The Tallahassee International

Annual Juried Competition
Florida State University Museum of Fine Arts
August 23 to September 26, 2010

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

Rules of Entry (truncated)
  • 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 CVATD faculty or students may not enter).
  • All media is eligible for consideration.
  • The Museum does not impose size restraints.
  • Work must be original and prepared for exhibition.
  • Work will be insured from the time of arrival at the museum through return transit.

Entry Fee
There is a $20.00 entry fee. A maximum of two (2) works per person may be submitted. Digital images or slides will be accepted.

Method of Selection
The competition is juried by a panel of 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. Selections are made from the digital images, so it is imperative that quality images be provided to insure fair judging. Jurors and the FSU Museum reserve the right to reject, upon arrival, any work of unacceptable craftsmanship and quality not discernible in the image.

The jurors select the award winners from the actual works of art, after the exhibition has been installed. The First Place winner will receive $1,000.00 and the Second Place winner will receive $500.00. A color catalog is produced, and all artists who enter will receive a copy. Accepted artists will each receive a set of 12 complimentary catalogs. The Museum does not take a commission on works sold as a result of the exhibition. Interested buyers will be referred directly to the artist.
