Looking for Submissions from Artists for Magazine Cover Art Publication Opportunity

I received a request from Beth, to share the news with artists that they are seeking artwork to publish on the cover of The Reader–here are the details:

Dear Marie,

I’m writing from The Reader Organisation, a social enterprise in the North West. We work to connect people with great literature through shared reading. We also publish a quarterly literary magazine called The Reader which offers great writing wherever we can find it, presenting big names and new voices side by side.

We’re always looking for submissions from cover artists to showcase their talent and to help them gain more exposure, and I wondered whether it would be possible to list The Reader under Art Magazines and Publications Submit list?

To read a little bit more about The Reader, please see our website: http://www.thereader.org.uk/magazine.aspx

As Beth requested, I’ve added The Reader to the Artist Marketing Resource list of Art Magazines, art blogs, art publishers for #artists to submit to increase visibility.  Click here to access that PDF list.

Curating Contemporary Blog

I’m continually on the look-out for quality fine art blogs, and I like to share the best of them with my own blog readers.

Yesterday, I discovered The Curating Contemporary blog which seems to have launched about a year ago in April 2013.  The blog currently has a feature interview with artist Clayton Colvin in Birmingham, Alabama, USA, with lots of studio shots and artworks. Since I just found the blog, I don’t know how frequently they publish. But you will find previously published blog posts in the sidebar menu on the Curating Contemporary blog here.

I’ve added Curating Contemporary to my 45 page list of links to art magazines and blogs for artists to read and submit to get their work featured–find the list here.

Touch.My.Prints. ISSUE02   IMAGE vs DATA

Photography has long been concerned with data retention within the act of the photograph. Photographers are taught to expose, develop, and digitally capture in a method to maintain the most information possible. Every step in a photographer’s workflow is a careful dance to keep data. Film or digital, every photographic process is essentially the mastery of data retention. The reasoning is, having the most information available allows for the most creative interpretations of the information.

Touch.My.Prints wants to explore this concept of the photography as data as opposed to image. TMP will provide an image for every participant to take. Each participant will use the image as data and create a new piece of work. The new work can be video, sculpture, sound, video, even a drastic reinterpretation of the image, etc. A selection of the new works and their creators will be featured in Touch.My.Prints. ISSUE02.

The deadline is June 01, 2013.

INSTRUCTIONS

Save the image. Use the data the image file provides to create a new piece of work. The new work can take any form, any medium, any function, in fact, preferably so. Then send the new work to TouchMyPrints @ gmail .com following the guidelines below.

Slanted Magazine CUBAN POSTER ART Project

Slanted21_CUBANPOSTERART_01

Slanted magazine is a major design, illustration, and photography magazine based in Germany. Their site is in English and German and has a translation option, as well, for translating the site into other languages. If you have a book project of your own to promote, or other design related artwork, you can show your projects to Slanted magazine readers with a free portfolio account that you will receive when you buy Slanted magazine issues in their shop. On the Slanted magazine website, you will see in the upper menu *Portfolios* which has a drop-down menu list that includes Design Portfolios, Illustration Portfolios, Graphics, Interactive, and Typography. If your artwork fits any of those categories, a portfolio of your work included their could bring you visibility.

The current Slanted magazine project is a special poster issue and exhibition series–

CUBAN POSTER ART – 

The New Generation

Special Edition – SLANTED MAGAZINE #21 will be released in spring 2013. This special issue will be released as 320 page volume of Cuban poster art by the most brilliant artists working today including exhibitions complementing and illustrating the publication internationally.

GOAL: PUBLICATION AND EXPOSITION

This special issue of Slanted, CUBAN POSTER ART – The New Generation, will be released in spring 2013, attracting attention to an international level. This project has the goal to raise € 10,000 (≈ $ 13,000) additionally to our usual budget. We want to cover expenses we usually don’t have:

  1. For an exhibitions with original silkscreened posters, touring from city to city. Shipping, organization and insurances for first shows in Berlin, Leipzig and Paris will cost € 4,000 (≈ $ 5,200)
  2. Translations: The magazine will be bilingual (Spanish/English). With a volume of 320 pages we will have to translate all interviews and texts either to English or Spanish. This needs to be done professionally and will be € 4,500 (≈ $ 5,800)
  3. Additional print of 1,000 copies that will be shipped to Cuba. Whoever has been in Cuba knows how hungry Cubans are for good printed matter. Extra printing: € 1,500 (≈ $ 1,950)

This project funded will enable us to share what we see as being an extraordinary inside view into Cuban design, reflecting the reality of life in Cuba and the beauty that lies within its complexity.

