Winners will be featured prominently in the March 2013 issue of The Artist’s Magazine and on the website.
Extended Deadline: October 1, 2012
Artist’s birth date must be on or before December 31, 1952. The contest is open to all artists working in all traditional art media (please, no digital art or photography). Artists can live in the U.S. and abroad. All works must be original. “Original” means that the work must be from the hand of a single artist; pieces that originate from a workshop or a class under the direction of a teacher are not eligible. For works based on reference photographs, eligibility demands that the artist must have taken the photographs or have obtained written permission from the photographer. Compositions based on published material or other artists’ work are NOT considered original and are not eligible. No entrant can win more than one prize. Artists whose work has appeared in The Artist’s Magazine in the last five years are not eligible. Employees or associates of F+W Media, Inc., or their immediate families may not enter. The Artist’s Magazine reserves the right to reject work deemed unsuitable for publication or that does not meet above criteria.
