Living Room Conversations’ 1st Art Contest

Official Rules

Submissions due November 1st, 2021!

Living Room Conversations is doing our first ever call for art submissions! We are excited to introduce new images on our merchandise and want our Living Room Conversations Community to be a part of it. You are all at the heart of this work.
We are looking for an original, bold design with the theme of respect.relate.connect. Feel free to interpret this theme however you would like! We’ll use the art to put on t-shirts in conjunction with our Fall Fundraising Appeal and will proudly highlight and reward our artist-winners.

Why an art contest?

We are committed to helping others respect, relate, and connect through conversation. Our hope is to expand our community and significantly increase the number of people having these conversations. We want you to be a part of that effort by sharing your talents and thoughts around our motto. We’re hoping to see our work through your eyes both through your design and with an artist statement. 

Submission & Judging Process

To submit your entry:
  • Your image. Submissions are limited to 10MB. If your image is selected we will need an image with a minimum of 120DPI(200DPI is ideal) and may need to make small changes, with your approval, to optimize printing.
  • An artist statement, maximum 100 words, answering the question: What does respect, relate, connect mean to you? How does it connect with your personal life?
  • A description of your work, maximum 100 words, answering the question: How is the concept of respecting, relating, and connecting through conversation reflected in your design?
