Showcase 500 Necklaces
Inscrições até 01 Ago 2012
I'm pleased to announce a two-month call for entries for a new 500 Series
gallery book of handmade contemporary jewelry from Lark Books: Showcase 500
Necklaces. The opportunity closes on August 1, 2012. That is a short window
of time, so I ask you please to share the call for entries promptly with
your entire jewelry-making community, including peers, associations,
schools, students, and all online forums as well as social media like
Twitter and Facebook, and to respond to it yourself in a timely way. As
always, we hope to receive a wide array of entries from around the world.
I'm also pleased to report Lark has converted to using an online entry
system; entries are now online only, through a portal provided by Juried Art
Services. Here is the link for the informational prospectus and to enter:
You'll find all the information you need at that link, so please follow the
instructions carefully, but here are some key points:
We'll accept jewelry in all materials with all techniques and design styles,
including both wearable and conceptual but biasing toward the wearable,
simply because most readers prefer seeing wearable jewelry in these books.
Jurying will favor more recent work, and so we ask you to submit very recent
or current work from no earlier than 2010. The submission limit is two
pieces (one photo of each, with an option of one or two alternate or detail
photos per piece). 'Necklaces' can include neckpieces, chokers, torques,
collars, operas, ropes, chains, bibs, etc. There is no charge for entry for
this book; Lark is covering the Juried Art Services cost. We strongly prefer
work that has not been previously published in book form.
The JAS form will walk you through the process, but a few notes:
1. No need to complete the Artist Statement section.
2. Please read and follow Lark's Digital Image Submission Guidelines.
3. We encourage early entries, especially to avoid having any last-minute
difficulties with the new entry process: Complete the process ahead of the
deadline so you're assured of having time to resolve any technical issues
you might encounter.

Necklaces will be a book devoted to work of creative excellence and
innovation, and we invite and welcome your contribution to the book.
