Splash 11 New Directions

Call for Entries for Splash 11: New Directions - North Light Books’ hardbound showcase of the best in contemporary watercolors

Description from their entry form: As Splash continues to celebrate excellence in watercolor painting, we look to discover “new directions.” If your artwork is selected, you will be asked to explain in writing how your painting represents some sort of new direction. This may refer to changing your whole style of painting, going outside to paint for the first time, attempting to do large studio paintings after years of working small, changing subject matter, changing your life situation, trying out a new color palette, experimenting with a new surface, using different brushes, applying paint in a new way—whatever “new directions” means to you. Have you had a personal breakthrough? Maybe you initiated this new direction or learned from another painter. Perhaps you feel the painting itself was directing you in a certain way. “New Directions” can be interpreted in many ways. We are still looking for excellence in a variety of styles, and the dominant medium must be transparent watercolor, though minor uses of other media are acceptable

Deadline for submissions is January 16, 2009

Visit the Splash11 website for the entry form and details.
Please note that there is a $20 entry fee for each painting you submit. What I don't know is if there is an additional fee should your work be awarded publication. (They don't mention it on their site or have any contact info listed on their site....as a result of a little sleuthing, I think this is their phone number though if you'd like to call: 715-445-2214).
