Start Your Art!

Thank you to all of you who've recently promised us art submissions! We're looking forward to receiving them soon.

There's plenty of time at the moment (well, a month!) to get started and draw, paint, doodle, photograph, write, knit or sew your way into Papergirl Cardiff's heart!

Don't forget, all artwork must be analogue - we can't accept any emailed or otherwise digital submissions - so please post or hand in your work to any of the addresses listed here on the blog.

Also, please be sensitive - we don't know who is going to see or receive your work, so nothing alarming or risqué please!

Keep up to date with the latest news by following us on twitter, being our friend and liking us on Facebook - link straight to our accounts by clicking on the icons on this blog.

New Information for Submissions.

In order to keep all pieces to a manageable size for delivery by bike, we have decided that the maximum size is A2. Hope that's not put a spanner in the works for anyone! Furthermore, we'd like to ask people to let us know via e-mail, to, when they have submitted any pieces. This will help us to ensure prompt collection and also prevent any work going missing. When you do submit work, please also ensure your name and a contact e-mail or number is enclosed with it.

We have had some great coverage this last week on The Guardian Cardiff blog and also on BBC Wales Arts blog, so word is obviously spreading. Thanks to everyone for creating a buzz. We're anticipating our first submissions soon!
