Call for Artists – Cerulean Blu

Call for Artists


Calling all local St. Petersburg, Florida artists!  Cerulean Blu is seeking submissions for its latest project to feature LOCAL artwork on mugs.  We will make, market and sell the mugs right here in our St. Pete location.  Our goal with this project is to create an economically viable platform for our St. Pete artists to share their flavor with the world, all while keeping the moving parts of manufacturing, marketing and sales right here in St. Pete.

Yes, this is a PAYING gig!  At Cerulean Blu, we strongly believe in paying the artist.  Selected submissions will be paid a licensing fee up front AND a royalty based on per unit sales.  Artists may submit multiple designs and we may select several from the same artist - resulting in payment of licensing fees and royalties on several products.  Email clientservices@ceruleanblu.com for more detailed information and a copy of the Licensing and Royalty Agreement.

What kind of designs do we want?  We want designs that fall into three categories: (1) local themes (Sunshine City, St. Pete, The Burg, etc); (2) your artistic aesthetic, taking into account current trends in home furnishings, colors, etc; and (3) resort/ocean themed designs.

Eligibility: Artists must be residents of St. Petersburg, Florida in  order to be eligible for consideration.  Artists must also  grant Cerulean Blu an exclusive license to reproduce and use the selected design on products sold on the internet and within 10 miles of our Flagship store.  More details can be provided upon selection.

How to Enter: All submissions must include the design in vector  format in (1) black and white; and (2) full color on a 9in x 4in printable area.  Please send submissions including your name, address and phone number to Art at clientservices@ceruleanblu.com, subject line "Mug Design Submission."

Deadline: Ongoing.  We will accept submissions on an ongoing basis.
