Q.&A. Session.

Question: Why should artists care about commerical magazines?

Answer:

  • Commerical magazines are a great way to get wider exposure for your work. They area signal of popular reception, relevance and achievement. 
  • As such, every artist should have a list of magazines they want to see their work featured in over the course of their career and apply regularly and often! 
  • Keeping an eye on open callls for work and rolling dealines is key, especially during months where the theme or content applies directly to the kind of work you make. There is no point in submitting if the call for work has absolutely nothing to do with the kind of work you make. 
  • When a opportunity to submit your work does come up that is a good fit for your art practice, don't miss it! The same theme may not return again for years, so it's crucial to apply at the right time every single thime there is a real opportunity to get accepted.
