Artists from 12 Southeastern states (Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia) are once again invited to compete for $100,000 in total cash prizes. The prizes will be distributed as a Top Prize of $50,000, a Juried Panel prize of $25,000, a People’s Choice two-dimensional prize of $12,500, and a People’s Choice three-dimensional prize of $12,500.
“This is an especially busy season, so we wanted artists to have a bit of extra time to ensure submissions reach their full potential,” said Arts & Cultural Relations Director Erin Glaze Nathanson.
The Call for Submissions is open online at http://www.artfieldssc.org/artists/how-it-works/ until December 15, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Established and emerging artists may submit 2-D or 3-D pieces including but not limited to painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, digital media and installation art.
Submissions will be accepted online and then reviewed by a jury of visual art professionals who will ultimately select hundreds of pieces to compete for the prize money. Accepted artists will be notified no later than January 15, 2014.
Applicants must be 18 or over by December 15, 2013 and reside in one of the selected states. Only original artwork is eligible for submission and must have been completed within two years of the registration deadline.
