AAAA-International Juried Art Competition

The YOU-TUBE-IT art competition is designed to attract work which confronts global pressures of social, personal, and commercial conformity. For this reason, submissions are not bound to any underlying or overarching theme. Physical restrictions of the tube offer an opportunity for international artists to produce meaningful, original and thought provoking work within the confines of a standard shape. Artists are urged to test the outer limits of their imaginations, while searching for solutions and inspiration in the FedEx Tube’s physical boundaries. Original and unconventional approaches are encouraged, and the constraints of standard packaging are meant to draw out the creative spirit, in hopes of indicating something larger about today’s world. * International Juried Art Competition YOU-TUBE-IT is not affiliated with or sponsored by Federal Express Corporation. JURORS Mr. David Liss – Artistic Director and Curator - Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA Mr. Christof Migone – Director and Curator - Blackwood Gallery, University of Toronto, Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA Ms. Rhiannon Vogl – Curatorial Assistant, Contemporary Art - National Gallery of Canada | Musée des beaux-arts du Canada, Ottawa, Ontario CANADA deadline November 29, 2009


This really is a bad listing isn't it! Just another example of how artists are taken for a ride

Education grants are limited generally to institutions of higher education, including religious institutions (Baptist, Christian, Lutheran, Methodist, and Presbyterian).

The trustees prefer to consider only one request per applicant each fiscal year. Unsuccessful proposals may not be resubmitted for at least 12 months. Applicant organizations that have never received funding from the foundation should request a preproposal questionnaire; the trustees will review the request to determine whether it warrants a complete proposal.

Details and images were displayed on the artinliverpool.com website for the public and fellow artists to view, comment upon and give ratings. A panel of judges then selected a short-list of 6.
