Whether creator or curator, there's a good mix of opportunities for artists again this week. We've included courses, commissions, competitions and exhibitions, and all our readers can search by category, deadline, or scroll through the full list, free of charge, by clicking here.

The new Wells Art Contemporary prize is offering exhibitions in London and Wells, cash awards and plenty of prestige with their connection to 45 Park Lane which has an impressive roster of art displayed in every public space and private suite of their contemporary Mayfair hotel. There's still plenty of time to submit work to the Salon Art Prize run by Matt Roberts who is steadily developing a regular audience for his East London gallery. And Beers Lambert are celebrating their move to Old Street with a new prize devised to support artists who can submit according to categories which will be judged independently rather than being in competition between disciplines.

On the jobs front, both Ikon and Arnolfini are looking for curators, Tate Britain is looking for an Art Handling Technician and there are plenty of jobs in the education sector for specialists in several areas of the visual arts.

If you need a professional online portfolio to supplement your website, in a format which provides a showcase for up to 12 artworks plus plenty of space to introduce your practice and something of the research and personality behind your work, the isendyouthis portfolios are designed in formats which you can easily update for each opportunity. At just £2.95/month, it gives you the chance to promote your work, upload your CV, and connect to other showcases of your work whether in galleries or online collections. Keeping your information regularly updated helps to connect with your collectors, old and new, as well as potential employers.

Good luck this week, Craig / @isendyouthis

Criteria: An open call to participate in a residency exploring processes of language and communication??. Each year, the participants of the LUX Associate Artists Programme run a group project. This year Fawzia Afifi, Ed Atkins, David Ferrando Giraut, Conal McStravick, Lucy Pawlak, Naheed Raza, Corin Sworn and Patrick Staff are devising a weeklong residency to collectively enquire into reflexive processes of language and communication. By living and working together for a period of time with invited participants, the residency will utilise a number of experiments, strategies, workshops and games to negotiate a range of enquiries, including (but not restricted to): group dynamics; improvisation; communication strategies; interpretation; broadcast and interruption. Through these methods, we hope to?make disappear conventional divisions between production and presentation with an aim to co-operatively examine a shared pool – coalescing our discontinuity into a chorus.??The open call is aimed at those for whom this outline resonates and who feel that they would like to attend the residency. Please include a description of your work (approx. 300 words), your interest in the residency (approx. 300 words) and examples of previous projects if relevant.
