ArtAscent / Deadline: 05/31/23
The current issue theme is spring. The seasons pull us from one state to another, perhaps from frozen, hibernating and quiet to thawed, reborn, and growing. Sometimes our spring lets us embrace something new, fall into first love, or see fresh horizons. Spring brings birds, butterflies, frogs, nests, tulips and fragrant blossoms. What's the seasonal impact in your world? What makes spring more tantalizing than winter or summer? Spring can be literal, abstract, emotional or intellectual; past, present or future; brief or lifelong. Express your spring with words or imagery.
Entries may include all art mediums that can be represented in 2D and written explorations of up to 1,800 words. We love diversity. Submissions must be the original work of the applicant(s). Creatives featured in the past can apply again with other works not previously published in ArtAscent.
The selected artists and writers, up to 40, will be published in our print and digital magazine and the two-year online exhibition, as well as receive a free digital copy of the magazine. Four will also receive a feature section with a profile written about them. All benefit from exposure to art lovers and engage our readers through our social media, website, and print and digital issues. ArtAscent provides the opportunity for the voices and visions of writers and artists to be shared in a professional and accessible platform.
Dialogue and critique are important to the SPE mission.
Please join the conversation.
