ArtWorld Invites Artists to add their Banner Art to the Changing Online Billboard Space

A few days ago, we announced our take-over and re-opening of ArtWorld.

We’ve had a great response, already adding over a dozen artists and an artist collective to our list of Contributing Editors. Facebook says that there is no limit to the number of people we can add in roles on our page!  So we’d like to add hundreds of artists as Contributing Editors to share their art and art news.

Now we want to open up and enliven the ArtWorld banner/header space for artists to add their art banners there, as well. Our vision is a changing billboard of your art banners at the top of ArtWorld.

As a Contributing Editor, artists simply click on the CHANGE COVER button at the upper left corner of the banner header space to add their own banner–such as to announce a studio sale, online shop sale, exhibition, new work added to online portfolio, and art group or art collective events. The banner will also appear in the main page feed where the artist can then add their link and text description in a comment. Ideally, our artists will be adding new banners frequently!

Artists are also invited to create banners to brand ArtWorld and to inform visitors and label the overall space, such as, a banner with the text of your choice, or a clever aphorism or saying about art. We’d also like to see banners with the text:

ART WORLD

And perhaps some phrases such as:

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL ARTISTS

Art Direct From Artists

Artists are welcome to change the cover art to any banner they create at any time! (Use your own art, your own photos with text, or art and photos by permission. We don’t want copyright infringements.)

ArtWorld is lightly curated. That means if we know you and like what you do you will be accepted. If we meet you and like what you do you will be accepted. Very few may not fit and we may have other specialized platforms for their work.  If you are a visual artist, sound artist, video or photographic artist, or handmade maker of any sort, and you’d like to find out more about becoming an ArtWorld Contributing Editor, *Like* the ArtWorld on Facebook and send a message there. Replies to messages made daily.

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.

Christopher Klim, the editor of Best New Writing, asked me to let artists know that his magazine has a paid opportunity with great exposure. “The artist gets the front and back cover. Right now, it’s wide open. We’re looking for bold, small, and intriguing,” he said.

Best New Writing pays artists for cover images plus full byline and contributors copies.  Best New Writing, which houses the results of the Eric Hoffer Prose Award and the Gover Prize for fiction and creative nonfiction, pays artists for cover images: $75.
