Watch Video Explaining the Contest (or see the buttons at the top of every page to find fast information, especially the FAQ-"frequently asked questions")
The deadline is ASAP. Contest closes when I get 100. You are never to busy to send 1 email. (Ask the artists in KW who are kicking themselves for their procrastination who have to wait for next year because they thought they were too busy).

I HAVE GONE OVER THE FIRST PROOF AND SUBMITTED A CORRECTED VERSION hopefully the second proof will be back in 2 weeks and we are done! I am looking at having the party either 5-7pm Saturday Nov 27, or Dec 4. At the button factory in Uptown Waterloo. Confirmation when I get the book back again.
I have been playing with some Gallery software that I will eventually add to this site if anyone wants to publish their work here in the future. It is user friendly, similar in difficulty to emailing images. It has thumnails, medium size images, and full sized images. Comments, Ratings, Pageviews, and other features are all encompassed. I am still working out some bugs but if you want to play with what it looks like, log on to http://www.MachinesAndMagic.com
(note: there is a current bug that says uploads fail, but they don't, just ignore it. There is currently a small upload limit of 1MB for new users, that IS real)
The site is for testing purposes only, so all files will eventually be deleted. Don't upload bad things to it please.
(Possible Guelph & Cambridge Call for entries Next)
CALL FOR KW AREA ARTISTS!
(Deadline July 31, 2010)
I am looking for 100 artists to submit 2 or 3 pieces of art to be featured in a book showcasing local artists.
The envisioned format of the book will be 100 pages, 8x10", with each artist having their own page.
Each page will consist of the following:
- the artist's bio
- a thumbnail of the artist
- his contact information
- 2 or 3 artworks (with a brief description of each)
- (cut & paste sample on second link at top)
All layout and timeline terms subject to change at my discretion and let's have a fun project and not get anyone sued.
