In conjunction with BrownTrout Publishers Australia, Elastic Design are once again producing a bunch of New Zealand art calendars for 2020.
We’re currently looking for artists for the Artists’ Impressions of New Zealand and the Contemporary New Zealand Art calendars.
All successful artists will be paid NZ$120 per internal image, plus an extra NZ$150 if the artwork is selected for the cover. You will also be supplied a couple of samples of the printed calendar, and have access to the Publishers wholesale prices to buy bulk calendars (if you wish to sell/gift to family and friends).
Calendars will be sold online and throughout New Zealand at all the usual stationery outlets (Whitcoulls, Warehouse Stationery and Paper Plus, etc). For a full list of NZ stockists, please refer here.
For these art calendars we’re only accepting paintings. If you are interested in supplying BrownTrout Publishers with your photography (or other craft), it’s best to contact them directly. Be sure to check out their submission guidelines here for more information.
Your art is high quality, so photographs of them should be too. If the photo is too small or out of focus, or if there are issues with colour, lighting or shadows – then you’re not showing a true representation of your work.
We think the best approach is simply to hire a professional photographer. Obviously, not everyone has the budget or resources to hire a pro, so if you plan to take the photos yourself, be sure to review the following tips before filling out the form.
APPLICATIONS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED.
We’ll be in touch with all the artists once the final selections have been made.
