Submission fees are used to help pay for the costs of running this website, podcast, and other programming. Fees help to pay fair wages for our podcast editor. While the need for funding is high, we also resolve to keep fees low.
This project is run by a teaching artist (Rebecca Potts Aguirre). I am all too familiar with high submission fees. Even $30 adds up when you’re applying for many exhibitions and opportunities. This project is a labor of love. It is financially supported through generous donations, sales from our shop, affiliate income from our book recommendations, ads and other forms of sponsorship, and mostly my own investments.
We do not believe in crowdfunding on the backs of artists. We believe in supporting artists by offering a platform to share work and offering feedback for those who are not selected. To apply to our open calls, click here.
If you would like to donate to support this project, we love you! Thank you!!
You can also support this project in many other ways.
If you know of grant opportunities that would be right for us or sponsors who might be interested in working with us, please let us know! We’d love to continue growing this project, hiring help at fair wages, while keeping any fees super low or non-existent.
