We are aware of the financial strain that COVID-19 has placed on artists in our community and around the world. We wish to acknowledge how this has led to being a significant barrier to submitting your art work to our next publication, THEME: DREAMS. We do not want to restrict your ability to make submissions due to not being able to make the payment.
FREE SUBMISSIONS FOR THEME DREAMS
We also acknowledge that this is a wonderful opportunity for emerging photographers that may be interested in the process of submitting their work to organizations but may feel nervous about the process or financial commitment.
We encourage all analogue photographers who may be new to the field or seasoned professionals to consider making a submission, and welcome submissions from every "darkroom" in the world.
In the past we have included publications and shipping worldwide with our modest submission fee (in lieu of artist fees), however we are not able to continue to do the same with this free submission. Please see out submissions guidelines HERE or
As we are largely artist and reader supported, there are many ways you can help us fund our publication (including artist fees), if you are still able to financially.
HOW TO SUPPORT SEITIES!
PREORDER THEME DREAMS
As some may still be able to and wanting to support the production of our next publication, please consider preordering your copy! With enough orders, it will ensure we are able to print and support artists with appropriate artist fees for published works.
Another way to support SEITIES, if you are able to, is to purchase a membership. Our memberships have also increased in price but we will continue to include a copy of the publication that submissions were made to AND includes many of the great benefits still. Also included is the potential to be our feature Member and new virtual member's nights.
We will also have early registration access for our members to our virtual events.
Remember we are also a gallery! If you are local (Calgary, Alberta), we have a wonderful online GALLERY with many available prints of our SEITIES artists that can be delivered with no contact. Some prints may be available to ship internationally.
All artwork we have locally are presented on our virtual gallery here:
Another support channel is to make an individual donation. Unfortunately we cannot provide a tax receipt for these donations and are looking at unique ways to say thank you to our donors.
