An urban park with skyline, lined up flower pots on the balcony or a vegetable garden on the high-rise rooftop – show us your green oasis in an urban environment or your dream of it. Hahnemühle’s new painting competition is now open. “Nature in the City” is the trendy theme for our art calendar 2016. We look forward to many international submissions and want to reach the record participation from last year again. The bar is set high: 1,200 images from 500 artists from 46 countries were submitted for the 2015 calendar. So join in and tell others about the competition!
Our annual competition is open to all artists who like to paint, draw, illustrate, collage or print with traditional techniques. We call for entries of professionals and hobbyists. Each individual is eligible. The only condition: your artwork must be created on a paper by Hahnemühle or Lana. Each motif must be suitable for printing on the calendar in at least 40 x 30 cm in landscape format. To begin with, please submit digital files of your artwork. The upload portal on our website will be open end of February. Deadline is the 30.06.2015. A jury is going to select 36 images for the shortlist and will pick 12 winning designs for the arts calendar 2016 this autumn. Participation in this international competition promises world-wide reputation to artists. Hahnemühle´s art calendar is released in a limited edition only and is not for sale. Hahnemühle business partners all over the world get it every year as an exclusive ‘collectible’ and display the pictures all over the world. The winners will be awarded with ten calendars and a creative package with fine art papers by Hahnemühle.
Get inspired by all calendar motifs of the past years on our website.
