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.
Each year, the Book of Business features 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 are invited to display up to five pieces of their work at the Book on Business launch party, planned for late January and attended by hundreds of people from the local business community. And each artist’s headshot, short bio and contact information will be included in the 2020 Book of Business.
Artists can submit up to three entries. Photography is not accepted, but photo illustration and collage will be considered. The publication is tabloid format, so vertical art is preferred. One piece will be used on the cover, all other selections will appear as full-page section intros throughout the publication. The artist whose piece is chosen for the cover will also receive $250 and a 1/2 page ad credit.
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. 13.
Editor's note: For businesses that have questions about being included on industry lists in the Book on Business, contact [email protected].
