This week we’re closing out a handful of Artist Invites, queueing up some fresh opportunities, and continuing our work to provide recognition and compensation to artists. Are we leaving anything out of these product updates? Let us know in a comment below.
Selections In Progress
The Ello curatorial team and our various partners are currently reviewing the submissions for a handful of Artist Invites that recently concluded, including Mauudhi, WeTransfer x Ello – Flow, Posture Mag, and Ello Celebrates Diversity. We’ll announce the selected artists as they are finalized. Stay tuned!
Submit To Our Ongoing Artist Invites
Submit your work, get published, and earn $$$. Check out our current Artist Invites, including…
Your work. Your book.
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.
We just launched a new help section, lovingly referred to as WTF. Not only is there a new look and feel, but we also updated the content to better communicate what Ello is all about and better assist you in finding what you need.
Check it out and let us know what you think.

Meet Wade Jeffree (@wadejeffree): designer, art director, and Australian. He recently collaborated with Matt and Tim of Sons & Co (@timkelleher) on a new "personal" website. The result is innovative, wry, and features killer design.
Ello CMO Mark Gelband (@markgelband) had a discussion with the group to hear about their ideas behind the project, their process and why it features pictures of Wade eating bananas.
