Not that this movie needs any more promotion, but I enjoyed John Coulter's Wild Things take on a classic candy ad. Some inspiration for the Confection call for submissions...
Now accepting submissions for our winter edition!
Sweets, spogs, candy, joy joy, goodies, toffees, chud, lollies— sugar laden confections go by as many names as they come in cavity-inducing shapes and sizes. Even if our teeth are past their sugar prime, the dazzling appeal of a fully stocked old time candy shop never wears off. Just imagine shelves of pastel rockets, misty mints, candy lipstick, pez, wig wag bars, Wrigley’s spearmint gum...
Even in childhood, the clever designs, pretty packaging, zany wrappers, colourful names and elegant detailing held as much appeal as the tasty treats tucked inside. The Confections show celebrates the fine art of candy packaging. We invite artists to illustrate and design their own wrappers in a timeless cele-bration of sweet tooths the world over. Come up with an irresistible cover for a novel treat or create a new design for an old favourite. Send us your eye candy!
The best designs will be featured in the winter issue of the magazine. Submit your artwork file via email info–at–uppercasegallery.ca (images should be at least 6 to 8 inches wide at 300dpi).
Deadline: November 10, 2009
Submissions may become part of a gallery exhibition at a later date. You will be notified if your submission is selected.
