Opportunity Description

U.S. National Deadline: May 17, 2019 – The FSU Museum of Fine Arts announces an worldwide call for entries for its ‘Combined Talents‘ 2019 Annual Juried Competition.

Combined Talents is an annual juried competition sponsored by the Florida State University Museum of Fine Arts (MoFA). The competition is open to artists within the United States, eighteen years of age or older. All subject matter and media are eligible for consideration.

Work must be original and prepared for exhibition (i.e. ready for hanging or other appropriate installation) and be reasonably adaptable to gallery installation. All accepted two-dimensional work that requires glazing must be submitted framed with Plexi-glass, not glass. This does not exclude glasswork artists, and only applies to framed works requiring glazing.

The juror for Combined Talents 2019 is Hallie Ringle, the Hugh Kaul Curator of Contemporary Art at the Birmingham Museum of Art (BMA). Prior to her arrival at the BMA in 2018, Hallie Ringle was Assistant Curator at the Studio Museum in Harlem, where she directed the museum’s artist-in-residence program and led several curatorial projects, including the final installment of the “F-Shows” and the 2017 exhibition “Fictions”. Hallie Ringle currently oversees the BMA’s significant collection of work made after 1970, leads the Collector’s Circle, and guides the contemporary acquisitions process.

Award winners will be selected 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 juror’s discretion, however there is no monetary award.

There is a non-refundable $20.00 entry fee. A maximum of two (2) works per person may be submitted.


MoFA DOES NOT take a commission on works sold as a result of the exhibition. Interested buyers will be referred directly to the artist.
