Rules and Guidelines: 2016/17 Directory Cover Art Competition
Entrants must be current residents of Northwestel’s operating area (Nunavut, NWT, northern BC and Yukon). Artists whose work has appeared on a Northwestel directory cover in the last four years are not eligible to enter. Artwork Guidelines Works to be considered must be two-dimensional original, hand-rendered artwork (such as acrylic, oil, watercolour, silkscreen, etc.) or three-dimensional works (such as sculptures and carvings). Although photography is considered an art form, we are not seeking this type of artwork at this time for the directory covers. Mechanically produced or assisted artwork, such as photographs or computer-generated images are ineligible. The artwork cannot already have been previously published, reproduced in any format or exhibited. The artist should not have future plans to sell, publish, reproduce or exhibit the artwork. A maximum of two pieces may be submitted by each artist.
Entries must be received no later than September 18, 2015. Late entries cannot be considered, due to the production schedule of the telephone directories. The winning entrants will be contacted shortly after the close of the selection process in October.
