Call for Submissions for Cover Art for “Safe”

We are excited to feature the work of new writers and artists in the pages of Oregon Humanities. The cover of the Spring 2015 issue is Ground Control by Bill Finger.

If you’re an artist and have work that we might consider for the Summer 2015 issue, on the theme “Safe,” we’d love to know about it. Please familiarize yourself with our publication (back issues viewable here), then send us the following by July 8, 2015:

  • A high-resolution digital image (300 dpi at 8” x 10”; scans or photographs, JPEG or TIFF)
  • Your name, the title of the work, the type of media, as well as contact information (email and phone number)
  • Description of the relationship of the image to the theme

Please consider the constraints of a magazine cover (e.g., vertical orientation, nameplate, and cover lines). We are most interested in works by Oregon-based artists.
Submissions can be sent to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or by post to Oregon Humanities magazine, 921 SW Washington St., #150, Portland, OR 97205.
