CALL FOR ARTIST!
The National Center for Farmworker Health (NCFH) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the health of agricultural workers and their families in the United States and Puerto Rico. Each year, NCFH commissions an artist to depict an image that celebrates and honors the contributions of migratory and seasonal agricultural workers to support the Bobbi Ryder Migrant Health Champion Scholarship Award. Proceeds from the sale of fine art prints and posters are used to award scholarships to individuals with the potential to positively affect agricultural workers. The NCFH Annual Scholarship Award program was established in 1984 and offers approximately six to seven $1000 scholarships to Community Health Center staff of clinical, administrative, and ancillary disciplines to help them with their educational goals.
The Conference for Agricultural Worker Health will be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico in May 2019 where the artwork will be unveiled. We invite you to consider this wonderful opportunity to showcase your work and be a part of a program which helps others to achieve success. If you are interested in being considered as the 2019 artist, please submit the following to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 25, 2019.
The artist chosen must complete the artwork no later than March 1, 2019. A $1000 cash prize will be awarded to the selected artist upon completion of the artwork, as well as 1 fine artist proof and 5 posters of the image. In addition to the creation of the original piece of art, the artist agrees to attend the conference for the unveiling of the artwork, and to participate in poster and print signing. Travel expenses will be paid for by NCFH. Please consider being a part of this great program and have an opportunity to be recognized on a national basis. Click Here to view previous years’ artwork.
