@ Jennifer and Keith, I think that the meaning behind that part of the text you’re judging, is that also people can participate who usually don’t make art.

I suppose the timeline is uncertain because libraries are closed (at least in my country, NL, and by this mail art call I learned that this is also the case in the US (at least the mentioned city).
Apart from that, 3D makes me think of pop-up mail art, which I’ve never made before so I think it inspiring :-)

In the past I joined several projects at and the women behind this website are great, creative, not-for-profit and caring people.
So - despite (also) my backlog I’d be happy to join :-)

Hear, hear Jennifer. Yes, this was obviously written by someone who does not make art...
I'll also note that the term "timeline" is a bit ambiguous. What is one to take  from that? Is that the deadline for submissions, or just some randomness?
3D objects by their very nature will occupy more space than a 2D card, so a third measurement should be given to clarify said parameters. And yes, please, let's give these poor suffering artists some distraction from the goings-on of the world outside that they've only been dealing with for their entire lives.

Some of the wording in current online art things does amuse me. 'We hope ... a little bit of art will help you to distract your worries for a moment.' They have no idea, do they, what obsessive art-makers some of us are, and that being told to drop everything else and stay at home means I for one am breathing a sigh of relief and just getting on with what's really most important - the backlog of art projects!
