Call for Mannequins!
Imagine Me Beyond What You See was designed to promote a healthy awareness and acceptance of body images. The mannequin art contest is open to everyone; however, iaedp™ is expressly asking treatment centers and private practices with art therapists to work with patients to provide entries. Mannequins may be purchased online. They can be male or female forms and are available in different body shapes and sizes. Get your mannequin from flea markets, thrift stores, garage sales or retail stores may even donate used mannequins, if asked. Mixed media may be used.
Are you working on your Mannequin submission for 2016?
Entries must include a 300 word description/inspiration of your artwork along with a 2/3 sentence biography of artist/group. Provide a list of the materials you used and submit photos of the artwork in high (300+) resolution jpeg format that shows at least 4 different angles. Entries will be accepted from October 15 through December 15 of every year and will require you signing an artist release. Email Blanche Williams: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800-800-8126 x 83.
The winner will be spotlighted at iaedp’s Annual Symposium, receive a financial award, and have their photographic artwork used in iaedp™ promotional mailings for a year.
