Multifaith Action Society: Call for Submissions - Visual Artists, Submission Deadline January 31

Opportunity for Visual Artists...

Each year, the Multifaith Action Society invites artists to submit works of art for publication in our upcoming Multifaith Calendar.

The theme for our upcoming 2023 edition is: Building Our Future Together

Deadline for submissions: 31 January 2022

We believe this theme is open to a wide variety of interpretations and leaves open the possibility for a rich array of artistic submissions.

While the last few years have been challenging on many fronts, we have persevered. We have pulled back and conserved our energies, as needed, and have tapped into more inner strength than likely any of us knew we had. Our struggles have not been easy, but we have deepened our resolve and grown immeasurably in spite of – indeed, because of – them.

Yet now it is time for us to regroup and work towards building our future together. To meet the neighbours we have never visited before and to join forces with friends, newcomers, and former enemies. Our collective needs are vast, but working in concert, we can surely meet them. We can rebuild the cities and towns that have been devastated by climate disaster. We can support workers and small businesses that have languished during the pandemic. We can plant trees and revitalize salmon populations. We can nurture gardens and care for even the smallest of God's creatures. We can heal our social and political divides. We can make amends for our nation's past abuses and reconcile fully with our Indigenous sisters and brothers. We can teach our children to love themselves and one another. And when trouble arises and we begin to lose hope, we can take a step back and trust that others will soon pick up the slack. For there is no need for fear or overwhelm when you know you are just one part of a cohesive, loving community.

Submission Guidelines..... Artists can submit up to 5 works for consideration and artwork on this theme can be submitted in any medium. All artists are invited to submit including those who have never been featured in the Calendar and those who have been featured in past editions. Ultimately, the interpretation of the theme will be determined by the overall collection of images received.

How We Pay Artists..... Selected artists will be offered an honorarium of $250 per monthly calendar image, $500 for the cover image, and $100 for smaller inset images placed throughout the Calendar. In addition, featured artists will receive a set of complimentary Calendars once published.

How to Submit Entries..... Submit digital images (up to 5) in low resolution (jpg/72dpi) to: artsubmissions@multifaithaction.org

Should your piece be chosen, we will contact the artist and request a high resolution version of the image (min 400 dpi).

Additional information can also be found on our Multifaith Calendar web site.

Address any questions to: artsubmissions@multifaithaction.org

Best of luck and we look forward to your submissions!
