To be considered for the exhibit, online submissions must be entered by September 15th. Quilt submissions must be received by August 15th.
Online entrants can contribute poetry, prose, video or a digital photo of artwork with a paragraph describing the artwork and how it represents the entrant's personal pain experience. Entries can be submitted online at http://www.healthcentral.com/chronic-pain/c/create/apf.
Submissions for the Pain Quilt, a reflection of the quilt-block maker's journey with pain, should be original 10" by 10" block or blocks that are made of fabric, or with a foundation of fabric.
Other media (beads, fibers, feathers, etc.) may be used for embellishment. The blocks may be pieced or appliqued, by hand or machine. They may be traditional or of original design. Blocks must be unfinished and unquilted; entrants are asked to leave at least 1/4" on all sides of the square for the seams that will join the squares together.
Send quilt blocks directly to the American Pain Foundation, 201 N. Charles Street, Suite 710, Baltimore, MD 21201-4111. The blocks will not be returned to the maker, and will become the property of APF. The finished quilts will be exhibited at the APF's annual celebration and awards dinner and will be used for fundraising purposes.
