Time for the 25th battle. We enjoyed hosting the open battle last week, with 11 different contributors. You can still vote –> go here.
This week is the week of Y. (In case you wonder, we already battled on X, the week before last week, in public, at the Sörmex Showroom.) Will you still follow us, and vote for the submission that you like the best? We hope the answer will be YES.
Yes is the word of this week. The submissions of Magdalena (Grafi) and Daniel (Dawnland), will be posted tomorrow at 9 PM. And you can send us an e-mail if you like to be informed of when we host our next Open Battle, probably in Spring 2014. Will you? Yes?
The Letraspace Open Battle 2013 and all our other battles on this website will be open for voting until December 31, 23:59. You will find all the open battle submissions at this link: Open Battle 2013. We sure have a leader … But nothing is set in stone.
… and they change places all the time, especially a bit down in the list, so keep voting!
Later today, we are preparing for the battle of Y. The battle word will be published tonight and the two submissions tomorrow, at 21 PM. I’m also planning on making feature posts on some of our open battle contestants, in the coming weeks – because we aim to inspire in lettering and calligraphy, and who are better to inspire than you, magnificent people. I even got hold on some extra submissions for our word ‘Words’, but it felt wrong to throw these into the contest at such a late stage, so there might be another feature post, if the artists agree.
And – if you like prints and textiles, check back here, within a week. We will have a pop-up exhibition in Galleri Gagfi, Nyköping, Sweden, starting Saturday December 7, and for two weeks. There will be lots of pictures up, and some new items in our shop.
Every minute from 20:50 tonight a new piece of artwork will be published here on this site. At about 9 PM, all submissions will be visible. We host an open battle with both professional and amateur lettering artists and calligraphers. Voting will be on until December 31, at 23;59.
The open battle word with the most votes in 2013 will be printed. Nine copies will be sent to and fully owned by the artist. The tenth copy will be up for sale through Letraspace (with the sum split 50/50 between the artist and Letraspace). The artists keep their own copyright for all submissions.
You may vote for more than one word, if you like, but the voting is set so that everyone can vote only once for every word per IP address. If you are sharing internet connection or wifi in your house or workspace, we recommend voting by your mobile phone internet connection.
