Kristina LoganLark Jewelry & Beading are seeking good quality photographs of original, contemporary beads in all materials to publish in a new juried, international collection in their 500 Series of books: Showcase 1000 Beads. This book is scheduled to be published in January 2014. The book will be juried by Kristina Logan.

 


They welcome and encourage the submission of photographs of handmade beads in all materials (glass, metal, polymer clay, metal clay, ceramics, paper, fibre, plastic, wood, stone, etc.) and design styles. All work must be made no earlier than 2010, and the more recent the work, the better.

Lark strongly prefers images of beads that have not been published previously, and please do not submit images of pieces that have been published in any Lark book. They can accept only high-quality digital images. Artists will receive full acknowledgment within the book and a complimentary copy. Artists retain copyright of their work. There is no entry fee.

All submissions must be submitted electronically through Juried Art Services. Note that there is no fee for using Juried Art Services. The entry page can be found here.


Entries must be submitted by February 14, 2013.

All visuals submitted must represent work that is original in design. Please choose work that reflects the book’s concept. A maximum of four entries per artist is allowed, so please submit your best work. An entry may consist of no more than two visuals: an overall shot and one detail (or alternate view); the detail shots are not required. The primary images you submit should each be different designs. For example, do NOT submit four variations of very similar beads; instead, submit one bead from each of four series.

Important: Lark will only publish photos of entries containing images and text that are free of copyright or for which the artist (or approved institution) holds copyright.
