AARP Call for Artists

Calling All Artists for the
AARP Foundation 2011
Calendar Contest!

The AARP Foundation invites artists to submit original pastel, oil, acrylic, or watercolor paintings between March 24 and June 4, 2010 as part of their AARP Foundation 2011 Calendar Contest! (Amateur artists only.)

AARP Foundation will select 14 paintings for their annual calendar — and one could be yours! In addition to being featured in the 2011 calendar, the winning artwork will be exhibited during this year’s AARP 2010 National Event and Expo taking place in Orlando, FL, September 30 - October 2, 2010!

The theme for the 2011 Calendar Contest is “Everyday Gifts.”  The 2010 theme is “There’s Nowhere I’d Rather Be,” and you can purchase a 2010 calendar here.

“Everyday Gifts” calendar will celebrate everyday life and experiences most people take for granted. Artists are requested to submit one image; entries should feature a depiction of a cherished moment that inspires gratitude and joy.
To Enter Your Artwork:
  1. Take a photograph of your best piece of art that depicts “Everyday Gifts.” Photos should be converted to a color slide or burned to a CD as a JPEG file. (Slides and CDs will not be returned.)
  2. Fill out our “Everyday Gifts” Calendar Contest Official Entry Form.
  3. Review the Official Rules.
  4. Send your completed entry form and color slide or CD of your artwork to:
    AARP Foundation 2011 Calendar Contest
    PO BOX 93028
    Long Beach, CA 90809-3028.
