Call for Entries

Submissions now open through September 25!


Submissions are open to Cedo’s former and current students. No submission fee is required.

You may submit up to two entries, one entry per category:

All submissions will be considered for display at the MSU Student Exhibition Center. We hope to include as many entries as possible, but we may jury the exhibition if space becomes an issue. Submissions will also be included in the printed catalogue and online gallery.


Select a theme represented in Cedo’s posters and create a response to his work. We encourage you to respond to Cedo’s work through the medium of your choice including—but not limited to—print, film, photography, sound, digitally focused work and installations. What's crucial is that the work be in conversation with Cedo’s pieces, to display the dialogue, influence and inspiration that spans time and generations.


The Cedo25+ Exhibition is also open to submissions of personal/client work created after graduation including—but not limited to—print, film, illustration and photography. No student projects (undergrad or graduate). We highly encourage you to create new work, but we are happy to have you participate in whatever capacity works for you.

Any piece that requires special equipment or installation must be proposed by Tuesday, September 5, 2017. See Artwork Specs: Interactive / Other for more information.
