June 2014's Cover Page Art Contest: Trafficking

If only slavery was in the past and remained locked away in a history where we (as a collective human race) could reflect about a horrific time where injustice was widespread ... but alas, slavery is among us today and, often times, is right in front of our eyes and yet we don't see it. 

The Art Contest for June 2014 is in recognition of Trafficking and giving a face to the nameless babies, children, teens and adults who live or perished while imprisoned.

A few basic guidelines for Women in Art 278 Magazine's Art Contest  ... 
  1. We welcome literal and abstract interpretations of the theme. 
  2. The artist must submit a write up about their artwork and how it connects with the theme. The write up should be no less than 500 words. Artists may write in their native language. We can work together to translate it to English. For samples of the types of artwork that won (and their write up), we suggest checking out previous magazine issues (as found on www.ART278.org). 
  3. The artwork must either be vertical (to fit the formatting for the cover) or must have dimensions large enough so we can crop the artwork (or have it span across the cover - back to front) 
  4. Entry to the cover page art contest is included in the purchase of a single or double page spread. So, even if an artist isn't selected, their artwork will still be shown in the issue. We think this approach is the best (and most fair) for our artists.
