Call for Entries: LACDA 2008 Juried Competition

Call for Entries: LACDA 2008 Juried CompetitionLos Angeles, California, USAJanuary 8-31, 2009Deadline: December 15, 2008

LACDA announces their juried competition for digital art and photography. The center's competitions are very open ended in terms of concept and approach, choosing not impose limits on the artists. Rather, they encourage a broad range of technological creativity. Many top level academics, many self-taught outsiders, some persons of great celebrity, many entirely unknown are exhibited.

The only caveat is that the work must involve digital processes of some kind (as this is the focus). That one requirement instantly narrows things down to a very identifiable realm of activity.

Entrants submit three JPEG files of original work. All styles of artwork and photography where digital processes of any kind were integral to the creation of the images are acceptable. The competition is international, open to all geographic locations. The selected winner receives 10 prints up to 44x60 inches on canvas or museum quality paper (approximately a $1,500-$2,000 value) to be shown in a solo exhibition in our main gallery from January 8-31, 2009. The show will be widely promoted and will include a reception for the artist.

Second place prizes: Five second place winners will receive one print of their work up to 24x36 inches ($150-$200 in value) to be included in upcoming group shows. Second place winners will be scheduled into group shows within twelve months of announcement of winners. Consideration is given to placing these works in shows appropriate to their style, genre and/or content. These shows will be widely promoted and will include a reception for the artists. Special consideration will be given to all entrants for inclusion in future shows at LACDA. Many entrants from past competitions have already been included in our exhibits.
