CALL FOR ENTRIES
IMAGES OF RESILIENCE
An International Fundraising Competition
Juror: Teresa Lunt
Deadline for Entries: February 1, 2021
I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.
The National Association of Digital Artists (naDA) is pleased to announce a special international competition for photographers and digital artists as a fundraising effort to support a vital member of our community, Meri Walker (aka the iPhoneArtGirl). Meri lost her home and all her belongings in the fire that ravaged Talent, OR on September 8, 2020 – a devastating loss. Meri needs significant support to rebuild and reestablish her life. naDA is proud to support the efforts of her friends, family and others in the mobile art community in this endeavor. To that end, all entry fees, sales commissions and other donations or proceeds from this international online competition will be contributed to the GoFundMe campaign (gofundme.com/f/help-meri-walker-rebuild) that has been set up for Meri.
Artwork can be submitted in one, two or all three categories.
Digital Photography: This category includes photography that uses a digital sensor to record the image, including DSLRs and mobile phone or tablet cameras.
Digital Painting/Drawing: Digital painters use software and apps, whether mobile or computer-based, to draw and paint their images.
Digital Mixed Media: This category includes work in which artists may combine and manipulate images, and may use mark making, drawing and painting, and text using a variety of apps, whether mobile or computer-based.
Artists must certify that they have permission for all imagery used in their submissions. Neither the National Association of Digital Artists nor the Cape Cod Art Center nor any juror working with either organization is responsible for any unauthorized use of images.
Artists may submit as many entires as they like,
but no individual may be awarded more than two prizes.

Juror's Statement - Teresa Lunt
Resilience is not just survival but a kind of strengthening as a result of a severe trial, like the development of a muscle through a repeated tearing down. As the theme for this show, I will be looking for images of resilience that I anticipate will resonate with life experiences of artists and viewers alike.
