:: GUIDELINES FOR MANDALA SUBMISSIONS ::

The vision of Moon Mandala Wall Calendar is to share our lunar connection to uplift one another and deepen our collective relationship with cycles and creativity.

The 2020 Wall Calendar will feature the work of twelve makers, seekers, teachers, healers, life-long learners, moon mamas, wise elders, and creative lunar beings ... all who love creating mandalas with the moon. You do not need to call yourself an artist to participate.

Please send Mandala submissions to april@themoonismycalendar.com and sign the release form: HERE.

About

This project began with a desire to collectively share the healing practice of creating moon mandalas.

Creativity is an expression of agency, presence, pain, joy, transformation. Art is a visual depiction of a moment in your unfolding journey.

This project expands the perception of what creativity looks like and feels like, to inspire us to let go of expectations of perfection and share what is real.

As Dr. Estes says, "Nurturing what is yet to become, creating something out of nothing ... Creative life is a spiritual practice." 

We are looking for New Moon Mandala submissions that are:

  • raw, real, and perhaps rough around the edges

  • expressive

  • from the heart

  • preferably created in the New Moon Calendar Journal

  • simple or intricate

  • a diverse range of media and style

  • collage, drawing, multimedia ...

  • images and/or words

  • transformational and evocative

  • a sensory experience

  • your unique expression

 

IMAGE SPECIFICS

Please send 1-3 images of your mandala to april@themoonismycalendar.com.

Scan or photograph the images from above so that the image is flat. Please frame the mandala so that no part is cut off. It is preferred that the file be sent as a jpeg and is at least 4MB in size so that it is as high resolution as possible. If this is not possible, send me what you have and we will see if we can work with it.

Chosen mandalas will be paired with the season and astrological sign of the new moon that is most reflected in the image.

SUBMISSIONS DUE: FRIDAY JUNE 7TH, 2019
