    1. This association has never fully recognized the outdoor contributions of artists. Painters, illustrators, cartoonists have usually been lumped into categories with photographers. Some have tried to hang on … but why?
      Ding Darling would have quit. But who, today, remembers Ding Darling.

        Thanks for your input, Cliff. I’m not sure if you’ve taken a look at the new EIC rules (there’s still time to enter!), but there is a new Fine Arts contest that, aside from photography, allows submissions of “painting and other visual forms meant for display in galleries and other similar venues. Entries might [e.g. cartoons, illustrations] or might not have been published. This contest is limited only by the member’s creativity.” For more details about the 2011 EIC contests, visit The final deadline for submissions is Feb. 1, 2011. Please contact OWAA HQs ( if you have other ideas of how we can increase recognition of the outdoor contributions of artists.
