Calling All Artists! Submissions Needed

Aug 19, 2010

Art Museum ExhibitAs an amateur photographer, I know how hard it can be for an up-and-coming artist to get their foot in the door. To succeed, you have got to get your name and your work out there to as many people as possible. One great way to do this is by entering juried shows and exhibitions.

How do you find such events? Well, I'm glad you asked because I have heard about four different shows in just the past month! Check them out:

Sunnyslope Art Walk
Submission Deadline: September 10, 2010
Accepted Media: Original works of art
Submission Fee: $20 before August 20th, $25 after August 20th
Event Dates: Saturday, October 9th, 2010, 5:00-9:00pm
*All work must be for sale*

Arizona State Fair

Submission Deadline: September 15, 2010 for Fine Art, September 22 for Photography
Accepted Media: Paintings, Drawings, Sculpture, Mixed Media, Photography
Submission Fee: $8.00 per section
Event Dates: October 15 - November 10, 2010

Arizona Artists Guild
Submission Deadline: September 17, 2010
Accepted Media: Two and three-dimensional original art (sculpture, photography, paintings, etc)
Submission Fee: $35 per entry (Non-AAG members)
Event Dates: November 6 - November 30, 2010
*All work must be for sale*

Phoenix Public Library @Central Gallery
Submission Deadline: Friday, October 15, 2010
Accepted Media: Any form including Sculpture, Painting, Photography, and Mixed Media
Submission Fee: $15
Event Dates: 10 weeks TBA 2011
*Sales encouraged*

All of these different shows do require that entrants be at least 18 years of age or older to enter. Additionally, many of them require that the work submitted has not been displayed or shown before. In the interest of fairness, many of the organizations above (with the exception of the Sunnyslope Art Walk) request that if your work is accepted, that you wait at least 2 years before submitting again. This gives others a chance to have their work displayed as well.

Whatever medium you choose to work in, there are opportunities out there waiting for you. So get out there and try your best! You never know, the next exhibit or even could be the break you have been looking for.
