The Missouri Arts Council has announced its Frame It! competition, a contest that features art in local communities as seen through an empty picture frame.
Submissions will be edited into a video that will feature the Council’s new logo and tagline and will be used to promote the arts across the state. Entries must be a photo or a video clip less than three minutes in length. Artwork must be shot through an empty picture frame and can include pieces such as a painting that inspires, a public sculpture, a performer exhibiting the emotions of his/her art, or any other site that depicts “the state of the arts” in your community.
Entrants will have their work shown before an audience at the State Capitol during the Missouri Arts Awards and will receive a DVD copy of the video for use on their personal Web sites. The video will be promoted on the MAC Web site and through mass e-mails.
Among the rules: The participant must not have granted any person or entity other than MAC the right to use the video/photos. Submitted work will not be accepted or eligible if it includes content that is inappropriate for family viewing. By submitting your photos or video you grant the Missouri Arts Council the right to use your work in original or altered form or format in broadcast, Web cast, podcast, link or display for purposes of this contest and other promotional uses.
