CALL FOR ENTRIES: 32nd Annual Tallahassee International 2017 Juried Competition

Rules of Entry
The POSTMARK DEADLINE for entries and payment is Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2017.

Artists are eligible to submit works without regard to sex, race, creed or national origin. Artists must be 18 years of age or older (current FSU College of Fine Arts faculty or students may NOT enter). All media is eligible for consideration. There is a nonrefundable $20.00 entry fee. A maximum of two (2) works per person may be submitted. Digital images must be in jpeg format. Maximum image file size is 8MB. Slides WILL NOT be accepted. The FSU Museum can accept cash, checks, traveler cheques or money orders. Foreign checks, currencies and money wires cannot be accepted. Credit cards can be processed but by request only, and will require a separate form to be filled out and mailed or faxed in.

For two-dimensional pieces provide one (1) image per work. For three-dimensional and installation pieces artists may provide two (2) images per work—a front and rear view or an overall view and a detail. Whether submitting images by email, online entry form, dropbox or CD, name each image file with the initial of your first name followed by an underscore, your last name and a number for the file. For example, if your name is Jane Doe, the image file names would be: J_Doe1 and the second, J_Doe2 (if you have a detail view simply put detail after the number: J_Doe1detail). Video based media submissions are eligible for consideration but must be in Quicktime or Windows Media Player format, and should be no longer than a two-minute trailer. No SASE is necessary-CD’s will not be returned.

Although the Museum does not impose size restraints, artists who reside outside the United States as well as artists whose work weighs more that 150 pounds crated and/or exceeds standard Fed Ex and UPS length and girth measurements, requiring the use of freight shipping, will be responsible for BOTH incoming AND return shipping (see Shipping of Accepted Entries for further details).* Work must be original and prepared for exhibition (i.e. ready for hanging or other appropriate installation), and must be reasonably adaptable to gallery installation. No framed work, other than handdelivered, may be shipped with glass; artists must use Plexiglas in framing.

Method of Selection
The competition is blind juried by faculty members from the Florida State University College of Fine Arts. Jurors select works based on their own merit and must agree the artist demonstrates skill within the chosen medium. Selections are made from the digital images submitted, so it is imperative that quality images be provided to insure fair judging. The jury will meet during the Spring to make selections and artists will be notified of acceptance or non-acceptance no later than April 21, 2017. The exhibition is currently scheduled for August 28 to October 1, 2017. Accepted works must be in the Museum by August 18, 2017 unless other arrangements have been made. All dates are subject to slight changes. Jurors and the FSU Museum reserve the right to reject, upon arrival, any work of unacceptable craftsmanship and quality not discernible in the image.

Insurance and Limitations
All work will be insured from the point of arrival through the duration of the exhibition and in most cases will be also be insured through return transit (see Shipping of Accepted Entries for exceptions). Claims for full loss must be justified by prior sales amounts equivalent to the value of the claim.

The jurors select the award winners after the exhibition has been installed. The First Place winner will receive $1,000.00 and the Second Place winner will receive $500.00. Honorable Mentions are selected at the jurors’ discretion, however there is no monetary award. A color catalog is produced, and all artists who enter will receive a copy. Accepted artists will each receive a set of at least 10 complimentary catalogs. The Museum DOES NOT take a commission on works sold as a result of the exhibition. Interested buyers will be referred directly to the artist.
