Call for 2023 Calendar Artwork

We’re looking for active, colorful, beautiful and/or funny images from Northeast or by artists based in Northeast that bring cheer and a feeling of togetherness, community. They can be but do not need to be tied to recognizable individual neighborhood landmarks. Jurors will look for variety in areas, seasons and perspectives.

Deadline: September 1, 2022 for the 2023 NE Calendar

Awards: Images will be chosen for the months, each receiving $200, and one as the cover, $400.

Artists receive up to 25 copies of the calendar if desired. Selection will be juried independent from the Arts District board.

Calendars will be distributed through the advertisers and artists in early December, free to the public. They make great housewarming or host/hostess gifts.
