The TOP 100 is an open submission art exhibition inviting artists to submit 2D artworks inspired by a piece of music, lyric or a musical artist. This could be a fantasy album cover for a favourite artist or an interpretation of a song or lyric.
You may interpret in photography, painting, print, drawing, graphics, comic strip, collage or whatever medium you choose as long as it’s 12″x12″ and 2D (check the submission rules for full details).
The Exhibition: 100 works will be selected from the entries over two rounds and wall hung at 3 shows: a central London venue for 6 weeks Dec-Jan followed by a further show and a weekend event/music festival in Brighton in May 09 followed by a final show and the announcement of the selected Number 1. Two of the Venues are music-related with musicians and music industry representatives working and visiting – there is a guaranteed large audience for these venues.
The work will be judged by well-placed representatives from art galleries, music, photography and design backgrounds. The judges will select a top 20 for each round that will be given additional promotion both on our upcoming website to be launched along with the first show and at the shows themselves.
There will be private views at selected venues. The promotion of the shows will be accompanied by a free CD of unsigned bands’ music.
Visit the website for more information and be sure to read the downloadable submissions page for deadline details.
