Each year, the Multifaith Action Society invites artists to submit works of art for publication in our upcoming Multifaith Calendar.

The theme for our upcoming 2024 edition is:  Reclaiming Our Happiness

Deadline
 for submissions:  31 January 2023

We believe this theme is open to a wide variety of interpretations and leaves open the possibility for a rich array of artistic submissions.

Over the course of the past few years, we have endured a series of unprecedented global urgencies, and many of us now feel a burning passion - whether newfound or reinvigorated - to help affect positive change on a grand scale. And yet, before we can effectively tackle the many and monolithic issues of the day, we have a responsibility to check in with ourselves and engage in some 'inner housekeeping', as it were - to clarify our answers to some seemingly simple, yet fundamentally important questions. Perhaps most importantly of all, "What makes me happy?"

Whether it's gazing up a beautiful sunset on a warm summer evening, welcoming a newborn child into the world, or the excitement of exploring a new place, everyone can fondly recall a moment in which they felt truly happy. But how, after having endured the hardships of the last few years, can we bring ourselves to not only inhabit, but ultimately embody that feeling? To elevate ourselves to a place where we can inspire feelings of joy in others and move forward with assurance that we're ready and able to affect positive the change we so sorely need.

Look inside and see what will make us smile once again and continue to build hope for the future. We hope this gives you an idea of the fertile space we hope to explore in the 2024 Multifaith Calendar: Reclaiming Our Happiness.

Submission Guidelines.....  Artists can submit up to 5 works for consideration and artwork on this theme can be submitted in any medium. All artists are invited to submit including those who have never been featured in the Calendar and those who have been featured in past editions. Ultimately, the interpretation of the theme will be determined by the overall collection of images received.

How We Pay Artists.....  Selected artists will be offered an honorarium of $250 per monthly calendar image, $500 for the cover image, and $100 for smaller inset images placed throughout the Calendar. In addition, featured artists will receive a set of complimentary Calendars once published.

How to Submit Entries.....  Submit digital images (up to 5) in low resolution (jpg/72dpi) to: artsubmissions@multifaithaction.org

Should a piece be chosen, we will contact the artist and request a high resolution version of the image (min 400 dpi).

Additional information can also be found on our Multifaith Calendar web site.

Address any questions to: artsubmissions@multifaithaction.org
Best of luck and we look forward to your submissions!
