OPEN CALL / CALL FOR ENTRIES
Plush Stories : These Plush of Mine
We invite you to submit your best plush story along with a photo of
your plush toy for an upcoming Grumpy Bert art show. We're looking for
true, compelling personal plush stories that impacted your life. Whether from
your childhood or a recent find, we want to hear about it. The photo
must feature the plush toy and although nice, you don't have to
necessarily be in it. Only one photo per story. Maximum story
length-250 words. Deadline May 31 2012.
The stories and photos will be displayed at Grumpy Bert @ the DeKalb Market in Brooklyn, New York. This is only an exhibition show, no sales of your stories and photos will be made.
All ages are encouraged to apply. If you are a maker of plush toys, we are not looking for a product description. Unless it is connected to the story you are telling.
Please provide the following:
- Your Name
- Name of your plush toy
- Your City and State (Country too if outside of USA)
- Email address
- Story – 250 words or less
- Photo of plush – print quality / hi-res file (at least a minimum of 1200px)
