9th International Painting Annual: A Juried Publication of Works of Recent Contemporary Painting 


Launched in 2010, the International PAINTING Annual (INPA) is a product of the non-profit Manifest Press, and a complementary project to the award-winning International Drawing Annual project (INDA) which was launched in 2005 and the award-winning International Photography Annual (INPHA) launched in 2012. The goal of the INPA is to support the recognition, documentation, and publication of excellent, current, and relevant works of painting from around the world. As a carefully crafted peer-juried book, the INPA enables Manifest to assemble a diverse array of works from around the world, without the limitation of physical availability, gallery space, or shipping logistics.

A wide variety of approaches to painting are encouraged for submission, including a range of painting types, from the most academic to the most experimental, but all with some relevance to the artists' honest understanding of the practice of "painting."

 

Works that challenge the common notion that painting must be made with 'paint' are also welcome.

 
Open to any media applicable to the practice of painting including but by no means limited to traditional painting media. Printmaking, digital/new media, photography, sculpture, drawing, installation, etc., are all possibly valid.
Each artist/author selected for inclusion in the INPA will receive one softcover complimentary copy of the publication. The books produced for this ongoing project have increased in page count and print quality each year, with the most recent publication reaching nearly 200 pages in length. In 2011, the INDA 5 was awarded a national silver medal award from the Independent Publishers Association in their New York City ceremony, and in 2013 the INPHA 1 received a bronze medal award in the same ceremony, as did the INDA 8 in 2015. Manifest's books are distributed to bookstores and university libraries across the country, including museum bookstores, and are available through Amazon.com as well as at Manifest Gallery and on the Manifest website. Arts patrons, artists, professors, and art students around the world collect our publications. The books are offered at an academic discount to professors, students, and institutions of learning around the world.
 
Awards and Cash Prizes

First, Second, and Third Place awards for works of painting will be decided by the jury committee. Each award winner will have a brief artist's statement included in the publication. There will be three cash prizes of $1200, $500, and $300 for first, second, and third place winners.

 

NOTE: As this is a BOOK project, works that are not otherwise available (i.e. physically) may be submitted for consideration. All that is required of accepted artists is a print-quality hi-res digital image of accepted works. All artists selected for inclusion receive a complimentary copy of the finished book.
