2023 Spotlight Auction (Call for Submissions)

Call for Submissions
Call for Entry Deadline

The Spotlight Auction will be an online event taking place during the 2023 SAQA Conference Pathways to Possibilities. This is an opportunity for all SAQA members to have their work showcased to a world-wide audience. All proceeds will help support SAQA programs.

You do NOT have to attend the conference to participate - bidding will be open to everyone via the Handbid platform. Pieces will be available for in-person display at the Saturday conference banquet.

We are looking for pieces 6” x 8” (portrait or landscape orientation), which we will display in mats with a 4.5" x 6.5” opening and place in clear cellophane sleeves (see sample). The edges of the piece (.75" all around) will be hidden from view in the final presentation. Raw, straight-stitched, or zigzag edges are best.

This size of artwork can be quick to make, showcasing your voice and raising funds for the organization which helps us all. Plus, it’s your opportunity to collect work made by fellow SAQA members. What a win-win!


February 20: Deadline to complete submission form. Do NOT send your piece without completing the form!
March 1: Final Deadline for artwork to arrive at the designated shipping locations
