Food Art Manifesto
A Contest for Artists and Writers
As a follow-up to the Manifesto for a New Food Art (Click link to read), The Englewood Review is sponsoring FOOD ART MANIFESTO, an art and writing contest to encourage reflections by artists related to current conversations on food, place and the new agrarianism.
Read the Manifesto for a New Food Art.
While this document by no means calls for specific aesthetics or media, it does ask for artists to consider some basic ideals that have been associated recently with food, and particularly the new agrarianism (fresh, local, sustainable, etc.), as normative also for art-making.
Visual artists: Open to all media, although bear in mind that winning entries will appear in print, so some mediums may not translate as well to print. Send up to three (3) images as JPGs, 300 dpi, 6 inches in the largest dimension (save files as Yourlastname-1.jpg) to brent [at] englewoodreview [ d o t ] org, along with the attached entry form.
Writers: Writing entries may be poetry, fiction or non-fiction. Send up to three (3) entries, no longer than 1500 words each, as Word or RTF documents (save files as Yourlastname-1.doc) to brent [at] englewoodreview [ d o t ] org, along with the attached entry form.
NOTE: Previously published works will be accepted under the condition that the artist owns the rights to the work and grants permission (should the work be selected as a winner) for us to republish it.
