Call For Submissions:
Showcase 1000 Beads
Lark Jewelry & Beading (http://www.facebook.com/LarkJewelryBeading) seeks excellent photographs of original, contemporary beads in all materials to publish in a new juried, international collection in our 500 Series of books: Showcase 1000 Beads. This book is scheduled to be published in January 2014. The book will be juried by glass beadmaker Kristina Logan. We welcome and encourage submission of photographs of your handmade beads in all materials, including glass, metal, polymer clay, metal clay, ceramics, paper, fiber, plastic, wood, stone, etc., and in all design styles. All work must be made no earlier than 2010, and the more recent the work the better; we would prefer to see your 2012 work over your 2011 work, and your 2011 work over your 2010 work. We strongly prefer images of beads that have not been published previously, and please do NOT submit images of pieces that have been published in any Lark book. We can accept only high-quality digital images. Artists will receive full acknowledgment within the book and a complimentary copy. Artists retain copyright of their work. There is no entry fee. All submissions must be submitted electronically through Juried Art Services. Note that there is no fee for using Juried Art Services. The entry page can be found at the following link: http://bit.ly/VTfT6E or, the full URL: http://www.juriedartservices.com/index.php?content=event_info&event_id=614. Entries must be submitted by February 14, 2013. All visuals submitted must represent work that is original in design. A maximum of four entries per artist is allowed, so please submit your best work. An entry may consist of no more than two visuals: an overall shot and one detail (or alternate view); the detail shots are not required. The primary images you submit should each be different designs. For example, please do not submit four variations of very similar beads; instead, submit one bead from each of four series. Important: Lark will only publish photos of entries containing images and text that are free of copyright or for which the artist (or approved institution) holds copyright. I've already received two questions repeatedly about this call for entries, so I'll answer them here: My model for the work in the book is Showcase 1000 Glass Beads. That means most of the photos are of a bead or beads, but some photographs of beads incorporated in jewelry or other artwork, in which the beads are highlighted, will be considered. Ultimately those choices will rest in the juror's final decision-making. Also, beaded beads are acceptable as submissions. Thank you for your participation, either in submitting entries yourself or sharing the call for entries with your craft community.
