Current Open Submission Projects
Black & White: Volume Five Book Submissions
We are currently accepting submissions for the 5th edition of the "Black & White" book series. Submit your art by May 31, 2019.
For the Black & White book series we accept images of black and white artwork, including illustrations, drawings, paintings, and digital art. NO color can be involved in the artwork - it must be strictly black and white. If your piece has any color within the piece it will be de-saturated and printed in B&W if chosen for the book. This project is not seeking tattoo art (though we will have another project later in the year that includes all artistic mediums in full color & black and white).
PLEASE NOTE that we need high-resolution photos (300 dpi) to be able to print your artwork in the book. The images must be of sufficient width and quality to be considered "archival" and images that are low-resolution for display purposes are not acceptable. Uncompressed high-resolution TIFF, JPG, PDF, or EPS files are required for all images. The image specifications are very important! The better your image, the more likely it is to be used (and be large enough to be seen well) if chosen for the book. So PLEASE take these guidelines seriously!
Once an Out of Step Books editor receives and downloads the images, they will send you a link to sign the release form through HelloSign.com and instructions will be provided in that email. Please sign this form promptly, as we cannot use your artwork in the book if we do not have a signed release form on file from you. If you prefer to snail mail a release form, please contact us directly.
Please note that not all images submitted will be used in the book. We will be "collecting and selecting," so submitting does NOT guarantee a spot in the book - but the only way that you can be considered is to send us your work and give it a shot! Each artist selected for publication will be given credit inside of the book below their given artwork.
