One of the first things I talk to my students about is the challenge of experiencing a scene or subject with four or five of our senses and then translating those feelings into a two-dimensional frame and image. I might be standing on a beach, watching a beautiful sunset, feeling the sand beneath my feet, listening to the waves crash and the gulls chirp and smelling the salty ocean breezes, but how do I distill all the sensory information, other than visual, into a photograph? Texture, the possibilities are endless. All capture types and photographic processes are eligible for this competition.

SPACES (Saving and Preserving Arts and Cultural Environments) is a California-based non-profit archive established in 1978 to identify, document, and advocate for the preservation of large-scale art environments, and self-taught art.
SPACES recently launched a beautiful digital archive of more than 1,400 art environments around the world, and the organization is regularly digitizing archival holdings, soliciting new documentation and writing about the sites, and sharing resources and updates on the preservation and conservation of threatened vernacular art sites, such as Rev. Howard Finster's Paradise Gardens, Leonard Knight's Salvation Mountain, or Simon Rodia's Watts Towers.
The SPACES archive is a wonderful resource for the classroom, AND a great opportunity to exhibit your own photographs of art environments and vernacular architecture from around the world via our digital Online Collection, furthering access and education surrounding the documentation of this genre of vernacular architecture + self-taught art.
Please consider submitting photographs for any site that is not already listed, or contribute images you may have already taken at art environments. Credit is always given, and any donated materials are digitized and cared for in our Aptos, CA archive for perpetuity according to best practices.

Nine Dot Arts Artist Database
Hosted by: Nine Dot Arts
Territory: Worldwide - Theme: Open
Eligibility: Everyone is welcome to apply. This is a rolling call for entry and will not have a deadline.
Entry Fee: No - FREE
Nine dot Arts’ artist database is internally used by our team of art consultants. After an extensive visual preference survey is given to our clients we refer to our database to choose the most appropriate art to present.

We present work in all styles and mediums including paintings, prints, photography, sculpture, ceramics, textiles, and other art media. We typically place larger works (i.e. 20” x 20” and larger) of art because corporate spaces have very large walls. However, smaller series of works can be used in multiples.
There are three subject matters we rarely work with. They are nudes, strong political tones, and religious iconography. If your work consists solely of any of these please reconsider applying to this call.
