Artwork Distribution: A minimum of 30,000 posters and nine large-scale banners will be produced from this public call. Posters and banners will be made available free of charge to participants in the march in Washington, DC. Distribution points will be set up around the city with this free artwork, information to follow in early January.

Submission Details: Artists should submit artwork that can be used as a hand-held banner and/or poster, see dimension details below. All artwork should be inspired by the mission and values detailed by the WMW manifesto attached.

Who Can Apply: This submission process is open to all female-identifying artists located within the United States. Please note that you do not need to be a United States citizen to apply. The panel administering the selection process is committed to ensuring that the artwork reflects women and femme expressive people of all backgrounds.
