I apologised for the lateness on the last of these posts. Little did we know… No, you didn’t just imagine it – there was no Deadlines post in July. It was a HELL of a MONTH, people! Suffice to say, if it stays this hectic around here (watch this space for the 4, yes I said FOUR! shows opening within a week, starting Tuesday) this is likely to become a bi-monthly collection of deadlines. And, as always, I’m soliciting entries, so send me something in the format and it’ll go up the day I receive it. (But, like I mentioned, f.o.r.m.a.t.)
*** NEW ADDITIONS, including THE BIG ONE (you know, in Germany?)***
JOBS – THERE’S NEW ONES! It’s always a notable occurrence 😉
Now, more than ever, you might want to check out deadlines for yourself. (The main reason for no post from me was that I did not keep up with my Feedly stream of blogs in this last month – where I get my deadlines from – so it’s not unreasonable to assume that a few might be lurking in the shadows of the internet, waiting for you to happen upon them…)
- 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. Enough said.
- Snag’s Springboard – you can get that in an RSS feed, so each new entry will come straight to your chosen portal. America focused.
