[BKARTS] Announcing The MCBA Prize



Artists and friends of the book arts,
 
It is my pleasure to announce the establishment of a new book art award, The
MCBA Prize. This new international honor awarded by Minnesota Center for
Book Arts is the first of its kind to recognize book art from across the
field and celebrate the diversity of this vital discipline. All artists who
use the book format as their primary means of expression are encouraged to
apply. A distinguished panel of jurors, themselves leaders in the field,
will consider all eligible work, from hand-printed fine press books, to
inexpensive pamphlets, to one-of-a-kind sculptural works. In total, over
$8,000 will be awarded to four finalists and one winner. Entries must be
received by March 6, 2009. The winner will be announced at a gala
celebration on July 25, 2009.
 
The award of The MCBA Prize is an important component of MCBA¹s 2009 Book
Art Biennial, a combination of presentations, peer discussion sessions and
hands-on workshops exploring the efficacy of artists¹ books as agents of
social change and activism. Registration materials for the Biennial will be
available January 1, 2009.
 
I am very excited to present this new award and ask for your help in
spreading news of the opportunity to book artists around the globe. Further
details, submission guidelines and entry forms for The MCBA Prize will be
available for download from the Minnesota Center for Book Arts website
www.mnbookarts.org beginning November 17, 2008.
 
Thank you for your assistance and support. If you have questions, please
email me at jrathermel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
