2016 is a long way away, but it is certainly not too soon for the annual calendar industry. Thousands of companies worldwide have long since began snapping up their fix of tedious pictures of domestic pets in every variety of human clothing imaginable, ready for you to hang for yet another year.

Each year Hahnemuhle offers a creative new theme for their calendar, and invites all artists of all mediums to take up the challenge and enter their work in a competition to get their art into their annual.

Why not explore their chosen theme of 'Nature in the City'; Whether it’s the contemporary urban garden, or the typical local park area, living walls or enchanting backyard: nature makes every city come alive, resulting in calming harmony or exciting contrasts. Contribute to the creation of the Hahnemühle art calendar 2016 with your individual view of the living city. Any drawing and painting technique is welcome.'

With the theme now set and entries open until June, why not take up Hahnemuhle's challenge for a chance to add something a little more original to an industry that lacks style, and imagination. The only requirement: Your image must be created on a paper by Hahnemuhle or Lana.
