We are looking for 2 members of the Society of Scottish Artists to be part the General Submissions Selecting Committee for OPEN: SSA + VAS.

What’s involved?
Part of a committee responsible for selecting artworks for the exhibition, you will view and vote on artworks submitted digitally to General Submissions.

After submissions deadline has passed, you will be given access to the online voting system where you must look at each submission and cast your vote. This is done online in your own time before Thursday 17 October 2019.

Previous exhibitions have attracted around 1500 General Submissions, this year we anticipate even more. Please be aware that looking at submissions does take time and you are required to view and vote on every work.

You will be required to attend a full-day meeting in Edinburgh on Saturday 19 October 2019 to make the final pre-selections. You must be available on this date. You will also be required to make final selections at the RSA on Monday 16 December 2019 (TBC)

All artists who have submitted artworks will then be informed whether their work has been pre-selected.

What are we looking for?
All members are welcome to apply. We are interested to hear from Society members who have not previously taken part in exhibition selection committees. We are also keen to receive applications from artists working in a range of disciplines and from those who live outwith Edinburgh. (Travel expenses can be covered up to a limit).

How to apply.
You can nominate yourself to be part of the Selection Committee.
Deadline: Sunday 15 September, midnight.

The Professional Members of the SSA Council will consider applications and select 2 members to join the selection Selection Committee.

Please complete the form below.

We look forward to receiving your nomination.
