The new project is a call-out to all artists, poets, designers, amateur astronomers and pros, to share their artwork, poetry or images of the night and day sky, in order to create a collective scrapbook of stellar art which may eventually become a traveling art exhibit, a giant mosaic image, a coffee table book, and more!
Video Note: Audio is in French. If you like, turn on YouTube's auto-translate, closed-captioning so text is in your chosen language.
All submissions must be 10cm x 15cm, a 4x6 card (in the US). Paint, draw, sketch - Compose haikus and short poems - Take photos of the sky (both day and night). All art can be either horizontal or vertical on the cards.
There are 4 suggested categories for the postcards (entries may combine categories):
1. A sketch or a painting of the sky
2. An astronomical photo of the night sky
3. A scrapbooking photo montage
4. A Haiku or other short poem.
All artwork must be original and your own personal creation. By submitting the artwork, it will be considered a donation to Astronomers Without Borders and it may be used as a part of our web and outreach materials, or as a part of products sold to benefit the non-profit organization. Children may compose artwork, however it must be submitted by a parent or guardian. No artwork or images will be returned and will be used creatively as needed.
All photos and artwork can be sent to the following address:
La Maison de Voyageurs
5 Rue de Aires
F- 83630 Artignsoc-Sur-Verdon
