Hello! Here participating artists will be able to choose and claim the event and holiday of their choice.
When choosing your event, the sky is really the limit, whether you'd like to go for something as universal as New Years, or something culturally specific such as the Dragons Boat Festival. As international artists are asked to participate from many different parts of the world, we encourage you to select a holiday specific to your country. I'm sure myself, along many others would love to learn more about other cultures. (You will be able to add a short description to your art piece that will appear in the artbook along with your artwork.)
Keep in mind that there are, of course, a bunch of other 'national' holidays that are a bit more light-hearted that are up for the taking if you choose! Believe it or not, there are holidays such as 'International Cat Day' (August 8th).
For holiday ideas to choose from, check out:
Days of the Year
If nothing piques your interest, perhaps do a quick search online for "International/National ________ Day"; there is a high likelihood that something similar exists.
[ To Claim Your Selection ]
As selections will be exclusive to the artist, it will be based on a first come first serve basis. To claim your selected holiday or event, please send a note to Revel-AB or an email to email@example.com with the titile 'Revel Artbook Holiday Selection'. In your message please include the name of your chosen holiday, along with the date.
All artworks will be placed in chronological order of date in the artbook. In the case of holidays/events with no set day of occurrence, dates will be based on the 2018 calendar, but not all events (those with set dates) will necessarily happen in 2018 (ie. Leap Day).
