I forget to ask artists for testimonials. So, I am always pleased when an artist spontaneously decides to send one. Yesterday, I received this unsolicited testimonial–just sharing an excerpt here:

hi marie…i read your e-book and thus far it has helped me tremendously. (just recently got my work in an online magazine after YEARS of no publicity) I believe the issue will be released to the public and when it does, i’ll be sure to alert you. Thanks so much!  now, I’m hoping to connect with curators in my area and ask that you “introduce” me to (name omitted) etc…  artist, candace pryor

Artists Ask: Where can I find info on how to submit my artwork to art licensing companies?

I frequently post Calls for Artists to Submit on this blog. Two days ago, I posted information about a fine art publishing company that is currently accepting submissions from artists.

Artists asked—How do I submit? Where can I find info on how to submit my artwork to art licensing companies?

Yes, you are on the right track by asking questions!  Art licensing companies receive many submissions daily. It is important to make a professional looking submission. Why? If an artist submission is sloppy the company representative reviewing submissions may deleted it!  Yes, this is true. In your art licensing submission it is important that specific words are used, or your submission may be deleted. Why? Because professionals in this industry do not have a lot of time to educate artists. It is up to the artist to find out the correct approach before contacting the companies about their artwork.

You will find information on the correct ways to make submissions in my ebook the Transmedia Artist Guide to Making Artist Submissions.  The ebook format gives artists immediate access to the information they need.

Visual artists, the Transmedia Artist Guide to Making Artist Submissions contains tips, 100’s of resource links, and cover letters for you to adapt and use for making your own submissions, in any media, to get your art viewed by art licensing company reps, fine art publishers, art gallerists, museum curators, corporate art consultants, and others in positions to help you take the next step up in your art career. Artists use the information in this book to create their own opportunities and  income streams that will support your art-making practice.

The sample letters in this ebook are based on actual letters used to obtain solo exhibitions, lucrative art licensing contracts, representation with top artist agencies, and contracts for lucrative Giclee print sales internationally. Adapt and use the cover letters in this ebook to make your own submissions.
