CALL to ARTISTS: Art Kudos
Today, I am going to give you a time-tested Southern recipe for success. Use sugar, not vinegar. It worked for Mary Poppins; it will work for you. When sending in your Calls for Entries, your submissions for the $2 Art Contest or submissions for ANY show. Be professional, but above all else… be nice. I am going to have to quit saying that I do not usually recommend online exhibits because here is another one. It is a great exhibit sponsored by a great site (albeit a competitor, of sorts). Consider the benefits.
Check out this Call to Artists for Art Kudos, and international juried competition sponsored by ArtShow.com, my personal favorite of the mass-listing art deadline sites. And there is NO COMMISSION. Take a look…
CALL to ARTISTS: Art Kudos
Art Kudos is an annual international juried competition that serves to recognize and honor excellence in the visual arts. Artists who are selected as finalists benefit from world-wide exposure in a year-long online exhibition and have the opportunity to win cash awards for their exemplary work.
ELIGIBILITY: The competition is open to artists anywhere in the world, 18 years of age or older. Publishers, galleries, agents, and collectors may not submit artwork on behalf of artists.
MEDIA: Drawings, paintings, printmaking, photography, digital art, sculpture, installations, wood, glass, ceramics, fiber art and mixed media are eligible. Media not accepted: video/film, wearable art (clothing or jewelry). All works submitted must be original in design and concept. Artwork must not be copied, in part or wholly, from any published or copyrighted work. Work previously shown in an Art Kudos exhibition is ineligible. Please do not submit images which would be inappropriate for general audiences.

ENTRY FEE: Artists must submit a completed entry form and pay a non-refundable entry fee of $30 US dollars (check, money order, or PayPal) to submit 3 images. For sculptural or three-dimensional pieces, artists may submit 2 views of each work (for a total of 6 images).
JUROR: Holly Koons McCullough is the Director of Collections and Exhibitions at the Telfair Museum of Art in Savannah, Georgia. She began her career at the Telfair in 1996, serving as the museum’s Curator of Education before assuming leadership of the curatorial department.

She holds a B. A. in English and art history from the University of Georgia and a M.A. in art history from the University of Notre Dame.
AWARDS: Exemplary works will be displayed in a year-long online exhibition at www.artkudos.com beginning August 15th, 2011.
