A hardbound showcase of the best in mixed-media expression
Introducing the first-ever competition book from North Light Books entirely devoted to the best of mixed-media.
artwork eligibility With the excitement that results from the power of positive creative intention, we have selected “dreams realized” as a theme for this premier edition. If your artwork is selected for inclusion in this inspiring collection, we will ask you to share with us, how your art reflects your “dreams realized”. This might refer to the level of growth you’ve experienced with the work, or to ways in which your work has inspired others, or to a direct representation of something you set out to accomplish and did so. These interpretations can refer to any part of the art-making process from subject matter to composition, to technique or tools used. We will be looking for quality work in a wide variety of mixed-media styles and categories including painting, collage, assemblage, jewelry, fiber art, book arts, mosaics and more.
submissions 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.
Tonia Davenport and 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.
