All ceramic artists, both US and international, making functional, sculptural, installation, performance, and social practice-based work are invited to apply to Ceramics Monthly‘s annual readership-wide contest! This year’s theme is “(Im)Balance.”  Whether you employ one or both of these concepts in your forms and surfaces or in the way a final piece is used, we can’t wait to see your work!

Selected artists will have their work published in the September 2021 issue of the magazine.
To be considered for the “(Im)Balance” competition, please submit the following materials and a $10 processing fee via Submittable by June 22, 2021:

Up to five high-resolution (300 ppi) digital images that are at least 2500 pixels in the largest dimension (or at least 5×7 inches in print size at 300 dpi resolution). The images can show five different works, or they can be a combination of overall and detail shots of fewer than 5 works.

Complete caption information for each image including materials, processes used, firing temperature, dimensions, and date completed
