Competitions INDA 14: International Drawing Annual
International Deadline: December 31, 2018 – Manifest Creative Research Gallery’s 14th International Drawing Annual’ invites artists to submit original works of art or design created within the past three years. Artists, designers, illustrators, professionals, and students in ALL disciplines are encouraged to submit.
Manifest is eager to receive works of drawing in a wide range of applications (technical, graphic, fine art, design, sketching, architectural, digital, illustration, etc.) with the qualification being that artwork submitted is representative of “drawing.” Works that push the boundaries of what constitutes drawing are also encouraged and welcome.
Open to any media applicable to the practice of drawing including but by no means limited to traditional drawing media. Printmaking, digital/new media, photography, sculpture, painting, installation, etc., are all possibly valid.
Essays, poetry, and other drawing-related writings (Optional separate call for submissions). Manifest calls for scholarly, critical, and creative writing for publishing it each of its three publication projects. Information about this, and a separate entry process, can be found here.
First, Second, and Third Place awards for works of drawing will be decided by the jury committee. Each award winner will have a brief artist’s statement included in the publication. There will be three cash prizes of $1200, $500, and $300 for first, second, and third place winners.
JURY & CURATOR
Manifest’s selection process involves a complex two-part system. This project will be juried by a 9-12 member panel of professional and academic volunteer advisors with a broad range of expertise. The jury will then pass along their scores to the project curator/editor who will assemble the final selections from the jury-approved pool.
Each artist/author selected for inclusion in the INDA will receive one complimentary copy of the publication.
The INDA 5 was awarded a national silver medal award from the Independent Publishers Association in their New York City ceremony, in which other major arts institutions such as the Whitney Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art have competed. The INDA 8 was awarded a bronze medal award in the same competition. Manifest’s books are distributed to bookstores across the country, including museum bookstores, and are available through Amazon.com as well as at Manifest Gallery and on the Manifest website.
