Portland Design Auction 2013

Call to Artists and Designers

Deadline for submissions is August 30, 2013.

Portland Design Auction - or PDA - is a live auction focused on contemporary art and design from makers working both nationally and internationally. Through the end of August they are looking for talented people to submit work to their jury of art and design professionals.

The auction itself will take place on October 10th, 2013 during Design Week Portland- a strategic move to advance PDA’s mission to connect as many makers with as many prospective buyers as possible, and to raise the bar for creative commerce in our local community and beyond. PDA is not a benefit auction - the primary goal is to ensure that artists and designers make a fair wage for their work, and that collectors, and design enthusiasts see the most inspiring pieces on the market. The aim is that participants will be rewarded artistically, socially and financially by doing what they love, and that taking part in this endeavor might jump-start or accelerate the individual’s creative career.

Categories include:
Sculpture and sculptural installations
Graphic design
Creative products
Furniture and home-goods
Architectural installations

Auction submission is open to all working artists and designers and students of art and design, both in the U.S. and internationally. We ask that submissions are original, contemporary pieces that are a testament to the dedication you have to your craft. Work must be submitted to by 8/30/2013 for consideration.
