As an artist, have you ever dreamed of seeing your story in the New York Times or Washington Post? Your artwork in National Geographic? Your studio featured by Lonely Planet or BBC Travel?
If so, here’s your chance.
The North American Travel Journalists Association National Conference is taking place for the first time in North Carolina, and right in our own backyard. From May 16-19, over 100 travel writers, representing the largest media sources and travel authorities in the world, will convene in Chapel Hill. The kick-off event will take place the evening of Tuesday, May 16, at the Barn at Valhalla in Chapel Hill, where the Arts Commission will showcase a collection of work representing the spirit and culture of Orange County and North Carolina. Artwork will be displayed throughout the grounds of venue and, as a selected artist, you will have the opportunity to attend the event and meet travel writers from around the country. Wall space is extremely limited, so 3-dimensional artists are encourage to apply. Artists residing in North Carolina may apply, but Orange County residents will be given priority.
To be considered, please send 3-5 high resolution images to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Wednesday, March 15th. Selected artists will be notified by Monday, April 3rd and will receive a $200 travel stipend.
