Calling All Local Artists!
The Greater Wilmington Business Journal's Book of Business is an annual publication showcasing the Wilmington region as a center of business.
This year, the Book of Business will feature original paintings and drawings created by local artists that reflect area landmarks, events, communities, native wildlife or landscapes.
Artists whose work is selected to appear in the publication will be invited to display up to five pieces of their work at the Book on Business Launch Party, which is planned for Jan. 24 and includes hundreds of people from the local business community. Each artist’s headshot and contact information will be included in the publication, and they will also receive a complimentary copy of the 2018 Book of Business.
Artists can submit up to three entries. Photography will not be accepted, but photo illustration or collage will be considered. The Book is tabloid format, so vertical art is preferred. One piece will be used on the cover, all other selections will appear throughout the publication. The artist whose piece is chosen for the cover will also receive $250 and a 1/2 page ad in the Book.
Please send an electronic copy of the original art in JPEG, TIFF or PDF format. Files should be less that 9MB. If your artwork is selected, we will ask for a larger, high-resolution version.
Email submissions or artist recommendations to [email protected].
Submission deadline is Dec. 11.
Editor's note: For businesses that have questions about being included on industry lists in the Book on Business, contact [email protected].
