Call for Art – Catalog Cover Competition

Application Submission Dates: June 14 – July 31, 2019
No Fee – See eligibility below

The Saint Paul Art Crawl invites artists to submit artwork to our juried call for art. The winning art will grace the cover of the Art Crawl catalog. Any type of art will be considered. Any form (circle, rectangle, square) will be considered. If it is not a square, the artist will work with the catalog designer to crop it intentionally to fit the full dimensions of the cover. The full image as provided will be represented with artist’s statement in the catalog. St. Paul Art Collective | Art Crawl logo will need to be placed within the image, again the artist will work with the catalog designer for placement.

Awards – $500 for winning image, $100 for each of two runner ups

Jury Criteria

The Jury will consist of 3 Community Members.

  • We are looking for images that create a strong emotional/aesthetic reaction in the viewer.
  • The image should have strong artistic merit and also work to represent the Art Crawl through its marketing campaign.
  • The image should appeal to a broad audience.
  • The image should be appropriate for a general audience. The post office can choose not to send mail containing nudity or what they deem to be offensive, and businesses may choose not to display catalogs with images they find distasteful.
