LACDA 2010 ‘Top 40’ International Juried Competition – Call for Entries

LACDA 2010 ‘Top 40’ International Juried CompetitionLACDA announces our juried competition for digital art and photography. Our competitions are very open ended in terms of concept and approach, choosing not impose limits on the artists. Rather, we encourage a broad range of technological creativity. Many top level academics, many self-taught ‘outsiders,’ some persons of great
celebrity, many entirely unknown are exhibited–we are radically inclusive and all are welcome. Our only caveat is that the work must involve digital processes of some kind (as this is our focus). That one requirement instantly narrows things down to a very identifiable realm of activity, in which we have sought expertise and for which we
are a formidable advocate. This open approach is informed by our many years of experience in that regard.Entrants submit three JPEG files of original work. All styles of artwork and photography where digital processes of any kind were integral to the creation of the images are acceptable. Open to all geographical locations.

Forty selected winners receive one print up to 24×36 on museum quality paper to be shown in an international group exhibition in our gallery from May 13-June 5, 2010. The show will be widely promoted and will include a reception for the artists.

Many artists from this exhibit continue their relationship with LACDA for exhibit in solo shows, exhibits curated outside of LACDA and exhibit in art and photo fairs where LACDA participates. All entries are given special consideration for exhibiting at LACDA and outside exhibitions where we are featured.

Artists participating in our competitions form the pool of artists from which we select the vast majority of those featured at LACDA and are often considered by our associated network of galleries, museums and curators. Proceeds from the competition support these gallery programs.
