A hardbound showcase of the best in mixed media art expression
DEADLINE: November 1, 2013
DEADLINE EXTENDED: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2013
Brilliant color is everywhere. It’s in the shades of green on spring trees. It’s the mix of a variety of vegetables in a fresh-from-the-garden meal. It’s the multitude of paint or marker colors you keep in your studio. Color expresses our moods and our passions.
With these considerations in mind, the North Light mixed media team decided to dedicate the second edition of Incite, The Best of Mixed Media to the best of color! So, what role does color play in your life? In your art?
We’re looking for the best mixed media art that shows off your Color Passions. Whether it’s the technique you use to create color or a piece showing off your favorite color, we want to see it. And because we’re looking for the best of mixed media, we’re looking for entries in a variety of categories from fiber arts to encaustic, painting to art journaling, Zentangle® to collage to assemblage and more. If your art is selected you’ll be asked to explain why you work in the color palette you do and/or what emotional/symbolic meaning color has for you.
All work must be submitted digitally, either online or via CD ROM/DVD. The latter must be labeled with your name and address and be accompanied by a color printout of the images. For judging purposes, images must be high quality, in RGB color mode, JPEG format, and 72dpi. All file names must be labeled as: last name, first name, entry number (should correspond to the number on the entry form), [dot] file extension type (jpeg) with no spaces, additional punctuation or special characters. (Example: Davenport.Tonia3.jpg). Disks will not be returned.
The Mixed-Media editorial staff of North Light Books will review all submissions. Art will be selected on the basis of general quality as well as suitability for this particular edition.
Enter online or use the downloadable entry form. If entering offline, the form must be completed and submitted along with your artwork, postmarked by
November 1, 2013 FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2013. Keep a copy of the entry form for yourself—we may refer to it in future correspondence.
The early-bird fee is $25.00 for the first submission and $20.00 for each additional submission. If you are paying by check or money order please make them payable in U.S. funds to F+W Media, Inc. Entry fees are non-refundable.
