September 26, 2011 (POSTMARK)

500 Paper Objects
Lark Crafts

Asheville, NC
Publishing Opportunity

Juror: Gene McHugh, Kress Fellow, Whitney Museum of American Art

Lark Crafts seeks images to publish a juried collection of paper objects. Each piece must prominently feature paper. Materials other than paper may be included, but paper must be the focus and should occupy roughly 80% of the piece. The collection will feature a wide variety of techniques (ex: origami, kirigami, folding, tearing, cutting, stitching, quilling, papier mache, casting) and forms (sculpture, installations, jewelry, fashion, wall pieces, vessels, toys, etc.) with a wide variety of textures and colors. All paper forms will be considered, and we welcome up to four submissions per artist.

We can only accept high-quality digital images (no slides or transparencies). There is no entry fee. Artists will receive full acknowledgment within the book, one complimentary copy, and discounts on the purchase of additional books. Artists retain copyright of their work.

NOTE: Pay close attention to the photographic requirements. Submissions that do not meet the requirements will not be considered.

Entries must be postmarked by September 26, 2011.

Important: Lark Crafts will only publish photos of entries containing text and images that are free of copyright or for which the artist (or approved institution) holds copyright.

All visuals submitted must represent work that is original in design. Please choose work that reflects the book’s concept. A maximum of four entries per artist is allowed. An entry may consist of no more than two visuals: an overall shot and one detail (or alternate view). All entries must be mailed in the same packet. We do not accept e-mailed submissions.

As this is a gallery book, we can’t stress enough the importance of excellent quality images. We strongly recommend having professional photography done to best showcase your work.

We prefer images of pieces that have not been published previously, and please do NOT submit images of pieces that have been published in any Lark book. Recent work is strongly preferred.
