Entry is open to all textile artists. International entries are welcome. Non-Australian artists must provide completed paperwork and payment (if any) to satisfy customs requirements.
Entries may be any kind of fibre art but each work must be sturdy enough to travel without special requirements. Works that have significant 3 dimensional features, require special hanging apparatus, or are delicate or require special handling will not be selected.
Entries must measure 100x40cm finished (LxW, vertical banner format). A 1cm variation in any direction is permitted.
Entries must include both a hanging sleeve and velcro strips in accordance with the curator’s directions.
Entries must be submitted via the Living Colour! Online Entry Form by no later than 31 January 2014 (NSW, Australia time). No paper entries or disks will be accepted. (See Image Specifications below.)
Selected works must be delivered by 28 February 2014 and available to tour for up to 18 months. The curator is not obliged to release or return any work before 1 October 2015.
Only one textile work will be selected per entrant, although artists may enter more than one work.
The work must be an original design, not a copy of a traditional design or a variation of the work of another artist. All work must be the result of independent effort and must not be the product of an instructional setting in which another artist has provided guidance or assistance.
Artwork that differs from the submitted images will not be accepted.
Works must not have been previously exhibited. Entrants may share glimpses of the work online but must not publish an image of the entire work until the premier exhibition (currently set for the Australasian Quilt Convention in April 2014).
The entrant gives permission for photos of any selected work to be published on the Living Colour! website and used in publicity, reviews or articles.
