DEADLINE EXTENDED! We will keep tagging open until the second week of October. Get your images tagged today!

(Monday 26 August 2013 :: ATLANTA) Remember all those snazzy Instagram photos you took this year and thought, “Wow, that turned out nice.” Well, it’s time to put them to good use!

ARTvision and
Positive Impact are proud to announce “ARTvision Squared” — a photo competition that allows everyone, including and especially those who’ve not shown work before, to submit their photographs from Instagram and Hipstamatic. Those images will be judged by our 2013 ARTvision-8 jury and, if selected, could earn money for our beneficiary, Positive Impact.

Each image should reflect this year’s theme: “The Promise of Peace: Art Innovating Life,” and should be
your original image and not shown or offered anywhere else. When our jury convenes, we’ll select 10 of the top images for framing and display, and choose three for the top prize.

Think of it as a competition within our annual event: your great photo is elevated, and we’re able to make some much-needed money for Positive Impact in the process.

Here’s how ARTvision Squared will work: If you have an existing photo you’d like to submit, go in and add
#AVSquared as a hashtag (here’s a help page on how to add hashtags to existing pictures). Any photos you’d like to nominate, new or existing, must contain that hashtag. Check out our entries thus far:

Once you have #AVSquared included in your photo, e-mail the image to artvisiondirector [at] stonefour [dot] com with “AVSquared 2013” as your subject, and in the e-mail body, include all pertinent information:

  • Your name
  • Title of the photo (required)
  • Location
  • A description of the image, including which app you used
  • How does this image reflect a peaceful world? (be as lengthy as you want)

When the jury convenes in October, we’ll bring up the images and judge them. “ARTvision Squared” also will follow ARTvision-8’s calendar, which is:

• Deadline for submissions: Tuesday 17 Sept. 2013 (the AV jury will convene in early October)

DEADLINE EXTENDED! You now have an extra week to tag photos. Please have your images tagged & titled by Wednesday 25 Sept. 2013.

• Notification e-mails sent: Monday 21 Oct. 2013*
• Deadline for physical pieces to Atlanta: Tuesday 12 Nov. 2013 (preferably earlier)

The same
rules and guidelines apply to ARTvision Squared that do for the general show, too. (learn more about how ARTvision works) Our Top 10 #AVSquared images will be framed identically and displayed on a wall during ARTvision-8’s main event at Stone Four Studios in December. Artists who display in our main show are eligible to participate in ARTvision Squared, too.
