The deadline is approaching: the painting competition for watercolour painters, themed ‘Culinary Delights’, this year, will end on 30th June. The pictures wanted for the Hahnemühle Calendar 2013 comprise refined dishes, traditional and local specialities, exotic fruit or still lifes as if from paradise. In the third international watercolour competition the pictures have to be a true feast for the eyes.
“In this competition, we combine two passions,” said Yvonne Häfner, the competition organiser. “Day by day I’m looking forward to the pictures from all over the world that literally whet your appetite.” Up to 30th June, Hahnemühle will accept solely digital versions of previously unpublished watercolours. The can be sent by email or – on CD – by post.
The standards: 40 x 30cm landscape format, the pictures have to be painted on Hahnemühle or Lana paper. The selection of the calendar pictures will be executed by an artist jury, with the originals having to be provided, for this step.
The painters of the victorious pictures will be rewarded with 10 copies of the Hahnemühle calendar’s limited edition as well as an exclusive package featuring Hahnemühle, Schmincke and Da Vinci painting utensils. The Hahnemühle Art calendar is a true rarity and consequently, having made it to the calendar represents an appreciated reputation boost for artists.
