New Online Arts Magazine Looking for Submissions from Artists

I am placing a call for artists for a new online arts magazine I am launching in June.

 

The name of the magazine is Imaginable: Origins. The idea behind the publication is to help showcase artists from all over the world. As an artist myself, I know how difficult it is to find venues which will help promote your art and bring your amazing talents to eyes all over the globe. And that is what I want to do with Imaginable: Origins

 

The concept for each issue is very simple...

 

5 artists will be showcased each month and 5 works from each artist will fill the pages of Imaginable: Origins. Best of all, each artist will get to write a short essay about each of their 5 pieces, talking about the origins of each work: What inspired it. What finally made you start it. What it means to you. How it was created. This is your art, after all...tell the world about each piece!

 

Artists of all types are welcome: painters, sculptors, illustrators, photographers...whatever you are.

 

And if that is not enough...this is all free. I just really want to provide a venue for all types of artists to bring their works to our wonderful world.

 

The inaugural issue will be launched online in June and I am accepting submissions via the details in this call and on the Imaginable Arts website.

 

Please visit the Imaginable Arts website at www.imaginablearts.biz for more details.

PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST BLACK AND WHITE 2019 COMPETITION

PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST BLACK AND WHITE 2019 COMPETITION

 

    Submission Deadline: May 13, 2019 (12:00 Midnight EST)
    Curator Selection: on or before May 20, 2019
    Artist Notification: on or before May 20, 2019
    Grant Announcement: on or before May 20, 2019
    Exhibit Opens: May 31, 2019

 

Photo-Competition.online is hosting the photography contest “Black and White 2019”. There will be 1 grant winner and 9 honorable mentions. This competition is open to all photographers worldwide.

 

Color can powerful, but black and white images can evoke emotion more vividly than even the most colorful photograph by stripping away the distractions of color in a photo, baring only the essentials. Black and white images reveal tone and contrast, shape, shadow and highlight, texture, form, depth, and light quality. Capturing these elements in a photograph can be challenging unless you are a seasoned professional. Photographers must see in tone in order to take an exceptional black and white photograph. This contest challenges the photographer to see in black and white and tell the story seen in their mind’s eye.

 

    Ten photographers will be selected for an online group exhibit, "Black and White 2019"; the exhibit and photographers will be extensively marketed on this website and over the internet, including YouTube.  In this exhibit the selected artist's photos along with the photographers name, title, and size of the photo will be displayed.

 

    One photographer's work will be selected to receive the “Bobby Lashomb Photography Grant” of $100. This artist’s work will become the image of the exhibition and will be used on the invitation, video title screen and on all online presentations.
     
    Ten photographers will receive an photography contest certificate through the Photo-Competition.online website and will be available for life.

 

Theme and Selection:

Black and white images can add mystery to a photograph. Whether it be a landscape, portrait, architecture, still life, street, abstract, etc., a photograph represents what the photographer “sees” conveyed to the viewer using a visual depiction. The curators will be looking for pure black and white, not monochrome, photographs for this contest. Creativity, quality of execution, composition, and uniqueness of vision will be key elements of the winning photo. Present your best “black and white” photographs using tone and contrast, shape, shadow and highlight, texture, form, depth, and light quality expressed using any genre from realism to abstraction.

ART CONTEST FOR GRADUATE COLLEGE STUDENT ARTISTS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS – ABSTRACT 2019

ART CONTEST FOR GRADUATE COLLEGE STUDENT ARTISTS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS – ABSTRACT 2019

 

    Submission Deadline: May 13, 2019 (12:00 Midnight EST)
    Curator Selection: on or before May 17, 2019
    Artist Notification: on or before May 20, 2019
    Grant Announcement: on or before May 20, 2019
    Exhibit Opens: May 31, 2019

 

Art-Competition.online is proud to announce the international art call for an exhibition and Art Grant "Abstract 2019". For this student group exhibition, the curators are seeking art of any subject created as abstraction.

 

    This contest is for graduate students and above, if you are a high school student or below - OR - under graduate college student,  please see our other contests for your student level.

 

    Ten student  artists will be selected for an online group exhibit, "ABSTRACT 2019"; the exhibit and artists will be extensively marketed on this website and over the internet, including YouTube.  In this exhibit the selected artist's art along with the artists name, title of the art and size of the art will be displayed.

 

    One artist’s work will be selected to receive the “Joseph O'Rourke Art Grant” of $100. This artist’s work will become the image of the exhibition and will be used on the invitation, video title screen and on all online presentations.

 

    Ten artists will receive an art contest certificate through the Art-Competition.online website and will be available for life.

 

Theme and Selection:

The artwork must be based on abstraction where the subject or message is pushed to visual limits of abstraction so that there is little or no representation of the real world (as in nonrepresentational). The submitted artwork can be of any subject that is communicated in the power of abstraction, either slight, partial, or complete.  The composition elements of the work must rely on form, color, shapes, action, lines, marks, and texture to create a purely abstract work that engages the viewer and draws them into the intention of the artist’s work. Artwork will be evaluated based on the creativity and uniqueness of the vision conveyed, the quality of execution, the interpretation and portrayal of the theme, and how clearly the artist's individual technique/style is presented in the chosen medium.


Proceeds from this art competition support this website and the Free drawing and painting lessons at http://www.DrawingandPaintingLessons.com
