There's an impressive variety of exhibition opportunities on the site this week, from oil paint to miniature size, so if you're looking for the right place to showcase your work it's worth checking the detail of our list online.

There's no time like the present, and the seven day deadline section always generates an inspiring mix. I notice there's still time to apply for the Warwick Stafford Research Fellowship in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, to send your work into the Beers.Lambert emerging artist prize, or maybe to apply for an artist's studio residency at Lewisham Art House

For artists working with the moving image, the Lux Associate Artist programme offers an intensive course of monthly critical seminars designed to develop, challenge and support. With mentors, facilitators and guest speakers of the highest level, this is a wonderful opportunity to extend your practice through a period of intensive critical engagement. Beginning in November, the programme is free to participants and it's well worth taking a look at the detail from our link.

In Manchester, the NOISE festival is looking for a Marketing and Communications Manager, in Derby QUAD have an interesting role for an Education Curator to lead on the development and delivery of their art and film education programme, and MK Gallery in Milton Keynes are looking for a content curator to engage and develop new audiences for their impressive programme.

See our full list of opportunities.

As always, good luck with all your plans and submissions.

Call out for Photographers/ Artists/Volunteers Enjoy photographing people/ actions/live performances/happenings ?! Want to be part of actions/live performances/ art happenings? I’d like your help! Location : Roath Park, Cardiff Dates: Sunday 14th October (Half Marathon Performance), Saturday 20th October, Sunday 21st October 2012 (Made In Roath Festival). Overview of activities: Half Marathon Happening- Photographers needed A performance stemming from workshops taken by myself with local high schools, working with a group of students to create a sound performance, for runners and spectators on the morning of the Cardiff Half Marathon between miles 9 and 12 (location yet to be confirmed). Think megaphones. Think vocal experimentation. Think action. Think motivation. Think choreographed chaos! Made In Roath Festival- Photographers and Volunteers needed I am creating a series of fabric ‘sculptures’ which I will be encouraging people to use, wear, perform and interact with through movement. The piece stems from my interest in the relationship we have with a place and the magnetism between one person and another; How we are aware of ourselves in that space; Aware of the impact our actions can make and in the commonality we have as human beings, but also in being asked to complete the exact same task, how we all do it that bit differently. These fabric pieces are simple catalysts to join people together, strangers or acquaintances and learn more about themselves physically through movement and action, and inwardly through spoken word and gesture. I am hoping to get a group of dancers and even actors on board to see to see how they respond to the works and to encourage a more experimental happening.
