Artist Submission Guidelines

We greatly appreciate your participation to support the GLAAD Art Auction & Benefit. To maximize the value of your donation to the auction, please consider the following guidelines.

The artist outreach committee and our curator committee seeks to identify and promote a wide variety of individual expressions and subject matter, and is not limited to LGBT content. The main criteria of GLAAD’s curatorial selection process are creativity, originality and quality.

Submissions are at the discretion of the artist, GLAAD invites artists and donors to consider submitting artwork of various themes. We encourage you to send up to three different bodies of artwork, to ensure one or more may be showcased on 11/18/13.

Artist will be notified beginning November 1st, if selected.

PLEASE NOTE: Donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.

  • GLAAD doesn’t encourage the use of reserves but will honor them.
  • GLAAD reserves the right due to merits of each individual piece, to increase its listed value.
