Call out for FOOD FIGHT submissions 2012

The SNACK ATTACK – Edition
Food Fight is a yearly collaborative exhibition and accompanying publication produced by Sweets Workshop. The publication will be taking on an exciting all new format, which we will talk more about in the coming weeks!  Food Fight is all about food, pitting image against text, recipe against illustration, photograph against story. In the ring this year – SNACK ATTACK!!

We’re calling for submissions from artists and writers to contribute to the exhibition and publication. What we’re looking for are illustrations, design, photography, recipes, stories, poems and so on, that focus on the theme Snack Attack. It could be about your favourite snack, place to snack or an attack of the snack! 

The exhibition will run from 7th of October to 14th November 2012, with the launch of the publication on the 7th to co-inside with the Summer Hill Food Fair. YUM! The publication will be a limited edition print run. To have a look at what was on offer in previous years for  The Sweet Tooth Edition and The Pack a Picnic Edition.

If your artwork is selected it may feature in the publication and/or the exhibition (where it can be offered for sale). Any written piece or artwork chosen to be included in the Food Fight publication or exhibition will receive a free copy of the publication. 
 Submissions close on the 1st of September 2012. Email us your entry as a low res electronic file (pdf or jpg) to info@sweetsworkshop.com. If your work is chosen, we will contact you for high res files. If working digitally please make sure you work to 300dpi, and if working by hand we can organise high res scans. Please feel free to forward this invitation to anyone you think might be interested in contributing. 

For those of you who don’t know about Sweets Workshop we are a retail art gallery which exhibits and stocks art, decorative objects, giftware and independent publications with a strong focus on locally handmade items. Located in Summer Hill, our aim is to offer the community something original, sweet and within reach. We have a dedicated exhibition space, which can feature one particular artist/designer, object, artistic process or theme at a time. The exhibitions change regularly to incorporate as many artists and designers as possible. For information about us please visit our website www.sweetsworkshop.com

The selection criteria for Food Fight will be at the discretion of Sweets Workshop.
