You must be over 18 to submit artwork, or I will have to get permission from your guardian.

You must be the creator and copyright holder of all artwork submitted (fan art not permitted). You give me permission to use your work for the project and generate publicity for the project. You will otherwise retain your copyright.You must also be a reasonable person who doesn’t make my life more difficult than it has to be or get me into legal trouble.This project is for fun, let’s keep it a fun project.


A) 3 high resolution artwork images (jpg preferred)

B) small mugshot of artist

C) Cut & Paste the sample below to YOUR data (Character limits will be enforced, please keep things brief)

Name: bob smith
Location: Beechwood

Bio: (200-500 characters…max about 4 sentences) Bob is a big mean guy who likes to paint in acrylic on wood. He went to art school in Toronto and never looked back. He traveled around the world and hated it so he moved back to Waterloo because he liked the weather. He loves flowers and likes painting things from his garden. He works on plywood.

You may also submit these and additional items to the gallery on the site, but an email should accompany the gallery.


All artwork should be as clear and nice as possible. I can fix some things in photoshop but CLEAR, LARGE, photos make my life easier. I can fix squareness if it is close.

THE BIGGER THE BETTER. PRINT NEEDS LARGE IMAGES. Anything under 1200 pixels across or 400kb will be automatically rejected. Print will be 300dpi, format for that if you can.

    I just found out about Talent Next Door in the KW Record at the weekend.You are right about local artist’s being out of touch. I would like to submit some of my work,but I guess I missed the boat. Will you be doing another book some time in the future?
    I was a member of the Canadian Aviation Artists Association for
    5 years They still have my Bio and artwork on their Website at if you would care to check it out…thank you.
