Now that I’ve spent some time planning the winter issue (out in January) and have figured out its working themes (wire, connections, scribbles/doodles and numerals), it’s time to announce the open calls! Here’s are three ways you can get involved. (Plus a really exciting one that I’ll announce soon!)
* Sign up before September 19 to participate
One of the themes in issue 28 is “wire”, but I’d also like explore wireless connections. So much of the UPPERCASE community is online, sharing their creativity with the world. I thought it might be a fun experiment to randomly pair UPPERCASE readers with one another and have them interview each another and discover each others’ stories, interests and talents. Your findings can be written or visual and I’ll follow up with how you can submit the results of your connection. So that it’s manageable, I’m closing this submission THIS SATURDAY.
Doodles and Scribbles
Deadline: September 30
We’re looking for your doodles and scribbles. What do you draw when your subconscious is on autopilot? What recurring motifs or images do you doodle? Submit here.
Deadline: October 15
Do you use wire or wire-like materials in your art, craft and design projects? Metal wire, chicken wire, jewellery wire, coat hangers, cables… lots of art and creative projects can be made with these materials. Please share your projects for possible inclusion in the January-February-March 2016 issue of UPPERCASE magazine. Submit here.
