The event will also officially announce the opening of submissions, where artists and designers can submit their proposal for inclusion in the project. Those artists selected will work closely with Blurb and Jotta to create original works for exhibition in London in September. The Imprimatur exhibition will then tour throughout Europe and North America. Successful applicants will receive an artist fee of $1,000 to participate, in addition to production costs, documentation and publicity around the exhibition.
