About the INDA 11

For the INDA 11 Manifest received 1907 submissions from 593 artists from all across the U.S. and the world. The publication will include 120 works by 81 artists.

Eleven professional and academic advisors qualified in the fields of art, design, and art history juried this 11th International Drawing Annual. The process of selection was by anonymous blind jury, with each jury member assigning a quality rating for artistic merit to each work submitted. The entries receiving the highest average combined score will be included in this publication.

The International Drawing Annual publication was conceived as an extension of Manifest’s Drawing Centre mission to promote, feature and explore drawing as a rich and culturally significant art form.

The goal of the INDA is to support the recognition, documentation and publication of excellent, current, and relevant works of drawing from around the world.
