Hi folks. This week we launched a new Artist Invite experience and Ello artist monograph, Underscore. Plus we have this week’s giveaways, other open Artist invites and a few bug fixes.
New Artist Invite Experience
We designed a slick new way for you to explore our Artist Invites. Now it’s easier for you to submit work (no more tagging and hashtagging) and it showcases the killer work that’s been shared in the past.
Go see our current Artist Invites, scope out the past winners, and check back often to see the new opportunities we’re lining up for you.
Ongoing Artist Invites
Submit your work, get published, and earn $$$. Check out our current Artist Invites, including…
Your work. Your book.
After two issues of Not For Print, our thematic quarterly magazine, we want to go deeper. It can be hard picking just a few pieces to feature in the magazine from each artist, so we said “fuck it, let's just make an entire book about a single artist.” The only downside: we would only get to feature one artist. To address this, we are selecting an additional 9 artists who will be interviewed and have their work featured in an accompanying zine. Best of both worlds.
The selected artist published in the monograph will receive a $1,000 artist grant. Each of the 9 artists selected for the accompanying zine will receive $250 artist grants.
Meet Underscore, our new premium, perfect bound quarterly monograph.
Show us your work, we want to make a book about you.
Learn how to submit here.
