Calling All Artists | PTWC 19


 
The 2019 Philadelphia Trans Wellness Conference (PTWC) is seeking artists/photographers for its annual cover art competition. 
 
Theme
We are looking for a visual narrative that moves the viewer to experience the beauty or uniqueness of any aspect of the trans experience. 
 
Guidelines
Submissions for consideration can be in any still medium— painting, photography, sculpture, collage, drawing, assemblage, Installation, fiber art, or digital art—and should be expressive of the artist’s emotions, whether it is bold energy, subtle expression, inner beauty, or a unique vision. All art submitted should be family-friendly.
 
Eligibility
The competition is open to all artists who identify as transgender, non-binary, or gender non-conforming expressing themselves in any still medium.
 
Selection
Two winners will be selected by the judging committee. Submissions will be judged on artistic merit and the effectiveness with which the artist reflects the theme. The winning artists’ artwork will be featured on the PTWC website, conference program book covers, and other print and online materials.
 
The cover art winners will receive a cash prize and a vending table for all three days of the conference (July 25-27, 2019).
