Artists of all ages who are blind or visually impaired are invited to submit artwork for the thirteenth annual international art competition, APH InSights 2006. Last

year, 526 entries were received. From these, jurors selected eighty pieces for the exhibition, which was shown in Louisville in October.

Artists may enter artwork created in any visual art medium, including (but not limited to), painting, drawing, printmaking, fiber, metal, or wood. Award winners receive

a cash award and a ribbon. They are invited to come to Louisville to receive their awards at the October meeting of Ex Officio Trustees. Last year, twelve award-winners attended the presentation. (While APH cannot pay the full travel cost of those attending, a stipend to assist with travel is available.)

There are two deadlines: April 1 is the deadline for entries from students in preschool through high school; April 15 is the deadline for entries from adult artists.

Competition rules and forms that may be printed and filled out will be posted on the website by the end of February. Artists may also contact APH to request a copy of the entry form and rules of the competition: 800/223-1839, ext. 357 or email Roberta Williams at: rwilliams@aph.org.
