CURRENT COMPETITION THEME:

ABSTRACT

 

This competition is open to any abstract themed artistic medium that can be encapsulated in a singular picture/jpeg format. Open to creative interpretation, but a good guideline for this submission is, can your artwork be displayed on a conventional gallery wall or in a single gallery room? If your submission fits these two loose criteria, it is most likely welcome in this Abstract Competition. This first competition will be juried by a handful of anonymous, hand-picked International working artists and curators that will be disclosed when the winners are announced. I thought this would be a nice change of pace and will function to deter artists from trying to tailor their submission to any specific juror's artistic taste. Submit only the work that you like best!

Artworks will be judged based on creativity, interpretation, originality, quality of work, composition, and overall artistic ability.

Through this (and future) competitions, artists will be competing to win 1st, 2nd, 3rd and Honorable Mention levels of Cash Prizes and Certificates. Winners work and personal website link will also be displayed on the Past Competition Winners page for them to link to and reference. Your work will automatically be entered into a pool of artists to keep in mind for future exhibition opportunities with galleries and curators that I have a relationship with and will be developing relationships with. Competitions will be evolving and working up to providing specific competition winners, as well as artists from this pool, with Solo, Two-Person, and small Group Gallery Exhibition Opportunities in a handful of exciting new and established galleries in Los Angeles.

ENTRY DEADLINE: Please submit all images and payments by January 31st, 2019 to enter this competition.

Fragmented Call for Submissions

Share

Category:

Type:

Fragmented art, whether it be collages, abstracts, splintered art, or fractured art allows the viewer to see what the artist sees, in pieces woven together in a mosaic to narrate a story or a perception. It’s an abstract way of thinking, breaking down perspective into finite relative pieces. It makes no sense at first, and yet, it makes the ultimate sense. In this international art call we are asking for the artist’s interpretation of fragmented art.

DEADLINE FOR THIS OPEN ART CALL: JANUARY 7, 2019

Art calls are open to all local, domestic, national and international professional and amateur artists. All art mediums will be considered in this call for submissions, from photography, wall sculpture, ceramics, fabric, mixed media, all paintings and drawings including, oil, acrylic, pastels, ink, graphite, etc.

Cost: $35 for 3 entries, $5 for additional entries.

Category:

Type:

DEADLINE FOR THIS CALL FOR ARTISTS: January 28, 2019

Art calls are open to all local, domestic, national and international professional and amateur artists.

Blur Art Call

Share

Category:

Type:

Movement in visual art is actually very hard to depict. Motion is not something given to the flat medium. However, when we are able to represent motion it tends to blur or flutter. Our human brains can interpret it in a visceral way, sweetly. In this art call please create motion, blur, or gesture to show the challenge of movement.

Art calls are open to all local, domestic, national and international professional and amateur artists. All art mediums will be considered in this call for submissions, from photography, wall sculpture, ceramics, fabric, mixed media, all paintings and drawings including, oil, acrylic, pastels, ink, graphite, etc.

Cost: $35 for 3 entries, $5 for additional entries.

Organisation: Liedts-Meesen Foundation

The professional jury is composed of:

The Liedts-Meesen Foundation, Jean-Marie Dallet (Artist, research professor at the Université Paris 8), Stef Van Bellingen (Consultant for Zebrastraat / Artistic leader VZW Warp), Paul Dujardin (Artistic Director Bozar), Nick Ervinck (artist, winner of the update_2 public award), Yves Bernard (Artistic Director iMal), Alain Thibault (Artistic Director Elektra), Ralph Dum (Scientific officer and senior expert of the European Commission) and Karen Helmerson (Program Director for Electronic Media, Film & Visual Art at the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA)).

Zebrastraat

During the last few years, Zebrastraat Ghent has developed into a stimulating knowledge centre with a strong interest in art. Every two years we organize a biennial called update_, and the New Technological Art Award (NTAA) contest, which tries to fill in a gap in the mainstream art world, by paying attention to the technological developments that drive our global culture. NTAA selects and presents creations in which the culture-forming role of technology occupies a central place. Low or high tech, intuitive or experimental, the creations always draw our attention to actual innovative trends. The exhibition of achievements of the selected winners is a compass that orients you to the relevant temporal and resilient use of technology in the artistic sector.

The mission of NTAA

NTAA’s mission is to expand the scope of contemporary artistic creations and traditional media with works using contemporary and new technologies in an original and intelligent way: treatment of sounds and light, use of new media, application of innovative evolutions in communications, telecommunications and broadcasting, centered on the world of information, communication, and computers and interaction. These descriptions are in no way restrictive and should be interpreted in the broadest way possible.

General guidelines for entry in the NTAA competition

The aim of the competition is to present works in accordance with NTAA's mission. The submitted work may have been exhibited previously, but the jury reserves the right to exclude creations that turn out to be not realizable within the limits of the practical possibilities of the Liedts-Meesen Foundation, keeping in mind that the works will be displayed during the exhibition. The basic equipment is available and at the disposal of the selected artists; specific and special equipment must be provided for and lent by the artists for the duration of the exhibition. This international competition is open to all age groups and to all nationalities. Artists can present their candidacy for one art work less than two years old at the time of its submission, but which may already have been exhibited. English is the working language. There is no artist fee. Free accommodation for the artists is available in Zebrastraat. The 20 projects selected by the jury will be rendered public at the website in June 2019.

Prize

A cash award of 5,000 euro will be allocated to a work and to its creator. Moreover, the jury reserves the right to award an honorable mention to an artist. The Liedts-Meesen Foundation and the jury reserve the right to not award the prize and to transfer it to the next exhibition. There will also be a public prize and a prize of the European Commission. The winners will be announced at the final day of the exhibition.
