CALLING ALL ADLAND ARTISTS.
Take your passion project to the public stage.
OUTFRAME is your chance to have your personal art displayed on some exceedingly large canvases in highly public places. It's OUTFRONT's way of acknowledging that many in the advertising creative community have real art that is worth sharing with real people in the real world. And because we have gorgeous canvases for that, we want to share an opportunity for the (real) Artists of Adland.
SO BRING IT ON.
OUTFRAME is open to the professional creative community, either working in an Advertising Agency Creative Department or working directly for a brand. We are looking for those of you with committed day jobs who don't have the luxury of excess time. We want to celebrate the art that represents the passion and pleasure of what you create when the client is not looking over your shoulder.
Send us unpublished entries created using Watercolors, Pencil & Charcoal, Acrylic, Drawing, Pastels, Oils, Mixed Media, Photography, Video, and Digital.
ALL EYES ON THE PRIZE.
The OUTFRAME winner will have her/his art showcased on OUTFRONT canvases across the US for the holiday season (December 15- 31). For all (ok, most) of America to see. The biggest canvases in Adland is a wonderful way to exhibit art that is just too good to be left in a drawer, portfolio or event on a single wall.
Additionally, because we believe in the power of our medium and the power of "good," we will provide digital billboards for the charity of your choosing during the month of January.
So, for the holiday season your artwork shared at scale (size and scope!) and for January we promote a charity close to your heart.
