Call for artists - new book - Ceramics Today

Schiffer Publishing, Ltd., a leading publisher of art-quality reference, art, and design books, is
calling for images for an upcoming new reference book, Ceramics Today. We are looking for
beautiful, professional quality photography of your current artwork in ceramics. All materials
submitted will be reviewed and either a letter of acceptance will be sent or, if the material isn’t
suitable for this project, the return of the materials sent will be forthcoming.

Contributors are also credited on the page with the photo caption information, the introductory
information about themselves, as well as in listings providing each artist’s contact information.

For each artist participating, we need:
1. A brief description of your work and the techniques employed for use in the text of the book for each item submitted.
2. Examples of the various forms of ceramic art you create, captured in any of the following formats: slides; digital imagery, requiring an image with 400 dpi JPG in Adobe RGB color mode at a 4” x 6” size in the raw or fine data format; transparencies; or glossy 4” x 6” or larger photographs. All materials need to be properly identified for return once the project is complete. These need to be high quality images you would be proud to enter into any juried art show ... considering they will be in print for some time to come throughout the United States, as well as in England, Italy, and Japan. Materials accepted for the book remain safely with the publishing house until the book is finished and are then returned to the contributors, after approximately 6 months after receipt of the final contribution.
3. Caption: Artist’s name, title of art, identification of object form, media, technique, measurement, date, courtesy line as needed (i.e. both contributor’s and photographer’s credit).
4. Please provide a return address so your materials may be returned when this project is complete and identify each image with your name.
