Artwork should be submitted in digital format. Artists may submit up to 3 pieces at once, but please wait for a response from us before sending more. Artwork may be resized, but will not be cropped or otherwise altered without the artist’s permission. Please send us artwork that will still look good when resized or reformatted.
