We Challenge You!

Have you discovered your creative niche and can’t wait to share it with the world? Was one of your resolutions to have a piece of art published in one of our magazines this year?  Make this year be THE year! Below I’ve listed just a few of our upcoming challenges to tempt and inspire you. We know that you have artwork sitting pretty on your shelves, so send it our way for a chance to show up on the pages of one of our upcoming issues!

Altered Couture: Menswear Re-Do
Do you have a magical touch when it comes to altering men’s garments? Whether you take an old coat and turn it into a chic blazer for yourself or alter something for the man in your life, we want to see your creations! We are accepting clothing and accessories tailored for men and boys alike.

Deadline: March 15, 2012

Art Doll Quarterly: Shelf Sitter Challenge

Those cute little dolls with bendable knees are often called shelf sitters. They perch on mantles and shelves, and can be created out of felt, cloth, clay, wood, and more. Create a shelf sitter doll out of your preferred medium–make sure it can sit stably with bended knees!

Deadline: March 15, 2012.

Artful Blogging

Discover a world filled with visual delights from today’s most inspirational artists, writers, and photographers. If you are the creator of a blog or know of one that you think other creative minds would enjoy, send them our way. We are always on the lookout for new talent!

Deadline: March 15th, 2012

GreenCraft

Have you taken a burned-out light bulb and made it into a beautiful flower vase? Have you transformed old board games into notebooks? We want you to upcycle normally discarded items and turn them into ecologically chic creations. Give the environment a hand and submit your recycled, reused and repurposed items.

Deadline: March 15, 2012.

    I have mine packaged and ready to go! I’ve never submitted before but decided this is the year I’m going for it! Big package heading your way!

  2. Stacey says:

    Hi!
    I checked the Challenges and Calls page, but did not see dn email address for Somerset Home submissions, can you tell me the address? Thank you!

  3. Pamela says:

    Hi I have a challenge for an upcoming Stampinton issue. I have always wanted to see a challenge on making hats, all kinds of hats from the 1800′s to the present. Maybe even a special issue full of those beautiful designed hats.

  4. Moon says:

    If a piece if chosen for publication, how long before the publication goes on sale is an artist/designer notified?

    Thank you!

    • Elysa says:

      Hi Moon! If your artwork is chosen for a featured article piece, the editor of the magazine will be in contact with you. If your piece is chosen to be featured in a gallery (the section that includes instructions on how to make your piece), our Art Management Coordinator will try her best to mail back your artwork before the magazine comes out. If you would like more information, please don’t hesitate to send an email to artmanagement@stampington.com.

  5. Being published in one of your magazines has been my dream for many years! I’m ready to send some art your way! Thanks for the reminder!

  6. Annie Collins says:

    Hi,

    I’d like to submit a couple items but I have two questions:

    1st, one of my pieces has not been published in a hardcopy format but is in my DeviantArt gallery- can I still send it or does that count as being previously published?

    2nd, I can’t afford to send return postage for all the pieces. Can I submit an email with photos attached and, if any of my artwork is accepted, send the actual items after acceptance?

    Just want to get the facts straight before I send anything… Thanks!

    AC

    • Elysa says:

      Hi Annie! Yes, you can still send in art that has been shared on gallery sites like DeviantArt, and you can feel free to submit photos for consideration. Hope this helps!

  7. Annie Collins says:

    Perfect! Thank you! :)

  8. reclaimed wood frames says:

    The upcycled one from Oddee is genius with a quirk, I am inspired to create something similar!

  9. loansafe says:
