Edgar Allan Poe-stal
A Mail Art Competition for The Big Read
by the Yuba-Sutter Regional Arts Council
Anyone can enter. There is no cost other than the postage on your piece. (Please understand that we can’t accept Postage Due items.)
No artwork will be returned or, ahem, considered purloined. The Arts Council reserves the right to display (physically and electronically), give, donate, award, auction or otherwise sell your entered artwork to benefit the arts in the Yuba Sutter region it serves. You may retain and use scans/photos of your entry.
One work will be deemed “Best in Poe” and the artist awarded US $100 and a certificate.
Theme Your mail art piece must be inspired by the life, themes or work of Edgar Allan Poe and you must tell us how/why.
Entry Procedures The entry process is two-fold:
(1) send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Mail Art” in the Subject Line. In the email provide your name and your city/town, state/province and country. We’ll use that email to contact you if you are the winner.
Also in the email, in 50 words or less, give us the title of your work, if any, and (mandatory) what work by Poe inspired your piece and what about that story or poem spoke to you. Entries without this element will not be considered.
(2) mail us your art piece. All work must be postally mailed without an envelope; i.e. the postage has to be ON the actual piece of art. (It’s a Mail Art Competition, after all!) Not to be redundant, but: no email or fax submissions will be accepted.
Mail with postmark no later than Oct. 10, 2012 to:
Edgar Allan Poe-stal
P.O. Box 2504
Marysville, CA 95901 USA
Note: You may enter more than one piece of art. You may include description of your entries in the same entry email
but each art piece must be postally mailed separately.
For Artwork Requirements, complete information and contact organization: Yuba Sutter Arts Council
Deadline Entries must be postmarked no later than October 10, 2012, regardless of which side of the International Date Line you’re on. We’ll start displaying pieces online on the 12th, in the order received.
