Call to Artists - 2021-22 Season Artwork





Submissions requested by May 10th, 2021

Cleveland-based Les Délices (in English, The Delights) fosters, educates, and expands audiences for live chamber music on period instruments.

Les Délices seeks proposals from Northeast Ohio artists to create a unified visual language for our 2021-2022 season through a series of original images including five (5) concert-specific concepts and one (1) overarching image for the season. 

These images can be produced digitally or in any 2-dimensional medium suitable for high-res digital reproduction. The images will be used on both printed and online marketing materials to promote our work. These could include postcards, brochures, CD covers, social media, print and digital paid advertising, etc. The images may also be used as part of digital content we create from our performances and concert lectures throughout the season.

Images should be linked stylistically to create a unified theme for the project.  Selected artist will be provided with detailed information about our programs to inform the imagery.

LD will pay $1,800 for the six (6) requested artworks. $500 will be paid upon engagement of the artist, and $1,300 upon receipt of the final images. This fee covers the print and digital use of the six images in the manner described above for the period of one year, as well as the provision of one physical example for Les Délices to keep or auction, per our discretion. 


Les Délices will retain exclusive rights to the physical and digital images to be used in the manner described above for the period of one year. Credit will be given to the artist wherever possible and appropriate.

Ownership of the artwork will revert to the Artist on July 1, 2022. The Artist may include images in personal portfolios but may not give or sell the same images to any other individual or entity until this date.


Please submit between four (4) and six (6) examples of previous work that indicate the style in which you would create the images for LD.  Images must be submitted digitally via this google form (  

If original work was not created digitally, please submit via scan or high-quality photo and indicate the medium used.

All submissions must be received by May 10th, 2021.  LD hopes to engage an artist by May 21st, 2021 and receive final artwork by June 14th, 2021, whether physical or digital. This tight schedule is in order to announce our next season and open ticket sales on July 1st with imagery in place. If your schedule or process will not allow this fast of a turn-around, please indicate that on your submission form.
