International Deadline: August 8, 2018 –Manifest
Creative Research Gallery announces a call for artists worldwide to
enter our International Painting Annual, a juried Annual publication of
works of recent contemporary painting.
As this is a BOOK project, works that are not otherwise available
(i.e. physically) may be submitted for consideration. All that is
required of accepted artists is a print-quality hi-res digital image of
accepted works. All artists selected for inclusion receive a
complimentary copy of the finished book.
Launched in 2010, the International PAINTING Annual (INPA) is a
product of the non-profit Manifest Press, and a complementary project to
the award-winning International Drawing Annual project (INDA) which was
launched in 2005 and the award-winning International Photography Annual
(INPHA) launched in 2012. The goal of the INPA is to support the
recognition, documentation, and publication of excellent, current, and
relevant works of painting from around the world. As a carefully crafted
peer-juried book, the INPA enables Manifest to assemble a diverse array
of works from around the world, without the limitation of physical
availability, gallery space, or shipping logistics.
The International Painting Annual is open to any artist submitting
original works of art or design created within the past three plus years
(2015 – 2018). Artists, designers, illustrators, and creative visual
artists in ALL disciplines are encouraged to submit. Manifest is eager
to receive works of painting in a wide range of applications.
Open to any media applicable to the practice of painting including but
by no means limited to traditional painting media. Printmaking,
digital/new media, photography, sculpture, drawing, installation, etc.,
are all possibly valid.
ESSAYS and other painting-related wr itings
Manifest calls for scholarly, critical, and creative writing for
publishing it each of its three publication projects. Information about
this can be viewed here.
First, Second, and Third Place awards for works of painting
will be decided by the jury committee. Each award winner will have a
brief artist’s statement included in the publication. There will be
three cash prizes of $1200, $500, and $300 for first, second, and third
place winners… see more
JURY & CURATOR
Manifest’s selection process involves a complex two-part system. This
project will be juried by a 9-12 member panel of professional and
academic volunteer advisors with a broad range of expertise. The jury
will then pass along their scores to the project curator who will
assemble the final selections from the jury-approved pool.
Each artist/author selected for inclusion in the INPA will
receive one softcover complimentary copy of the publication. In 2011,
the INDA 5 was awarded a national silver medal award from the
Independent Publishers Association in their New York City ceremony, and
in 2013 the INPHA 1 received a bronze medal award in the same ceremony,
as did the INDA 8 in 2015. Manifest’s books are distributed to
bookstores and university libraries across the country, including museum
bookstores, and are available through Amazon.com as well as at Manifest
Gallery and on the Manifest website. Arts patrons, artists, professors,
and art students around the world collect our publications. The books
are offered at an academic discount to professors, students, and
institutions of learning around the world.
An online International Painting Annual Resource will be published to accompany the printed Annual.
$40 for up to three entries submitted. $10 per each additional entry. Fees are non-refundable. Number of entries is unlimited.
Visit Manifest Gallery online to Apply. The online submission is required.
SALE OF ARTWORK
