After the overwhelming response to our March issue last year, The Artist’s Magazine is bringing “Splendid over 60” back for an encore. If you (or someone you know) are a fabulous artist 60 or older, we want to know!
Feel free to nominate yourself—we won’t think you’re conceited! (But please don’t have all your friends, relatives and neighbors e-mail us. This isn’t a popularity contest—we only need your name once for you to be in the running.)
And because our intention is to showcase artists unfamiliar to us, we ask those artists who were among the 2008 crop of “Splendid over 60” and/or have had their work featured in The Artist’s Magazine within the last three years to give others a chance.
How to enter: Send five to 10 images (on a CD, as slides, or visible on a website) and the artist’s name, birth date and contact information (e-mail, phone and/or mailing address). We regret that we can only return materials if they are accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Do not, under any circumstances, send the only existing copies of your slides or prints!
Note that we will request high-res digital images, slides or transparencies from the artists selected for publication. For judging purposes, Web-quality images are OK.
The deadline for nominations is October 1, 2008.
E-mail your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail it to:
Artists over 60
The Artist’s Magazine
4700 E. Galbraith Road
Cincinnati OH 45236
We ask, too, that you please refrain from calling or e-mailing us to check if we received your submission; we cannot respond to every submission (last year we received more than 600 entries).
We will get in touch with the selected artists by the end of October. Finally, make sure to read the March 2009 issue of The Artist’s Magazine to see who makes the cut!
