MFA Annual Deadline Extended!


We are currently accepting submissions for what has become our most anticipated publication of the year. The MFA Annual will feature painters that are currently studying to receive a Master of Fine Arts or recent MFA graduates. Even more exciting, we have an amazing juror for this year's competition. New American Paintings is thrilled to have Alma Ruiz, Senior Curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, ready to review submissions and select the best and most promising artists to watch.

If you have received your MFA in 2011 or you are a current candidate, you are eligible to enter! The extended deadline is November 7th, 2011 (Midnight EST). So apply online now! Or, visit competition page and follow the instructions. Submitting is easy! Just have four jpegs, less than 1200 pixels at their greatest dimension, and a credit card for the entry fee.

You may download a PDF of our postcard announcement here (ignore the original deadline). Good luck!
