Painters: Submit Your Memorable Paintings From 2015


Attention all painters:

Send me up to three images of your most memorable paintings from 2015 for possible inclusion in my year-end blog: Memorable Paintings from 2015.

New for this year: 

The paintings selected for this year will appear online and also in a digitally-distributed and print-on-demand issue of PoetsArtists, co-curated by John Seed and Didi Menendez. The publication of PoetsArtists will include works of ten artists selected by John Seed and Didi Menendez. Each curator will be choosing five artists. To view last year's Huffington Post blog: Ten Memorable Paintings from 2014


Paintings in all media -- including oil, acrylic, watercolor and gouache -- will be considered. All types of painting, including abstract, representational, etc., are welcomed. Painters from anywhere in the world may enter. Paintings will be chosen by John Seed, based solely on his judgment and personal opinions.


Your entries must have been completed during the 2015 calendar year. Only three paintings may be entered per artist. If you have already submitted work to Didi Menendez of PoetsArtists, please don't also submit to John Seed: Your work is already being considered.

Entries must be made directly by artists: Please no submissions from friends, dealers, family members etc. All entries must be received by midnight (Pacific Time) on Sunday, December 6th, 2015

The blog featuring the chosen works will be posted on or before Monday, December 21st, 2015.

No prizes or complimentary copies of any kind will be awarded: being included in the blog and in the publication is the only "prize" available.

Artists whose work is accepted for the publication will be notified before we go to print.

How to Enter:

E-mail NO MORE THAN THREE jpeg images to

The subject line of the email should read: "Memorable Paintings 2015 entry." Images may be no larger than 1000 pixels in either height or width. Please don't expect an email reply as I will be looking over many hundreds of entries.


Include a few sentences about yourself and/or the painting you are submitting. I'm looking forward to seeing your work!
