2024 SAQA Benefit Auction - Call for Submissions

Call for Submissions
Call for Entry Deadline

Be part of SAQA’s most-anticipated fund-raising event! Donate a 12 x 12-inch art quilt to support our exhibition and outreach programs. This year's auction will take place online from September 13 through October 6, 2024.

  • Donations MUST be 12” x 12”. All embellishments and/or hanging methods must be within the 12” x 12” size. Only ONE work per artist will be accepted. 
  • All artwork donated must be ready to hang. This can include a sleeve, corner pockets, or attached loops/rings.
  • Artwork on stretcher bars will be accepted but may not be any larger than 12” x 12” after mounting and should be no deeper than 1 inch (2.5 cm) after mounting. Artwork on stretchers must have hooks and wire attached for hanging.
  • All donations must have a label on the back, with the title (or "untitled") and artist's name clearly written.


Since the auction will take place online, the quality of your image is very important! We may not be able to re-photograph your piece. 

When you complete your submission form, you will need to upload a digital image (jpg format) of your quilt. This image should be good quality: evenly lit, in focus, no smaller than the preferred size of 1200 x 1200 pixels.

Please take the picture on a contrasting color to your edges (pure white works best but use black or dark grey for lighter pieces). A large piece of posterboard makes the perfect background (unlike wood floors, carpet and tables). This will ensure your image looks its best when displayed on the website.

Questions? Please email us at auction@saqa.com.
