Submissions to Issue 18 due August 31st!
There are just two days left to submit images for consideration for the October issue. As always, we are looking for handmade photographs, printmaking and collage. We also accept digital work, and people sometimes ask how this can be reconciled with The Hand’s DIY mentality. The answer is that we consider the subject as well. Many artists are manipulating their subject matter by hand, using tableau, still life, narrative, and directorial techniques to arrive at a hand-made subject. We like to keep an open mind! Having said that, we are still particularly interested in hand made prints – silver gelatin, any of the antiquarian and alternative processes, and of course all types of printmaking and collage.
The October issue already includes a fantastic feature with a special guest contributor that we are very excited about. We like surprises, so we’ll hold off on telling you, but we can tell you that the artwork is superb and the conversation is enlightening and entertaining. So get those submissions rolling in, and help us make the October issue another stunning collection of the best in contemporary reproduction-based arts.
And don’t forget, the best way to submit is to BECOME A SUBSCRIBER. Subscribers can submit to four issues for no additional charge. It works out to almost half the cost of submitting to four issues individually. So it’s a heck of a deal. But if you just want to try it and see before committing, regular submissions also include a copy of the magazine (so it’s like a single issue subscription) whether the work is published or not.
We’re excited to see what you’ve been working on and we hope you’ll share it with us and our readers. Take care of yourself and each other. Let’s join hands.
