Entry Deadline: March 18, 2009
Exhibition dates: June 19 – July 23, 2009
Woman Made Gallery, Chicago
Long before “interactive” meant sitting in front of a computer, artists were making books, toys, games, installations and other work that invited participation from the viewer. For this exhibition Woman Made Gallery is seeking work that the viewer will handle, play with, modify, or physically interact with in some way.
Open to artwork in all media, except electronics, by women artists from the international community. (Computers may only be used as a tool in producing the physical work.)
Juror: Karen Hanmer

Society of Bookbinders International Competition 2009
(unabashedly cribbed--though not verbatim--from the GBW California Chapter newsletter:)
Following the success of the 2007 Society of Bookbinders International Competition, entries are invited for the next competition, which will coincide with the Society's Conference at Warwick University during August 2009.
We have made some changes to the competition this year. There is no longer a registration fee, which we know caused many people without sterling bank accounts a problem.
Anyone can enter--members or non-members, whether in the UK or overseas. Categories include fine binding, restored/conserved/period binding, complete book, and cased binding.
Registration deadline: May 15, 2009
Entries must be received by June 1, 2009.
Competition Organizer: Stuart Brockman
