See Below for our CALL FOR ENTRIES for the 2021 wall. Deadline March 15, 2021

2021 Theme:  “SATURATED(as in color)”

There are many definitions of saturated.  We are interested in the one that refers to “chromatic purity”.  Our aim in 2021 is to create the brightest, most colorful Wall to date.  All techniques, all subject matter, and all interpretations of this theme are acceptable.  Selections will be made based on artistic merit, diversity, graphic strength, interpretation of the theme, and how all the images work together as a group.  The Wall is most often viewed from a distance, so strong graphic qualities work best.

Elegibility: If your work was featured on the Wall in 2018, ’19 or ’20, you are not eligible for 2021.  If you appeared in the years ’16 or ’17, you may submit work again.  Though preferable, you do not have to be a WCAA member.

  1. Submit no more than THREE low resolution images: 72 dpi and 650 pixels on longest side (or therabouts). All images should be horizontal and able to accommadate some cropping.  The 12 panels vary in size but are approximately 11’x17′.  Winning artists will be required to submit a high resolution file for the printing of their panel (300dpi and at least 5000 pixels on longest side). If you are unable to provide such an image, please do not enter.
  2. Title each image with a number and your last name and provide the following text in the body of your email: Number, Title, Your Name, Medium, Size.  Provide the addresses of any websites or social media accounts where more of your work can be seen.  Include your mailing address and best phone number.  You may add any additional info you feel is pertinent
  3. Submit by EMAIL ONLY to greatwallentry@gmail.com
  4. Deviations from these rules may cause your entry to be disqualified.

DEADLINE: Midnight, March 15, 2021
