This is a juried exhibition.

CALL FOR ART: We invite anyone with ties to the bleeding disorder community to participate in the exhibition using the online form below to submit their work.

We’re encouraging folks to think outside the box. Submit your creativity in any form! MUSIC: FOLX has joined forces with bleeder music aficionados Blood Vibrations to bring their recent compilations of music from the community to the exhibition. FOLXve already accomplished in music, FOLX is calling this experience the Blood Vibrations Listening Center.

Deadline

All entries must be received by  11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time (EST) on August 26th, 2014.

Eligibility

Open to anyone within the bleeding disorders community. You do not need to attend the Annual Meeting to participate. Entries must be original work.

Criteria

  1. NHF's Annual Meeting is a community event. Therefore, subject matter must be appropriate for all ages. Entries containing profanity, violence or nudity will not be accepted. Decisions regarding subject matter are at the sole discretion of the jury and cannot be appealed.
  2. This is a BIG opportunity to showcase creativity in the bleeding disorders community. However, there is a LIMITED amount of space available to properly hang the exhibition. You have to start somewhere, right? In lieu of sacrificing a thoughtful visual cadence, jurors with consider how well each entry relates to the other submissions. This is how exhibition curators consciously create conversations between artworks. At the point when available space is exhausted, this process will finish.
  3. Lastly, the jury will take an active approach to select works that include a diverse representation of voices from the entire community.

But do not worry, all submissions will be exhibited in an online digital archive as participants in this inaugural event. Further, any entries not in the physical exhibition will be immediately considered for The Art Stars Trading Card Series: Volume 3.
