The International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals Foundation™ (iaedp.com) is proud to present its annual “Imagine Me Beyond What You See” Body Image Mannequin Art Competition, created in 2010 to promote healthy awareness and acceptance of body images. The competition incorporates mannequins to help create a unique and realistic palette for artistic expression.
This is a first call for entries, accepted from October 15, 2016 through December 15, 2016. Judging is based on clarity of theme, creativity and originality, quality of composition and design and the overall impression and presentation.
The contest is open to everyone; however, iaedp encourages treatment centers and private practices with art therapists to work with patients to provide entries. Mixed media may be used and mannequins can be male or female forms in different body shapes and sizes. Entries must be electronically submitted to iaedp using photographs in jpeg format, high (200+) resolution files for enlargement, photos showing 4 different angles, and agree to sign an artist release.
The art competition winner will be spotlighted at the 2017 Annual Symposium held in Henderson, Nevada at the Green Valley Resort and Spa from March 21 – 26, 2017. Silent Auction held during Symposium for sale of artwork with proceeds going to the iaedp Foundation. “Every year we are inspired and humbled by the creative expression of participating individuals and treatment centers. This year, we look forward to another diverse and powerful roster of mannequin submissions.”
