INPA 9: International Painting Annual
By Manifest Creative Research Gallery

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

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 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.

Artworks are not required to be for sale in order to be included in our exhibitions. Manifest Gallery will retain a commission of 30% of the sale price on all artwork sold during the exhibition.
