Limited spaces have opened up in this years calendar. If you would like to participate, have amazing skills and a strong portfolio you are encouraged to apply for a position.

How do people contribute to the Anthro Calendar?

Rare occasionally has openings for new artists to join the team and contribute artwork for an edition. The selection process can vary and is not set. There can be an open call for artists to apply with their portfolios or the producer can personally invite an artist.

Remember that there are not always openings. With only 12 months in the year there is obviously limited spaces for artwork in the calendar. The producer may be satisfied with the existing line-up of artists and wish to keep it the same.

What factors affect an artist's chance of selection or invitation?

Rare looks for exceptional artists and top of the line contributions. You can view the standard of art the producer wishes contributors to aspire to here: anthrocalendar.deviantart.com/…
Before applying, an artist should make sure their portfolio contains full coloured works of this nature. An artist will never be selected on a "promise of potential", only proven experience.

Other factors include popularity, previous contribution, location and willingness to purchase copies of the calendar for private resale. Rare is a product and it's purpose is to generate profits for the artists. The more copies printed and sold over the world the better the profit margin.


Requirements?

Produce an 8.5x11 inch full colour work - theme and subject TBA.
Final art deadline is Aug/Sep with milestones in between.
Artists will be invited to join our group on Livejournal to receive and contribute feedback on works in progress.
While it is not mandatory, artists are encouraged to buy calendars at cost for resale at conventions and other avenues.

Please send links to your portfolios anthrocalendar@ashalind.com by April 30.

You can highlight particular pieces if you want by linking them individually. Please also introduce yourself and tell us why you should be invited. If you have already sent your portfolio prior to this, we have a record of it but feel free to touch base again.
