call for submissions - christian seasons calendar 2016-2017

Your help in spreading the word to those who may be interested in this unique venture is very much appreciated ...

Artists are invited to participate in the upcoming issue of Salt of the Earth - The Christian Seasons Calendar for 2016/2017. This unique calendar follows the distinctive seasons of the Christian year and is distributed worldwide. View a sample of the current Christian Seasons Calendar online here.

Interested artists are encouraged to offer artwork that represents scripture readings and themes within the Christian Year. The scripture readings used for the 2016/2017 calendar will be those listed in Year A of the Revised Common Lectionary, which can be found online here. There is one page available for an image for each of the following seasons: Advent, Christmas, Lent, Holy Week and Easter. There are two pages available for Epiphany. There are four pages available for art in the Season after Pentecost. On these pages we seek images that portray Pentecost, All Saints Day and the Reign of Christ, as well as images particular to biblical texts included in the lectionary readings during this season of growth in discipleship.

The images will be published on an 8½" by 11" landscape page. Images that are landscape in format are most suited to this calendar.

If you would like to participate in this project please reply by email to uhilladm@shaw.ca with no more than ten images of your work. Deadline for submission is Wednesday, June 8th, 2016. Selected artists will be contacted by June 18, 2016 and asked to forward high definition images (300 dpi or better) of their art for inclusion in the calendar.

Artists will receive five complimentary copies of the calendar and will be paid $300 CAD for each image used. Artists retain reproduction rights to their art. The fee is paid for use of an image in this year's calendar, and portions of the image may be used in promotion of the calendar in print or on the calendar web site.

For more information about the calendar and the submission process email inquiries to uhilladm@shaw.ca
