The 2022 SAA Calendar Contest and Online Submission Form
Due to the ongoing Covid crisis, this year’s Calendar Contest will be virtual once again since the Cumming Arts Center has not yet re-opened on a weekly basis. Please note that the contest is only open to members of the Sawnee Association of the Arts. Members may submit one high quality photo of their favorite piece of art that will be displayed on the 2022 Calendar Contest page on the SAA website. Members of the public, as well as SAA members, will be allowed to vote for their three favorite pieces of art. There is no entry fee for this show.
Each member may submit only one entry. This can be any type of artwork that the member creates, including jewelry, woodworking, pottery, painting, drawing, photography, egg art, crochet, fabric art, soaps, candles, etc., in other words, all types of 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional art. You do not need to be a current exhibitor at the Cumming Arts Center to submit your artwork, but you must be an SAA member. If you are not currently a member, you may join or renew by going to the sawneeart.org website to complete the membership form and pay your annual dues.
Photo submissions will be accepted on the SAA/Cumming Arts Center website (sawneeart.org) starting February 28th through March 14th, 2021. You must include the following information with your artwork photo: Name of artist, Title or description of art piece, and Medium. If your work is framed, please do not include the frame in your photograph. Note: Be sure your photo is centered, focused and of good resolution. There should be little or no background visible around your artwork. Be careful not to get reflections or glare on your subject. 3D artists: please limit the subject of your photo to no more than three examples of your artwork so that the detail and quality of your pieces can be best appreciated. This photo will be the only way the quality of your work can be appreciated and judged.
The artworks will be available for voting by the public on the Sawnee Arts website beginning March 29th through April 12th. The twelve entries with the highest vote counts will be included in the calendar for 2022. The winning artists will be asked to submit their own personal photo to be included with a very short bio at the back of the calendar.
The SAA 2022 calendars, when published, will be available for sale to members and the public at the Cumming Arts Center, on the SAA website and at SAA monthly meetings (when we can begin meeting again) and at the Christmas Festival at Lanier Tech event, planned for November 2021. This was a very good fund-raising project in 2019 and 2020 as well as an effective way to get our organization and members recognized in our community. These calendars are great gifts.
