Avant Card - Artist Project

BY Avant Card | 15-Jun-2012
Art is integral to everything we do at Avant Card, and as such we take great pleasure in providing exposure for emerging artists by producing beautiful works of art on our postcards and also distributing them to our national venue network. The punters love us for this and in turn we love giving artists a vehicle to showcase their talent. Our aim is to promote diversity – and successful images are chosen based on their ability to inspire, intrigue or inform the general public. You art must look like it belongs on a postcard, it has to be special and it has to stand out.

Artist Project Categories

  • 2D Artist
  • Short Filmakers & Animators

Submissions

Specs:

  • 2D Artist: Send 3 images (under 3MB each) of your best artworks as jpg, tif, pdf, eps or ai file formats (do not send website links).
    Note: We are in need of landscape orientation artwork, and if portrait artwork is selected, please keep in mind it may be displayed in landscape format.
  • Short Filmmakers & Animators: Send a movie file (under 3MB) or website link.

You & Your Art:

We’d love to know who you are, so be sure to include a short bio about yourself (50 words or less), your art and any strong message that you’d like to communicate to the public and this information will be considered for inclusion on the back of the card.

The Printed Card  – Your Art Realised As a National Print Campaign!

  • 2D Artist: Artwork is printed on the front of the card and artist bio is included on the back.
  • Short Filmmakers & Animators: A still hero image selected by us is printed on the front of the postcard alongside a QR Code. Artist and film information is included on the back. The QR Code links to our website (to track QR Code scans) and sends visitors to the Avant Card YouTube Channel where the film or animation must be hosted.

Please note once you have been selected we contact you and we do not print without the artist’s final approval.

Distribution
The amount of  postcards we print per artwork varies due to print parameters, the artist will be informed once we know how full the print runs are. Artists receive 500 copies for their own use.

We look forward to seeing your submission and best of luck with your artwork finding its way onto an Avant Card postcard!

Please note, the Avant Card Artist’s Project is only open to residents of Australia.
