I don’t have a final number yet, but we have definitely surpassed last year’s total of 600 submissions. It’s been incredible going through all the art our readers sent us—we even had to bring back our screener judge from the Annual Art Competition for another round to help us out!
Because of the great response, we can only contact those artists whom we want to feature in the magazine. The winners will hear from us by the end of October. Make sure to watch for the March 2009 issue to see all the great art from artists over 60!
