The deadline for Explore This! 10 is getting closer and closer, if you haven’t done so already, now is the time to finish up your artwork and get it entered.

This juried competition is all about combining a love of colored pencils with a love for other media. ET! 10 is our opportunity to showcase your skills in manipulating and balancing multiple mediums to create something exciting and unique.

All submissions must be predominantly colored pencil and must also be used with at least one other medium or element not allowed in the CPSA International Exhibition. Two and three dimensional works are welcome. Now is the time to show us something new and interesting!

All CPSA members who are juried into Explore This! 10 will be on their way to achieving their CPX signature status. To gain this honor, one must be accepted and appear in the ET! competition three times in a ten year period.

The top three winners are also invited to exhibit their winning artworks in the 22nd Annual CPSA International in 2014. All selected entries will be shown in a future issue of To the Point, the CPSA news magazine.

Submissions close November 15th—it’s coming up quickly!
