Call for Submissions: Enjoy Mill Valley Guide Cover Contest
Artists and Friends of Artists,
You're invited to submit artwork to be considered for the cover of our annual Enjoy Mill Valley (EMV) Guide. In addition to the cover art, the winning artist will receive a feature story 46,000 copies to be distributed in Marin.
Entry Dates (online only): January 28- March 7, 2020. No entry fees.
Size: The Guide is 10" high x 7" wide. Keep these dimensions and this orientation in mind when submitting art. Look at the 2019 cover at left and factor in the text that will need to be included or include in your submissions.
Submission Limit: 3 works per artist.
Theme: This year's theme is "Joy." Mill Valley is full of innovative, inspiring people, places, products and services that bring joy to our community, and we're going to celebrate as many of them as we can in this Guide. The joy is in simply being here in Mill Valley, a community that is like no other, and the 2020 Enjoy Mill Valley Guide will revel in that joy.
Description of Art: Please submit a painting or photograph that represents Mill Valley in a joyful way. It can be literal or symbolic. Since this is an annual Guide, the work should look fantastic on a coffee table and be relevant for all four seasons of the year. We are looking for a cover that pops and draws attention.
CLICK HERE for Contest Rules with details on how to enter. This is a juried contest. Only one piece will be selected for the cover.
More on the Enjoy Mill Valley Guide: The Guide is a vital, engaging booklet of feature stories and info and will be inserted into the June issue of Marin Magazine. It will be delivered to 38,000 households and reach 208,000 readers. Another 8,000 will be distributed to businesses and organizations locally.
