Your submission should combine a product box with a handpainted etegami image in the simplest way possible. If there are sensible words already on the box, you don't need to add your own. But if you can add your own words without turning the etegami-collage into a big mess, please do.
Here are the requirements of the call:
1. Your submission to this call should be a physical etegami, not digital. For this call, it should be sent in an envelope through the postal service to the following address:
dosankodebbie's mailart gallery
Hiragishi 2-11-1-22, Toyohira-ku,
Sapporo, 062-0932, JAPAN
2. The submissions should be approximately 15 cm x 10 cm (6 inches x 4 inches) in size.
3. The deadline for sending submissions to this call is October 31, 2014.
4. DON'T FORGET THAT THERE MUST BE AN ETEGAMI ELEMENT= A HAND-PAINTED IMAGE SOMEWHERE ON THE COLLAGE, AND PREFERABLE SOME HAND-WRITTEN WORDS, ALTHOUGH THE WORDS THAT ARE ALREADY PRINTED ON THE CARD MAY BE CONSIDERED SUFFICIENT.
Update: As the submissions come in, I will post them on a new blog I set up just for this challenge. Later in the year, or early next year, I hope to find a more public, real-life venue to display them. Please click this link to see the growing collection of box-card etegami-collages. They are a lot of fun, and everyone has been so creative!
