Northern Public Radio is seeking submissions from visual artists in our listening area to be featured in the 2017 WNIJ/WNIU wall calendar. Regional visual artists working in any medium are invited to enter one original work for consideration.
This is the second year for the calendar, which presents a different artist each month. WNIJ/WNIU developed the calendar contest to introduce and engage the listening audience and supporters with outstanding work by artists across the region.
This year, the station invited Rockford Art Museum Curator Carrie Johnson to help select the featured artwork.
“It is a privilege to work with the museum because we share their passion for communicating the pleasure and appreciation of the visual arts in our region,” says General Manager Staci Hoste. “We are grateful for their professional contribution to this project, and we hope it serves the artists well.”
The deadline for entries is 5 p.m. Friday, June 17.
Artists must comply with all contest rules and are limited to one entry. Each entry must include a completed registration form and a digital image of the artwork, which must meet specifications outlined in the rules. Contest rules, including image specifications, and the registration form are available online.
Entries that are incomplete or do not comply with contest rules will not be considered.
There is no cost to enter. There is no financial compensation. Contest winners will be notified in advance of the printing of the publication.
