Altered Couture banner

Get Published: March Calls and Challenges

A hand-me-down sweater … a raggedy old skirt from the thrift store … a plain T-shirt … all of these items can be repurposed into new, fashionable finds with just a few tools and a little creativity. We invite you to submit your own altered and embellished clothing items to be considered for publication in Altered Couture. Items published in the past include skirts, dresses, pants, tops, jackets, vests, shoes, and accessories.

Please submit a “before” photo along with your altered creation, if available. Photos and illustrations showing your process are also strongly encouraged. We also encourage you to submit to our challenges below.
Deadline: March 15th

Playin’ With Paint
For this new and exciting challenge, we’re putting your painting skills to the test! We want you to upcycle or alter an existing garment, accessory, or shoes, and incorporate paint. You can use a lot or a little, but be creative! Think dye baths, ombré, painted patterns, splatters, and exciting accents. You can also choose to alter the piece in other interesting ways, such as embellishment or reconstruction. Make sure to send in your submission before the deadline.
Deadline: March 15th

Even if you don’t envision yourself as an athlete, we know that being physically active is important to our health. So what’s your favorite way to get moving?  Do you play tennis twice a week, love to ice skate, or enjoy the calming stretches of yoga? Maybe your thing is basketball, soccer, skateboarding, surfing, or skiing. Create a doll that expresses some form of athletics, whether it’s a sport or hobby you participate in or just one that would be fun to personify in a doll. Results will be published in our Autumn 2016 Issue.
Deadline: March 15th

GreenCraft Walking
Have you ever made a dress from old T-shirts, or fashioned a skirt from a vintage tablecloth? This department highlights recycled materials that have been transformed into a brand new outfit to be worn out and about. If you ever had big plans to alter that thrifted men’s dress shirt or the outdated sweatshirt that has worn out its welcome, here is the place to submit! Please feel free to explore any kind of recycled material that could be used as a basis for your new outfit.
Deadline: Ongoing.

Repurposing Vintage
Thrift-store shoppers and junkers everywhere: We challenge you to reuse vintage in a fresh, upcycled manner. Adding paint or embellishments are just a couple examples of ways you can breathe new life into vintage items. Why not stop into your local thrift store or secondhand shop for inspiration?
Deadline: Ongoing.

Create With Me
Showing children the value of recycling can be one of the most rewarding and fun green projects of all. We challenge you to explore the many ways that repurposed and recycled materials can be used to make chic and artistic projects for kids. This is a fun and playful challenge, and we encourage you to let your inner child shine! Toys and games made from recycled materials are fantastic, as well as easy-to-follow crafts for seasonal projects like holiday ornaments or Valentine’s gifts. Just remember to keep it simple for small hands.
Deadline: Ongoing.

Green Living
This department is dedicated to showcasing projects that promote a green lifestyle. These items do not have to be made from recycled or repurposed materials, but they do have to be eco-friendly. Reusable fabric towels, homemade household cleaners, and reusable sandwich bags are some examples of what we’re looking for.
Deadline: Ongoing.

Feature Articles
Finding creative and cost-effective uses for old items is nothing new to artists, but the spirit of preserving the planet is more important than ever before. That’s whyGreenCraft Magazine is here — to honor and inspire those who find artistic applications for normally discarded resources. GreenCraft features articles about repurposing trash to treasure and showcases projects where waste is upcycled into ecologically chic creations. Have you found a use for cardboard rolls left over from paper towels? Have you cut up an old T-shirt and knitted it into a purse? Have you taken a burned-out light bulb and made it into a beautiful flower vase? Have you transformed old board games into notebooks? Then we want to hear from you! Submit your recycled, reused and repurposed items to GreenCraft Magazine today!

    I’d love to submit some of my artwork, but not sure which publications.
    I’m working on small mixed media paintings, using my prints/acrylics; tapestry weaving; beaded/macrame jewelry. I use polymer clay too.

    As a retired art teacher, I know how to write lesson plans & instructions.
    Thanks!
    Lesley

      Hi Lesley,
      That sounds amazing! I make mixed-media artwork and jewelry too, so it’s so interesting how you combine the two. I would recommend submitting to Somerset Studio for this mixed-media piece. You can also include a note with your submission that you would like to be considered for additional publications if suitable. I can’t wait to see what you submit!

    I’m a felt artist who works with kids a lot. How do I share some of my,projects, and which publication fits. I have read many of your magazines but can’t seem to find one geared towards,felting art.

    • Sarah says:

      Hi Josie,
      If you make clothing/wearables, then you should submit your felted art to Belle Armoire or Altered Couture. If you make toys, then you might want to try Art Doll Quarterly. Good luck!
