Submit

Currant Magazine is a platform for artists in photography, fashion, styling, videography, illustration, writing, poetry and other creative fields. We strive to create a space for artists (established as well as emerging) to showcase works with creative freedom.

Submissions have to relate to or be an interpretation of the theme.

Issue n°5 — the fashion issue (the anniversary issue)

For Issue N°5, we want to dive into the world of fashion.
The world is changing at an immensely fast pace. After life-changing events such as the pandemic, the war, the economic recession, we wonder what the meaning of fashion is in today's world. What is the meaning of trends? How does self expression come into play? Ultimately, what is fashion? And what direction is the future of fashion going?

Issue N°5 will be our fifth issue and hence we are turning it into an anniversary issue — with 480 pages (instead of our regular 360 pages), more printed copies and sales in 12 selected countries. If you ever thought about submitting, now is the time!

Photography submissions

Photography submissions should be in 300dpi TIFF.
For Issue N°5, we publish in spreads of 8 or 12 pages, but advise that you send more images so we have more room to select the images that fit the book best.

We want to know what the story is of your submission and what triggered you to create the story. So send in a title & an explanation of the story.

For artists who have already been published with us before, we also provide pull letters.

For Issue N°5, we are looking for 12 fashion and beauty photography series. Additionally we are looking for 4 stills photography series.

For Issue N°5 we are also welcoming graphic design suggestions for your spread, to allow you with even more creativity for your story. So if you want to propose the design for your spread as well with a graphic designer (or by yourself), send in your submission including a pdf file and the used fonts.

Other visual submissions

Other visual submissions may include illustrations, digital collages, paintings or works of other visual fields.

To make sure that we can print it, all visual submissions should be in 300dpi TIFF. We publish in spreads of 6 pages but welcome more visuals so we have more room to select the best images for the book.

We want to know what the story is of your submission and what triggered you to create the story. So send in a title & an explanation of the story.

Poetry submissions

Currant Magazine publishes a number of poetry submissions as well.

For our poetry submissions, we mostly look for haikus or short form poetries no longer than 16 lines.

Short film submissions

For our online publications, we have an open short film submission. It could be a short film accompanying a photography submission or a standalone short film. We welcome short films in all categories, ranging from fashion, to fantasy, romance, horror or sci-fi.

We want to know what the story is of your submission and what triggered you to create the story. So send in a title & an explanation of the story.

Interview submissions

If you're an artist with a new series and you'd like to pitch your works for a feature or an interview, just send an email to our editorial coordinator Jacob at editorial@currantmag.com. We cannot accept all interview pitches — we will mostly look at interviews that fit the story we want to tell for that season.

Most importantly...

The deadline for Issue N°5 is Friday 14 July '23. If your submission has been accepted, we will let you know on Friday 21 July '23.

For all submissions, please fill in the form below. We love completed forms so please fill in as complete as possible.

Because storytelling is at the core for our books, don't forget to explain the concept or story behind your submission. The text won't be published but it gives us an idea of where you're coming from.

If you are hesitant about your submission, you can send your concept or mood board to our creative coordinator Emma an email at creative@currantmag.com to see your chances of getting published.

All accepted submissions for print, will also be published online. For each accepted submission, we send one copy of the book to the submitting artist when the print comes out and the e-book for the rest of the team.

Works submitted should be exclusive to Currant but may also be commercial works that fit the theme.

we'll be in touch with you!
