Every 3 months G&SILK gives a chance to everyone to have their original designs become a beautiful silk scarf.
The Challenges are published at @gandsilk Instagram account.
The Challenge themes change, the rules are always the same:
Submissions are via Instagram using #gandsilk and posting your original design.
( only one post per artist). Of course mentioning it is an entry for the @gandsilk Open Call.
All of those who post pre existing artwork, make a lot of posts or post non related things are not considered.
We won’t accept random posts using the # without naming or following the brand and without the requested size.
The first selection is always based on the scarves that fit with the contest theme.
The second selection is based on G&Silk brand style.
And the last selection is based on the technical aspects of the artwork.
If selected via Instagram, you will have to send the TIFF. file for review in Photoshop.
TIFF. at 300 dpi 70x70 cm and RGB color 1998
The file must be sent with no watermarks.
With clean strokes.
If your work is not digitally created, make sure that it is properly digitalized,
with no pixelation, no blurry or cut elements, no unwanted dots
that could be considered as printing stains on the final silk scarf.
If selected it will be available at www.gandsilk.com for 3 months minimum.
All artists get 14% commission according to the price of the scarf.
All artists get mentioned as the designers of the scarf but under the brand G&Silk.
