Manifest Gallery Seeks Drawing Works for Published Annual


The 12th International Drawing Annual
A Juried Annual Publication of Works of Recent Contemporary Drawing

Entry Deadline: December 31, 2016

$2000 in CASH AWARDS NOW INCLUDE A $1200 First Prize

NOTE: As this is a BOOK project, works that are not otherwise available (i.e. physically) may still be submitted for consideration. All that is required of accepted artists is a print-quality hi-res digital image of accepted works. All included artists receive a complimentary copy of the finished book.

ALSO NOTE: One can view the Online Resources for the past INDA projects and get an overview of the works included previously. But one should not assume these represent a goal or ideal for the type or style of work this project will accept. Manifest is very eager to see diverse submissions come in and even challenge any perceived patterns represented by previous volumes. The INDA is intended to be a living sampling of excellent drawing being made today.

This project is paralleled by a separate new annual gallery exhibit at Manifest entitled DRAWN. Info for this will be posted here when available.

The award-winning International Drawing Annual is an extension and merging of Manifest’s Drawing Center, Press, and Gallery programs. Its goal is to support the recognition, documentation, and publication of excellent, current, and relevant works of drawing of all kinds from around the world.

A natural question will be “what is drawing?” and that is exactly one question the Annual is meant to investigate from year to year. Furthermore the goal is to ask “what is exceptional drawing?” Therefore submissions are expected to vary, including a range of drawing types, from the most academic to the most experimental, but all with some relevance to the artists’ honest understanding of the practice of “drawing.”
