Call for submissions: Gleaner December cover-art
The Gleaner Community Press is a local independent press that serves
Toronto's west downtown communities with two monthly newspapers, The
Annex Gleaner and The Liberty Gleaner.
Every holiday edition, the Gleaner features community and
holiday-themed artwork on our December covers. They are currently
looking for submissions reflecting this theme.
In the past, the covers have generally been traditional
interpretations of this themeâ€”snowy Annex streetscapes, snowmen and
Santa Clausâ€“but they are open to any and all images reflecting this
theme. Photos, painting, collage, mixed-media, comics, drawings etc.
are all welcome.
Here are the details:
- Deadlines for submissions are Monday, November 21.
- We are looking for two pieces of artwork to feature on our covers,
one for our Annex edition and one for our Liberty edition.
- We will consider both original art and any previous work the artist
may have that they feel is appropriate.
- Bonus points if the artist is local or the art has a local tie-in.
- The artwork will take up the full cover of the Gleaner, fitting
into a 10 inch by 10 inch space. Please submit in a jpeg, or psd
format. Images must be at least 300 dpi.
The artist will not be financially compensated for their work but it
is good local exposure. We will include a short bio of the artist and
a description of the work inside the paper.
All submissions can be sent toÂ firstname.lastname@example.org .
