An Acquisition & Print Replication Project

Application Deadline: Saturday, August 27, 2016

Maryland Art Place (MAP), in partnership with The CyberWire is pleased to announce an open ‘Call to Artists’. As an extension of MAP’s annual IMPRINT Project, MAP is working with The CyberWire to offer a unique opportunity to female visual artists of the greater Baltimore metropolitan area. Collectively, MAP and The CyberWire wish to acquire and possibly commission, time permitting, plus license the image of a work of art. The image of that artwork will be reproduced in a limited edition and presented to the guests of The CyberWire’s 3rd Annual Women in Cyber Security reception on September 27, 2016.

ABOUT “CREATING CONNECTIONS”: We live in a time where cyberspace has become inextricably linked to the lives of individuals and organizations of all kinds. Cyberspace is the medium of global commerce and communication, and it is one of the most important factors in the social, political, and technological changes we see occurring today. The CyberWire provides concise and relevant daily briefings on the critical news happening across the global cyber security domain. In an industry overloaded with information, we also help individuals and organizations rapidly find the news and information that's important to them.

As the aim of The CyberWire’s reception is to facilitate connections among women working in cyber security, and would like to acquire a work of art that reflects the theme of “creating connections.” Inherent in the idea of connections is the idea of networks—social networks, computer networks and support networks—which may be an important point of departure for acquired or commissioned work. This opportunity is open to female artists living and working in the greater Baltimore metropolitan area.

Benefits to the artist:

  • $1,000 Cash Award
  • Increased visibility of artist’s name and artwork through:
  • Press announcements
  • Highlighted on MAP and The CyberWire’s websites
  • The gifting of artist reproduction to attendees of the Women in Cyber Security reception
  • Acknowledgement at Women in Cyber Security reception on September 27, 2016


  1. Three to ten images for consideration, including a full description of each work including title (if any), dimension and media. Please keep images to 72-150 dpi. *Please include an image list.
