Artist Opportunities from the Art Deadlines List

Editor's Note: We received this via email on May 31. Opportunities and
calls to artists should still be valid though some of the deadline dates
have passed. AS always, we strongly encourage all artist to investigate
the copyright policies of each show they consider entering, particularly
if they are online opportunities, so they know exactly where they stand.
Please click the Artists Bill of Rights image link in our left sidebar or
visit http://artists-bill-of-rights.org/ to scan their list of competitions
and see their assessment of the copyright for each competition's policies.
If you don't know how to fill out the metadata in your images so your
copyright notice travels with your image (when it's not stripped by some of
the less scrupulous competitions), or if you don't know what that is and 
why it's important, please visit http://www.embeddedmetadata.org/goto?supportsemm
to learn more. You can find a tutorial on how to add metadata to your 
images here: https://blogs.soartists.com/ArtMatters/adding-metadata-to-your-art-images-tutorial/
and more posts with great information on these topics here:

This list has not been edited to restrict it to opportunities for which Oregon 
artists only will be eligible. Please share with artist friends here and everywhere!
