Question: What should I do to get featured in your mag?
Due to such a large volume of submissions we have decided to temporally close submissions for artists.
We are currently very backed up with submissions from artists and designers for the magazine. We have thousands of entries that we sort through to try and select a handful of artists for each magazine. Unfortunately we just can’t print as many designers as we would like to, which is why we have set up our members platform.
By joining our members platform we can feature your work, and you can enter some of our awesome competitions! All our competitions will be vote based, so everyone will get to see your entry and vote for you to be in our shortlist. We also have plans to do some themed special editions, but this is once we get enough members - these will also be vote based competitions!
The small membership fee funds the running of the competitions. Eligible for membership and entries for competitions are designers, artists, photographers, typographers, illustrators, and anywhere in between… Pretty much anyone who makes images or lettering of some sort! All levels of experience are eligible as well, whether you do it as a hobby, or you are a student, a collective or studio, or a design genius - All are welcome :)
There are also prizes for our competitions! And the bigger the competitions get, the bigger the prizes will be!

Hope you’ve had a great week!
We have a whole list of updates for you!
Firstly, apologies if you have been receiving duplicates of our messages on behance. We have been having a few problems sending messages on behance and are working on improving this problem.
Secondly, it has been brought to our attention that some people have been having problems with accessing our website from our links. We have checked the usability of website on many browsers and haven’t come across this problem ourselves. We think it could possibly be down to settings on firewalls stopping people from accessing the site, but technology can be a funny thing.
