Reed plans to feature a portfolio of work by a single artist for the Mary Blair Award for Art, which includes the cover and eight additional images for an interior spread, printed in full color on high-quality stock. Reed 152 is an open-themed issue. Contestants are also encouraged to include a link to a digital portfolio.
Art submissions may include up to five pieces of art, including photography.
Please be sure to:
- include your name, address, phone number, and email address on the first page
- articulate the details of the medium, including any modifications made to photos
- ensure submissions are rendered in an easily accessible format such as .jpg
- provide a brief bio
- make sure your Submittable profile is up-to-date
Artists are invited to submit their best work to be considered for the Mary Blair Award for Art, which pays winners $1,000. Each submission of up to five art pieces must be accompanied by a $20 entry fee, which includes a free copy of the latest edition of Reed. (We are sorry that we cannot send complimentary journals to contestants outside the USA because of the cost of postage.)
Contestants who do not win the Mary Blair Award may also be considered for publication, both in print and on our website.
