Art Submissions Wanted For VIRTUAL Auction 2021

Artists For World Peace is a Connecticut-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit striving to provide equity and resources to our communities across CT, Tanzania, and on Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota. For Mother’s Day of 2021, we will be holding a virtual PEACE WALL OF LOVE auction, continuing our multi-year 6 x 6 MOVEMENT, with all proceeds going towards bringing the Native American population of Rosebud Reservation free eye clinics, warm clothing, and other necessities. We are seeking compassionate, domestic and international artists interested in donating canvases to this annual juried show. 


Participation in this event is 1) a great opportunity for exposure for yourself and/or organization (we have featured 2500+ artists in our shows, and our 2020 virtual auction drew in thousands of visitors), 2) a chance to be considered for future live AFWP gallery shows across the U.S., and 3) a way to spread kindness for creatives who may want to assist in humanitarian efforts without jeopardizing their financial standing. 


Submissions are typically 6 inch x 6 inch canvases, although this year we are more flexible regarding canvas dimensions, if you would like to donate a that work you have already made. All mediums are welcome, though remember these will be shipped and must persevere through mailing. Contentwise, please express your subjective interpretation of what LOVE means. No depictions of violence. 


For large groups, we can drop-ship you up to 100 6”x6” canvases. For organizations, we are happy to advertise your logo and name, and are open to further discussion as to how we can collaborate to best promote you during the event. 




And ship your canvases to:

Artists for World Peace

P.O. Box 95

 Middletown, CT 06457

We are inviting visual and new media artists to submit their artwork for the exhibition program of the 8th Student International Film Festival.

For the last seven years, STIFF Festival has produced a rich accompanying program that elaborates and complements the thematic focus of its film program. With the emphasis on contemporary art practices, STIFF’s exhibition program gathers artists from all over the globe, dealing with relevant social, political, as well as intimate aspects of everyday life. 

This year the festival is giving attention to the Body, and the exhibition program aims to explore socially relevant ways of interpreting the body in a contemporary environment saturated with images. 

What is the relationship between a body and the moving image? Are we our bodies or is the body just merchandise we trade on the labor market and offer in intimate relationships? How to position ourselves in a world where objects move more freely than people?

When is our body an instrument of knowledge, interaction, and intimacy with the world, and when is it a space of discomfort and restriction? Do we allow our bodies to be playful?

We encourage a view of the body as productive and creative, the body as a process that changes its meaning and capacities depending on the context in which it resides.

As an accompanying festival program, the multimedia exhibition will aim to create a special sensory experience that will explore and enrich the subject of the body, challenging our ideas of corporeality and questioning the limits and the capacities of bodies through their constant and fluid interactions with the environment. 

We are inviting artists to submit photographs, GIF animations, video art, or any other form of digital artwork (video games, websites, applications, etc.) that deal with the subject of the body in the broadest sense. We welcome various perspectives, from conceptual to intimate approaches. 

The deadline for application is May 1st, 2021. 


– submissions are made via google form on the link

– submitted artwork must be original

– one person can submit a maximum of two artworks or one artwork series 

– the deadline for application is May 1st, 2021

– GIF animations must be looped in high resolution, profile H.264, minimal resolution 1920×1080, audio 16-bit resolution, stereo, 48000 Hz; up to 30 seconds of duration; with or without sound. 

– Video art must be up to 5 minutes in duration, high resolution, profile H.264, minimal resolution 1920×1080, audio 16-bit resolution, stereo, 48000 Hz; with or without sound. 

– Photography must be in minimal resolution 300 dpi

– Other digital work (video games, websites, applications, etc.) – no propositions

Call to Artists Submergence: Going Below the Surface with Orca and Salmon

You are invited to submit works to an innovative, multi-media exhibition on the theme of southern resident orca and Chinook salmon co-recovery. Submergence: Going Below the Surface with Orca and Salmon is the culminating project in a series of orca-salmon co/recovery projects created collaboratively by non-profit organizations Creature Conserve and the Endangered Species Coalition. Visual artists, writers, and audio-video artists are invited and eligible to contribute works for consideration. The exhibition will take place in the New Media and Atrium Galleries at Jack Straw Cultural Center in Seattle, WA. Selected works will be displayed in a multimedia exhibition during the month of June, 2021, Orca Month.


Submergence: Going Below the Surface with Orca and Salmon asks creatives to reimagine a future for our region, one where southern resident orca and salmon are once again thriving species. A future where Chinook and our other salmon species are able to navigate a free-flowing Snake River; where southern resident orca have enough Chinook salmon to eat; where reductions to pollutants address harmful accumulations of toxins in orca and salmon; and where vessel noise reductions improve the ability of orca to echolocate for salmon. This show invites artists, writers, and audio-visual creators to examine the science of orca-salmon co/recovery, to understand how and why these animals are imperiled, and to apply this cross-disciplinary collaborative model to an innovative exhibition centered on the co/recovery of orca and salmon.

An Ode to Adulting

An Ode to Adulting is a contemplation of adulthood, within and against a myriad  of backdrops. The simultaneity of being and adulthood/adulting is observed  through a week-long screening of films whose stories draw on the poetry of coming of age, “being of age”, and a latter part of agehood where often, it seems, a realization of failure and/or misguidedness in the performance of adult are had. And in some instances a contentedness of successfully though often chaotically adulting, is reached.


In human terms, the title adult not only refers to physical growth, but is highly attributed to the expectations laid out for the physically grown human being. These expectations emanating from both the individual and its society. The weight of these expectations often playing a significant role in the responses the adult has to life. These are not always directly communicated but through the performance of the ready adulting adults in a society, the one moving towards the position of adult uses these performances as mode of example to emulate, once they themselves assume the adult position.

Thus said, the exhibition also plays at juxtaposing the figure with the performance and expected performance of the adult figure. 


I am looking for artists who could contribute:

  • - film shorts(no longer than 20minutes) which will be included in the exhibition space for the duration of the      show


  • - A proposal of an intervention which can be held either online or physically in the space

The exhibition will be held in May 24-29th at the OnCurating Project Space in Zurich


DEADLINE: April 28, 2021

Please forward all proposals to agwele33 [op] gmail [punt] com, as well as any other enquiries to the same address.
