Annual Call for Themed Submissions: Studio Art as Symbolism in pastels or charcoal on paper/other.
2021 Theme: “Proverb”
Images may be representational or abstract and may be the product of any creative process or technique.
Interpret the theme in its broadest sense. Images should be previously unpublished and not available to an image search on the internet. Artists should include a single representative image with the submission. Submission of additional images to be considered may be made available to O:JA&L through a link to an online portfolio or gallery. O:JA&L art editors will assume that images provided through the link meet guidelines and that permission is granted by the submitter to select and publish any images from the linked portfolio/gallery. Each image should specify title, series (if any), medium, size, and completion date. Links to commercial site where images are available for purchase are welcome.
Follow other general guidelines that may apply. Use a cover letter that contains all contact information and include a professional biography of up to 50 words. Simultaneous submissions are accepted with the understanding that notice to O:JA&L will be prompt if a piece is accepted elsewhere. To ensure processing by the correct editors, the subject line or cover letter should include the words “Annual Call for Submissions: Print-making.”
Expedited evaluation of your submission is available for an optional fee.
Editors may nominate submissions accepted in this category for the annual O:JA&L Art Prize.
Category opens January 1. Category closes December 1.
