Monthly Deadlines Calendar

Update: September 2016

Check out Alliages – The contemporary art jewelery agenda for more deadlines, as well as info about openings, events etc. Also you can add your own thanks to their interactive calendar.

Deadlines December 2015

I made it! It’s still December where I am! Here are your December deadlines, folks!

Savour this post – if you’re the sentimental type – as the time has come for me to leave shouting about deadlines to the experts/organisations that we all pay money to, to put these details out for us.

As I’ve mentioned before, but permit me one last time… Here’s most of the places I find this info. Good luck!

  • Artist Trust – Washington State, mostly
  • Juried Art Services – o’course they only know the deadline’s they’re operating
  • crafthaus – there you have to be a member (at last check it’s $75/year), but Brigitte publishes all the calls that get sent to her, and members post their own
  • Sign up to the newsletter of your favourite/local gallery, or to the blog of regularly occurring symposia/conferences, like the annual ECU symposium that always brings a wealth of opportunities.
  •  CaFE – Call For Entry site. Check out the site and sign up for email updates. America focused. (I’ve given up re-listing appropriate deadlines from their newsletter – it’s just too long…)
  • In the UK? Sign up to the benchpeg newsletter,  professional jewellery news, delivered weekly. Euro/Britain focused.
  • Klimt02. Newsletter. Epic site. Deadlines.
  • Snag’s Springboard – you can get that in an RSS feed, so each new entry will come straight to your chosen portal. America focused.
