Cloth Paper Scissors® 2011 Calendar Contest

Deadline: March 1, 2010 (RECEIVE)

Cloth Paper Scissors® 2011 Calendar Contest
“Make It Pretty!”

Stow, MA

We’re looking for some pretty mixed-media art for the Cloth Paper Scissors 2011 Calendar: pretty funny, pretty unusual, pretty inspiring—or just plain pretty! Each month and the cover will feature a piece of 12” x 12” artwork by one of you, our readers. The 13 winning entries (the cover and 12 months) will receive a prize package worth $200.

How it works (truncated)

•Create up to two original, not previously published, 12” x 12” square, pieces of mixed-media artwork based on the theme of “Make it Pretty!” Each piece of art must be 12” x 12”, with a depth (height when laid flat) of no more than 2” and the entire submission, including packaging, must weigh no more than 5 lbs. The artwork should also be sturdy enough to be wrapped and shipped for display at various quilt and textile shows with Cloth Paper Scissors.

•Although we welcome all mixed-media styles, each entry should be of original design, created for this challenge, and fit the theme.

•Submit three 8” x 10” photographs of each submission, one of the full piece and two detail shots.

•Along with your photos, please include a brief narrative explaining your interpretation of our theme, “Make it Pretty!”, as well as the methods and materials used in your artwork.

•Deadline for entry: Monday, March 1, 2010. Please note that this is a receive-by date. Your photos and descriptions must be in our office no later than March 1st.
