvSlE/edit?usp=sharing

      Rodolfo Guzmán Huerta, a professional wrestler known as Santo, starred in several movies in the lucha libre genre between 1958 and 1984, becoming an iconic figure for generations in Mexico, Latin America and the United States. The performances by this masked hero mirrored the aspirations of the less-privileged classes in which they could see themselves as protagonists in a struggle to survive the contradictions and inequities in contemporary society. This exhibition will explore the unique nature of the lucha libre film genre to stage and represent popular values and attitudes. In the United States, Latino communities have turned the Day of the Dead into a public celebration of Latino cultures, a ritual of rebellion & hope, a venue to create art reflecting on collective experiences.

      This exhibition will be held at Whitdel Arts in November and December of 2014.

      $1000 Best in Show
      Deadline: August 26, 2014
      http://www.manifestgallery.org/here

      Neither HERE nor THERE is a competitive international exhibition of photographic works exploring the theme of location. Works selected will represent location by virtue of their creation in a particular place, regardless of subject matter. They may or may not also represent ordinary everyday things, events, places, ideas, or such subjects in a transitional context.

      This exhibit has no predefined expectation for type or style of work to be considered or selected. Submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental, including traditional, digital, and other photographic methods. The only criteria beyond excellent quality (image/presentation) is that works must qualify as being primarily photographic, including that which tests the boundaries of the discipline.

      All of us or None: Reponses and Resistance to Militarism–http://afsc.org/poster

      From Ferguson to Gaza, we can see the way that militarism has a direct impact on the lives of all of us.

      Militarism refers to physically violent and coercive ways of settling conflict or maintaining control what we see in the everyday actions of armed security forces such as the military, militia, police, border enforcement, and school security.

      But do militarist policy decisions actually keep our communities safe and secure? What if we instead invested in the things that help communities, countries, and the globe thrive?

      Help us change the way people think about safety and security—and about the tools that should be used to achieve them.

      Create a poster-
      We need graphic artists, printmakers, street artists, comic artists, and other print-based visual artists who are interested in creating unique posters for a traveling exhibit.

      Submissions should explore:

      Militarism’s negative effects on your community, your country, or the globe
      Ideas for active resistance to militarism
      Alternative approaches, new projects, or manifestos that seek to achieve lasting peace and justice

      Submission guidelines-
      Submit your poster on or before Dec. 15, 2014.

      Each submission must include:

      Digital image of poster of sized 8.5” x 11” or 22” x 28” (300-600 ppi; TIFF or best resolution JPG; maximum 50MB)
      A 250-word artist’s statement
      A bio, maximum of 250 words
      Artists may submit more than one work.

      Terms and conditions-
      Jurors will select an initial set of work to be the core of a nationally traveling exhibit.

      AFSC will print and professionally display the chosen work in our traveling exhibit.

      AFSC will display the chosen work on our website and make it available for free digital download to the public.

      The exhibit website will identify each poster by artist, title of piece, short description, and your website if you so choose.

      By participating in this project, artists are donating their work to AFSC to use in the traveling exhibit, in digital replicas of the work available for download for free, in informational brochures, and on the web. Work will be fully credited to the artists, with contact information included.

      Selected artists will receive a $50 honorarium and a print copy of the catalog of the traveling exhibit.
