A few nationally juried art competitions have deadlines coming up this week! Check it out:
Deadline: Sunday, August 15, 2010
Dedicated to the inspiration, celebration and encouragement of Women in the Arts. Up to 50 artists will be selected as competition finalists and be invited to exhibit work selected from their entries at Southwest Gallery in Dallas, Texas, October 9, 2010. The show of National Juried Competition finalists will also be posted on our website www.americanwomenartists.org and the gallery website www.swgallery.com.
It is our intention to choose the very best art in terms of composition, technique and overall excellence regardless of style or medium. Selected work will include a very broad range from contemporary abstraction to impressionism to extremely tight realism. Our only goal is excellence, no matter how it is expressed. Whimsical work may be included as well as extremely serious statement. We feel that the final show will be elegant, very well rounded and include a wide range of artistic expression.
Deadline: Wednesday, August 18, 2010
The Redwood Forest Foundation is proud to sponsor this exciting new art and photo competition whose purpose is to display the beauty and the plight of forests throughout the United States. Your entry may represent any aspect of the forest or forestry industry in any area of the United States and will be judged within any of the nine regions displayed on the Contest Map. The competition is open to all artists and photographers, professional or amateur. Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals will be awarded in each of the art and photo categories along with several thousand dollars in cash awards. There is also a “Paint The Redwoods Award” within Region 5 (all Paint The Redwoods entries are automatically entered in the Artist Category). Images may depict scenery, logging, restoration, examples of egregious practices, beneficial aspects of forestry management or anything to do with the forest flora and fauna.
