For consideration, artists should send a picture of their work to mboynton@niu.edu or mail them to the attention of Maria Boynton, Northern Public Radio, 801 N. First St., DeKalb, IL 60115.

Northern Public Radio will arrange for high-resolution photographs of the artwork, as needed, after the selections have been made. The artist’s name will appear alongside the artwork in the final calendar design. He or she can choose whether to include contact information as well.
