Combined Talents: The Florida International

Deadline: Febuary 14, 2008 (POSTMARK)


Florida State University Museum of Fine Arts
August 25 to September 21, 2008

Combined Talents: The Florida International is an annual competition open to all media. This competition, organized by Florida State University Museum of Fine Arts, is juried by a panel of art and art history faculty from within the College of Visual Arts, Theatre and Dance.

Rules of Entry

Artists are eligible to submit works without regard to sex, race, creed or national origin. Artists must be 18 years of age or older (current FSU SVAD faculty or students may not enter). All media is eligible for consideration including 2D, 3D and Video based media.

The Museum does not impose size restraints, however see Shipping Exceptions for further details. Work must be original and prepared for exhibition (i.e. ready for mounting or other appropriate installation).

Method of Selection

The competition is juried by a panel of 2-4 faculty members from the Florida State University College of Visual Arts, Theatre and Dance.

Jurors select works based on their own merit and must agree the artist demonstrates skill within the chosen medium.

Entry Fee

$20.00 entry fee with a maximum of two (2) works per person.


Digital images or slides will be accepted, but digital images are preferred and must be in either jpeg or tiff format. No SASE is necessary - NEITHER SLIDES NOR CD'S WILL RETURNED.

Special Exhibition Requirements

Any special exhibition requirements MUST BE submitted in writing accompanying the entry.

If an installation work wins entry the Museum of Fine Arts sets the following conditions:

1) The artist must be willing to deliver and install the work or provide specific installation instructions. If the artist chooses to deliver and install, he/she is then responsible for the de-installation and pick-up of the work the week following the close of the exhibition at his or her own travel expense.

2) The installation, if equipped with electronic functions, must be set up by the artist to be viewer activated or be able to run continually for 7 hours daily. Such lengths of time present problems of wear and tear on an artist's machinery and should be considered before submitting an entry with electrical or mechanical components. All equipment must be provided by the artist, unless otherwise arranged with the Museum.


The jurors select the award winners from the actual works of art, after the exhibition has been installed.

First Place: $1,000.00
Second Place: $500.00


A color catalog is produced, and all artists who enter will receive a copy. Accepted artists will each receive 10 copies of the catalog.


The Museum does not take a commission on works sold as a result of the exhibition. Potential purchasers will be referred directly to the artist.