Artists: Inside Info On How You Can Influence Online Arts Content

English: Screen Capture of article of front pa...

English: Screen Capture of article of front page of Yahoo! (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I’m going to tell you how I get paid for the articles I write and publish. The purpose of this blog post is not to tell you how I get paid. Even though I do that. The purpose of this post is to let you know that you have more control over online content than you think!

How can you exert control over online content?

If you’re like me, you’ve signed up to receive notices in your email inbox or RSS feed when your favorite online authors publish new articles on such sites as Mashable, Huffington Post Arts, Yahoo! Movies, and many others.

You may wonder how authors are paid for their ideas and time researching and writing these articles. The answer may surprise you!

As contributing writer for both Yahoo! and Technorati News I am paid a dollar amount each time someone clicks on a link within my published articles. Those clicks represent my click-through rate.

Who pays me?

Yahoo! pays based on click-through-rate on links within my Yahoo! articles. I also receive a much lesser amount based on the total number of reader views that my article receives. Yahoo! deposits payments into my PayPal account. Yahoo! also provides extensive analytics so I can track my readership and earnings, and via those stats I can easily see what articles and article topics are the most popular and what links receive the most clicks. (Of course I want to get paid for my work, so I consider these stats when planning future articles).

Technorati news has a similar set-up. Since they are closely linked to Google–with all Technorati news articles feeding into Google news–Google pays me. Google pays varying amounts for each click on links within my published Technorati news articles. I track those clicks, readership numbers, and payment amounts per article via my Google AdSense account. (Again, the more success an article brings the more l will want to write on that topic in future articles and promote those articles enthusiastically).

So you are probably thinking that for each article authors must receive hundreds or even thousands of dollars in total clicks–but that is just not the case!

While hundreds or even thousands of readers may read any given article online, the number of clicks on links within an article is generally quite low. This is frustrating to all authors of online articles–even top authors! “We all have that problem,” one top author told me when I asked about improving click-through rates.

Why do hundreds of people read online articles without clicking on those internal links? This phenomenon is something that many experts have analyzed and written about in numerous articles on click-through-rates. This payment structure I have described is why you often see sensationalized,  rather silly or limited value content online—the authors are hoping to find a gimmick that will make their content a hit so that it will go viral and they will receive a large number of click-throughs and high total payment.

So what does this mean to you?

Think about it. Now you better understand the secret to exerting control over what gets published online!  

If you have favorite online authors you’d like to keep around and support, then thoroughly review their articles and click on those article links of interest to see where they go! Share the articles you like best with others via email. Use the share features to post articles to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and other social media site and include comments on why you like the article. You are exerting control over online content with each click and share. With each click you are paying those authors who provide the information you like and value. Your clicks bring attention to those articles, and attention both to the authors and the content subjects.  Remember, Google is watching and analyzing those stats you generate when you click. Google pays authors for each click, so you can be sure that they pay attention to where their money goes. It’s easy to let Google know what you like and value with each click.

You the reader have more control over online content than you think! If you want Google to place more value on art related content then support those authors who write on the arts by clicking on those internal article links and sharing those articles widely.

Want more online articles on your own artworks published?

Authors of articles value a well written press release that provides the full details and includes jpeg images. ( I am glad to receive these from artists.) Now that you know that most authors of online articles do not receive an hourly rate of pay, you understand how important it is for you to provide full details in your press releases and keep your website Newsroom up to date.

One artist, who didn’t even have a blog or website, once told me–”you can go around and search the web for information about me”, when I asked him for a press release.  WRONG! If you don’t have time to write a press release, I don’t have free time to do that for you, and neither do other authors of online content. If you want to become the subject of more online articles, get more exposure and visibility for your art, then it is up to you to organize,  present and provide your information.

Artists and Arts Organizations may send their press releases to me, Marie Kazalia, via email, at: MarieKazalia@gmail.com

SAMPLE ARTICLE: Here is the link to one of my recently published Technorati articles containing artist news.
