"Call for Artists: The Picture Works"
2007-07-26 until 2007-08-07
Win-win opportunity for an artist in conjunction with Circa. Here's a chance to get an image of yours onto 30,000 postcards, and be paid 150 euro for your efforts. The postcards will be distributed through an extensive network in Dublin, Ireland, called The Picture Works - that's at 195 venues throughout Dublin city and county. What do we want? An image that will make people pick up the postcard. The image doesn't have to be new; it just has to be yours and it has to work.
We will take care of the back of the postcard, which will consist of information about Circa. The back will also carry your name, title of the work, and contact information if desired.
And even if you don't win, you don't lose: we will post all entries received (max three entries per artist) onto our website - if you'd like us to.
The technical stuff:
- Deadline for submissions: 7 August, 5pm; submissions by e-mail only to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Winner announced: 17 August
- Dimensions of the postcard: 148.5 mm x 105mm (portrait or landscape)
- Print bleed: add 3mm (that is [a] if your image is to go right to the edge of the postcard, it should "bleed" over it by 3mm, to allow for imprecision in the chopping of the cards; [b] if your image is not to bleed, it should stay at least 3mm from the edge of the postcard; [c] you should avoid having a border around your image, as the chopping of the card may make it unbalanced).
- Paper: 300 gsm one-sided artboard
- Finish: UV Gloss varnish
- File formats: high-res jpeg or tiff only
- Website: unless you indicate otherwise, we will post your entry / entries onto our website, win or not
