Deadline Extended: 2017 IOD Calendar Artwork Submissions

June 23, 2016

2016 IOD Calendar Cover


The Deadline to Submit Artwork for the 2017 IOD Calendar has been extended to Friday, July 8, 2016!

In order to give more people an opportunity to participate in the IOD Calendar, we have decided to extend the deadline.

This year the IOD calendar will center around the theme of “Community,” and for the first time will feature both original two-dimensional artwork and original photography.

We've also simplified the submission process:

  •     All artwork must be two-dimensional (i.e. drawings, paintings, or photography). Artwork may be created for the purpose of this calendar or may be selected from an existing portfolio of work that reflects the theme of "community".
  •     Each artist is welcome to submit a maximum of three (3) works of art for consideration. Submissions can be sent via email as a JPG or PDF to or printed copies (please do not send originals) by mail to: Institute on Disability/UCED,10 West Edge Drive, Suite 101, Durham, NH 03824, Attn: Communications & Marketing
  •     Submissions must include the artist's name, city, state, country, phone number, and email. If selected, artists will receive 5 free copies of the calendar and will be asked to complete an Artwork Release Form. Unfortunately we are not able to feature any artwork without a completed release form, so please make sure you are willing and able to comply with the terms prior to submission.
  •     The submission deadline is Friday, July 8, 2016.

Selected artists will be contacted no later than Friday, July 29, 2016. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us via email at or by calling (603) 862–4320.

Good luck and we look forward to your submission!
