Thank you for submitting artwork for the 2012 AGC Desk Calendar, 52 Weeks 52 Works.
It was a very impressive collection of artwork to select from. As with most years, we received many more submissions then space allowed. While we initially select the 52 artists to display within the calendar year, we then select between 10-15 artists to display in the Notes section.
Those of you who were chosen for display within the 2012 calendar will be receiving 2 copies of the desk calendar this week (based on emails I have received I know some of you have already received yours.) Those of you who were not selected will be receiving 1 copy of the calendar this week or next week (depending on mail delivery).
Every effort was made to ensure accuracy of the information you supplied, but inevitably errors occur. We do apologize in advance for any misrepresentations.
Regarding additional calendars, we do not sell the calendars. Since the publication is used as a marketing tool for our company we are not comfortable selling them. The intent is not to earn money or recoup costs, but rather to demonstrate the power of printing and the multitude of creative forces in our community, and we sincerely thank each and every one of you for assisting us with this goal.
As many of you know we distribute this calendar to approx. 2500 local business executives. Upon completion of distribution we generally have 100 – 200 extra calendars. It is our attempt to use these as a sales tool throughout the year, but also to assist you, the artists, in sharing this piece with family and friends. Therefore, I ask if any of you are interested in additional copies please inquire in mid-January. At this point distribution will be complete and we can attempt to accommodate your requests.
The calendar will be posted to our web site in the next couple days along with the 2013 submission form.
If you have any questions please let me know.
Again, my sincere thanks to all of you for making this a truly beautiful representation of Cleveland's talented creative force.
Wishing you a prosperous new year!
