Adam Santelli, The Billboard Creative founder asked me to share this opportunity with my readers to submit their art along with this special promo code (arm15) for artists to use for a free second submission to the project call.
The Billboard Creative is a non-profit arts organization that raises money through donations and a small submission fee. Adam Santelli says, “We feel that by having a submission fee it frees us in our choices of artwork. We keep the fee as low as possible and all the money raised through artist submissions goes to getting the art work on billboards. We are an all volunteer organization. Our last show – with the help of the accepted artists – we did a silent auction to raise money for kids living with cancer. That’s TBC in a nutshell. We look for like-minded organizations to help us get the word out. SF Camera Works just sent out a flyer to their members on our behalf. We issued them a special coupon code to their members for a free second submission. We would like to offer more but our fees are so low and our cost is so high we really can’t do much more.”

“I was introduced to The Billboard Creative during the April show and was enthralled,” said Kuhn. “With the role of public art more critical to our society than ever, I love the idea of exploring the billboard as more media for fine art. Los Angeles has a long history of artistic interaction with the billboard form going back to the 60s with Ed Ruscha. We can build on that history to make significant works of art more regular fixtures on the streets of our city. What a canvas; what a setting.”
SELECTED WORKS WILL BE SHOWN ON 37 BILLBOARDS THROUGHOUT LOS ANGELES in the HOLLYWOOD area, with 3/4 of the billboard art by emerging artists and 1/4 by established artists.
Eligibility: All welcome
Entry Deadline: 10/16/15
Submit at: thebillboardcreative.org
Submissions welcome from all disciplines – if you can put it in an image file, we can put it on a billboard. The Billboard Creative is a nonprofit that produces public art shows on billboards throughout Los Angeles. Imagine the impact of your art viewed, on a massive scale, by tens of thousands of Angelenos on their daily commutes. Check out the website for more details, past work, to submit work here.
The young non-profit, The Billboard Creative, transforms billboards into works of art and daily commutes turn into art hops. – After its successful inaugural show in April that brought 15 works of art by artists from seven countries to the billboards across Los Angeles. The Billboard Creative hopes to double the number of works on display in its second show.
The Billboard Creative was founded in 2014 with the goals of giving artists access to a mass audience and making art as assessable to Angelenos as the numerous billboards they view every day. “There is so much happening in museums and galleries in Los Angeles right now, and we want to be a part of bringing that into the streets and into the path of tens of thousands of people’s everyday routines,” said Adam Santelli, TBC founder. “We’re an outdoor city, a car culture, a great city for art, and if you think about it, billboards are really a quintessential A medium. Our hope is to bring these things together more often.” The submission deadline is October 15.
