We are most excited by visual artworks which take evocative and surprising paths in probing our subtle cultural and physical landscapes . As an online journal, we’re interested in art which explores the possibilities of the digital arena, mixing genres and media, or else cleaving to more traditional modes of expression, but doing so in a way which rotates the jewel that is the prairie region to expose new facets.
If a submission consists of digital visual art (a category comprising photography, images of two- and three-dimensional art pieces, film and other moving images), then contributors should be sure to conform to the following requirements. We prefer they submit images of two- or three-dimensional art pieces in *.jpg or *.pdf format. They may submit three to five images, with a filename such as “Lastname_Firstname_2.pdf,” and they should include with the images the artist’s name, the work (’s/s’) title(s), dimensions (L x W), and medium. Images should be scalable, and should be in the highest possible resolution.
Video submissions may be short films, documentaries or other forms of video art which are up to 15 minutes in length. Contributors may submit their video work in *.avi, *.mp4, *.mov, or *.flv format.
Whatever the genre or format, contributors of visual art should be sure to accompany their submission with a cover letter containing 1) contact information, 2) a bio, 3) an explanation of their intentions with their project(s), and 4) (if appropriate) their processes.
