The Call for Artist Entries is now open for FUNERIA's 5th biennial international Ashes to Art® competition to present the most original and superbly crafted contemporary funerary urns and personal memorial art being made by artists and designers today. The exhibition opens with a catered reception under a full moon on Saturday, October 23, 2010 at Art Honors Life®--FUNERIA's Northern California gallery. The exhibition will also be presented online to engage registered site visitors in voting for a People's Choice Award-winning work.
The competition is open to artists and design teams worldwide working in all sculptural media. Eminently qualified jurors will choose finalists from digital entries that demonstrate new, original, evocative, beautifully crafted objects that are intended to contain all, or a portion, of an individual's cremated remains, or that can otherwise be used to celebrate a unique life. A Best of Show cash award, additional cash and non-cash prizes will be selected. A printed catalogue will be available. Additional rules and opportunities are described in the downloadable Prospectus. The entry processing fee is $45 for 1-3 entries. Two additional detail images per entry are allowed at no cost. An online entry process will be added to FUNERIA's website in the next several weeks. Mail-in entries can be posted anytime up to the August 9, 2010 deadline. Questions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
