Artistic Piece Guidelines

  • All submissions must be original and may include drawings, paintings, collages, photographs, or mixed media.

  • File format should be high-definition JPG or PDF image, at least 8” tall. The cover image is 9.5" x 6.5".

  • Please upload submissions through Submissions Manager. We do not accept email submissions or hard copies via mail.

  • Upload only one piece per submission file; to submit more than one piece, make more than one submission file.

  • There is no fee to submit.


  • We will not be able to respond to each submission. If your piece is accepted for publication, we will notify you at the close of our submission cycle.
