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.

We have a biannual theme call. Submissions have to relate to or be an interpretation of the theme.

Issue 4 — Fall/Winter '22

We are currently open for submissions for our Fall/Winter '22 book, issue N°4.

The theme for this book will be surrealism. We want to dive into the illogical, nonsensical, contradictory surreality of our inner workings. Crossing the boundaries of reality to your sub or super reality — we are curious to see what story you have to tell. So channel your inner Man Ray, René Magritte, David Lynch or Salvador Dalí and show us your world.

Our print publication will be released end of October. The deadline for all print submissions is 12 September 23:59h GMT. After the deadline, we cannot accept print submissions anymore.

For issue N°4, we will be accepting 15 submissions, one of which may be the cover. For specifics, please continue reading below.

Photography submissions

Photography submissions should be in 300dpi TIFF. We publish in spreads of 8 or 10 pages but welcome more images so we have more room to select the images that fit the book best.

We mostly receive fashion photography submissions but are also open to other photography fields. We like a good balance of different stories so don't be afraid to submit.

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

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.

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.

Fiction submissions

For the first time, we will also be accepting short fiction submissions. Especially with the theme of our upcoming book, we can't wait to see what stories you want to tell. It can range from satire to fantasy, crime, sci-fi, romance or horror.

For short fiction submissions, we recommend a maximum length of 1.200 words. For longer submissions, we recommend a maximum length of 2.400 words.

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.

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 We cannot accept all interview pitches — we will mostly look at interviews that fit the story we want to tell for that season.

Last but not least...

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 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. The rest of the team will receive the e-book.

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

On 19 September, we will let all submitting artists know whether works have been accepted or denied.
