Entry Deadline: Mar. 15

Ashland Hills Hotel & Suites

ELIGIBILITY: We are accepting original artwork about or inspired by dreams.* You do not need to be a member of IASD or a conference attendee to participate in the IASD Juried Dream Art Exhibition. You can exhibit whether you are competing for a prize or not.

*The jurors will be open-minded about the relationship of the artwork to dream content when selecting the art pieces, so long as the work was inspired by a dream or dreams during sleep (including lucid dreams) or by shamanic dreaming. Note: an entrant can create a piece inspired by someone else’s dream.

MEDIA: All two-dimensional and multi-dimensional media will be considered, including painting, drawing, collage, sculpture, video, and installation art. We are not able to accept performance art or entries that are strictly sound-oriented (e.g., music).

Art works that are unusually large or require extensive installation may not be accepted but will be considered.

CRITERIA considered by the jury in reviewing entries for the exhibition will include:

– Professional quality. –
– Relation to dreams or dreaming. See the Eligibility definition earlier.
– Completeness and quality of supporting documents. Incomplete documentation or vague, unclear statements may disqualify an entry.
– Quality of digital files. Out of focus, poorly composed, or difficult-to-see images will be rejected.
– Artwork that is deemed by the jurors to be offensive, discriminatory, or in bad taste may be refused.
– All work accepted for the show will be added to the IASD online dream art galleries, unless you specifically request that we not do so.

ART AWARDS: Cash awards will be offered for works chosen from among those accepted for display at the conference. In your submission form, you can indicate that you do not want your works to be considered for the awards. Criteria for awards will be originality, integrity, universality, and relevance to dreams and dreaming.

HOW TO ENTER: All works must be submitted using the Online Entry Form. See https://iasdconferences.org/2023/call-for-art/ for specifications and additional instructions. There is $40 submission fee.
