About LA-MAF: iPhoneo-Graphic
This group is now open for submissions. We are looking for artists who want to help us generate a high-end set of art posters to be used in our PR campaign for the LA Mobile Arts Festival 2012. Please read the rules below for details on what to submit.
For more on the festival take a look at our LA-MAF website at http://www.iPhoneArt.com/LA-MAF/
To enter your work here, please read the following artistic challenge:
THEME: Pioneering the mobile arts. Based on LA Mobile Arts Festival venue: a historic airplane hanger.
CHALLENGE: Create aviation-based and pioneer-related posters or imagery to promote LA Mobile Arts Festival 2012. Take a look at the poster representing this group for inspiration.
â¢ Relevance to SMAS as an historic airplane hangar-turned-contemporary arts community
â¢ Imaginative visualization of the term "mobile art" as it takes off worldwide.
â¢ Success in capturing potential sponsor/participants interest in this pioneering art form
1. Research and download old historic, public domain imagery of early aviation pioneers. Think Write Brothers. Think flying machine contraptions. Anything that might metaphorically evoke the "mobile arts" and the idea of a pioneer. The flickr commons is a great place to find historic public domain images. Here are a couple of links to get you started:
We can also send you a packet of imagery to get you going if you like, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, subject line: aviation imagery request
2. App away, creating images that relate to our âpioneering mobile artistâ theme
3.Add text based on our own sample poster (see above link) âor submit images only and leave it to us to create the text.
4. iPhoneArt.com will review all submissions and select those suitable for collaboration.
We retain the right to use any image entered for the sole purpose of publicizing LA Mobile Arts Festival 2012. Submitted images may be used online and in print media. As the creator, your name will appear on reproductions of the work online, in print, or at the festival. If an artist's poster is used in full and selected to sell at the LA Mobile Art Festival, the artist will receive 80% of all profits. If we incorporate your image into our own design, with your consent, the profits will be shared 50/50.
So think it over and show us what you come up with!.
While we'd ask that the images for the poster be created on a mobile device, if you need to use additional means to complete the graphics, we will still accept those submissions.
But also please feel free to submit images with no text, as we can have our designers work on the typography in conjunction with your imagery.
This is a fun and very exciting challenge, but I have one question...Are we allowed to put the design together in a desktop software such as Indesign or does it need to be iphone only?
