Recycled Art Submission Call

Introduction

We are making an effort to save the planet with art by placing a call for artwork made from recycled materials. The works should be made in some way from a recycled object. For example artwork painted on magazine paper or other printed materials like phone books or postcards, metal objects, old photos, broken plates and glass, old jeans used as canvas, recycled paper, old maps, bags made from plastic bags, plastic used as a surface, etc. The artworks should also save the new collectors wallet and wall space.

Mediums

Any medium works including collages. See notes above about surface.

How To Submit

This call is open to members and subscribers at the $5 tier or higher or use the submission button below if you are not a member. Prepare your images per our guidelines. Head over to your universal form to submit via your prefered platform. Make sure to have a CV ready to upload. Make sure your images are titled correctly and include in the form text area what recycled materials were used.

Virtual Exhibition & Bidding

The artwork created for this call will be exhibited online on this website (Hashtag Art Magazine). The value of the artwork should be less than $1000 including shipping worldwide. The storefront will serve the purpose of a “buy now” or social media bidding through Instagram. The artworks will be available online to buy for one week timeframe after they go up on the storefront. Artists are responsible to ship the artwork to the new buyer.

We will keep 10% of any sales which will go towards our continued support of artists and making future opportunities available. Artists will be sent a PayPal payment based on 90% of the sold price. This includes works which sold as a “buy now” or the final price sold through a bid on Instagram.

Time Frame and Deadlines

Submit your entries by November 1st, 2019. This call is being curated by Didi Menendez. All entries will be sent a notification of acceptance or rejection. Although most entries will be accepted based on this call there could be some works which simply do not fit our aesthetics for Hashtag Art Magazine. Rejections are not a reflection if your work is good or bad. It may simply not be a good fit for what we are looking to showcase.

The artworks will be up ready to sell by Black Friday. That is the Friday after Thanksgiving which this year falls on November 29, 2019. The works will be up until December 6th which is the First Friday of the month. Bidding closes at 7 PM EST.

Artworks which are purchased as “buy now” will be taken down from Instagram from bidding. If you have any questions please leave them on your platform or email Didi Menendez directly.
