Sophie's Postcard for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity

City:

Eligibility:

#sophiespostcard Call for artists is now open - Artworks will be added to sophiespostcard.com and shared on social media as they arrive.

St Richard’s Catholic College’s postcard-sized art fundraising sale, #sophiespostcard is taking place for the third time during Summer 2022. Since 2018, the school has raised over £46,000 for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. #sophiespostcard is in memory of former pupil, Sophie Maria Taylor, who was cared for by The Royal Marsden but lost her life to cancer on 5th April 2017.

#sophiespostcard is a secret auction consisting of original postcard-sized artworks, made and donated by professional artists, designers and illustrators, plus up-and-coming artists from St Richard’s Catholic College and the general public. As the auction is secret and bidders don’t know which artist’s work they’re bidding on, part of the fun is trying to recognise the signature style of the hand that drew the artwork.

St Richard’s Catholic College is extremely grateful to have received enormous support from hundreds of artists, printmakers and designers who have contributed so many incredible works of art over the years. Previous donated artworks included world famous artists and printmakers such as: Sir Quentin Blake, Axel Scheffler, BP Portrait Award winner Susanne du Toit, Laura Quinn Harris, Ian Murphy, Jennifer Anderson, Loui Jover, Carne Griffiths, Kate Brinkworth, Matthew Burrows, Luke Martineau, Bob and Roberta Smith, Mark Curryer, Richard Spare, John Dilnot and Rebecca Denton.

Author and illustrators who have taken part include: Thomas Taylor, Liz Pichon, Dame Jacqueline Wilson, Jamie Smart, Rosalind Monks, Jane Porter, Riken Parekh, Tracey English and those with talents better known in other fields such as Harry Hill and Fearne Cotton.

#sophiespostcard offers collectors and first-time buyers the chance to purchase unique works of art by leading figures from the art and cultural world or perhaps by a Year 7 pupil. All postcards have a starting bid of just £1 and are auctioned on eBay, making it accessible to buyers around the globe.

All artworks have a reserve bid of just £1

The 37th Annual Made in California Juried Exhibition

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

About Made in California at the Brea Gallery

This annual juried exhibit showcases artwork from all over the state of California. MICA strives to highlight artists in all stages of their careers and offers them a chance to compete for a number of awards, including the coveted solo show opportunity. This regional show features artwork from an extensive variety of mediums and explores creative movements happening in California.

The Solo Show opportunity offered during MICA is a chance for artists to have their own solo exhibition in the Gallery that would run concurrent to the greater Made in California Juried Exhibition, and would include a separate title wall, show card, and a $350 cash prize. To enter, an artist must submit a cohesive body of work of between 5 and 10 pieces, along with an artist statement for the jurors, for a flat rate of $80. Meaning an artist can submit up to 10 pieces for just $80, rather than for $20 each for individual juried entries (a $200 value). Additionally, if an artist’s body of work is not selected for the solo show, each piece will then be considered individually by the jurors for the greater juried exhibition and would be eligible for all of the other awards (First, Second, etc.), so the work will be considered twice for the flat rate of $80.

Eligibility

Open to all living artists ages 18 and up, residing in California. All entries must be original, completed in the past three years, and not previously shown at the Brea Gallery. All mediums are welcome.

Prize summary: 
$2,500 in cash prizes will be awarded
Prizes Details: 

First Place: $750, Second Place: $500, Third Place: $250, Solo Show: $350, Director’s Choice: $200, Mayor’s Choice: $100, Staff Picks: $100 each, Popular Choice: $100. Honorable mentions and additional awards to be announced.

Seeking Prose, Poetry and Artwork on the Theme of Hospitals

Artistic field:

Country:

Eligibility:

The A3 Review is looking for poems, short stories, mini-essays, comics, illustrations, etc inspired by Hospitals.

Deadline is 25th of April, 2020.

We welcome short stories, flash fiction, poetry, comics, graphic stories, a snippet of memoir, photographs, illustrations, and any combination of the above. The only restriction is a word-limit of 150 and images should fit well into an A6 postcard-sized panel.

Some ideas for inspiration: Work inspired by hospital buildings, for example, and their public phones and car parks. Or the view from a hospital window. Consider the small things, too. The surgeon's tools, the items on a tray of food, those small acts of kindness. Write a praise song to nurses. Write about ways to pass the time in hospital and the memories those activities evoke. You could tell the story of being rushed to hospital or escaping from one. The first time you had stitches. An encounter in a waiting room. The second time you had stitches. Write about hospital food and hospital beds, sanitation and hygiene, humour and coldness. Take inspiration from Marianne Boruch’s “Hospital” and consider what it's like to watch hospital staff doing their work. 

Prizes Details: 

Publication and cash prizes.
