12-Pages Online Project Space Call for Submissions - Issue 7

TBC Artists' Collective has now announced an open call for submissions to its June 12-Pages Online Project Space. Applicants are asked to make a new artwork in response to the theme of 'RADICALS'.

The Regency era spawned a group of revolutionary artists, writers and thinkers - including Thomas Paine, Mary Shelley, Mary Wollstonecraft, William Blake and Lord Byron - who became known as the Radicals. It was a period in British history in which the opinions voiced and artistic expression were at a level never before witnessed.

For this brief you are invited to consider modern-day radicals of the last twenty years. Work can be created by means of homage, reference, quote or interpretation. Submissions should incorporate elements of drawing process within finished outcomes, with an emphasis on your chosen radical. The notion of 'radical' can be as rigid or as loose as you feel comfortable with.

  • Send all images as JPEGs, minimum 72-maximum 150dpi, min 400Kb, max 1Mb
  • Send all text documents as .doc, unless presented as a 'drawing' or 'image' in PDF format. Limit body text to 3,000 words
  • If the contributing artist has a clear idea as to how their word should be displayed, the desired layout should be submitted as a PDF. The editor's decision is final.

  • 12-Pages does not accept previously published material, and does not expect works commissioned for 12-Pages to be used elsewhere before publication of the issue concerned
  • The contributing artist retains full rights to their work. If the artist wishes to reprint or publish the work in future, TBC Artists' Collective asks that the relevent issue of 12-Pages be credited
  • Due to the high volume of submissions received, TBC Artists' Collective can only enter into correspondence with those whose works have been accepted, and cannot give critical feedback on submissions.
  • Editor-in-chief has final say over all editorial decisions.
All responses should be sent to by midnight on 31st May 2011 to be considered for inclusion in the 12-Pages Online Project Space. RADICALS will be published online in June 2011.
