What kind of submissions does A BOOK OF publish and look for?
The goal of A BOOK OF is to feature, publish and share a wide array of talents. We aim to inspire but also encourage people universally to make the world a better place through Art. We accept and curate photography, photo essays, photography portfolios, poetry, interviews, artist features, personal essays, short stories, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, short film, illustration, paintings, fashion editorials, etc.
Our target market is global so the content that we curate must have a timeless element to it- devoid of any reins from trends, news and current events.

Fashion Photography Submissions
We would love to publish your fashion editorial stories granted that you follow certain specific rules prior to submission.
Your fashion story must have at least 5 different wardrobe looks using clothing pieces from different designers.
Unfortunately, we can't run a fashion story from a single designer because it will look like a campaign / lookbook.
Send us horizontal and vertical file options. We need at least 2 horizontal options for layout.
Send us low resolution files via email or a single PDF contact sheet. If your submission is accepted, we will send you further notes and request the high resolution files from you.

Published stories online will be collected as a part of a curated Print-on-demand book. Print-On-Demand Issues will be released and purchased via Issuu, Magcloud, and Peecho.
Sales of the Print-on-demand issues will be donated to the Portraits of Love Project
QUARTERLY ART BOOK
A limited edition collectible Art Book (that will be distributed worldwide) will be released quarterly in A book Form. Contents of the book are commissioned and curated based on the specific theme of the issue. Each issue will have a theme that supports a specific cause, charity or institution.
At this point, A BOOK is run independently so until further notice, all contributors remain unpaid until we meet certain advertising revenue levels and also until production costs are met.
At the moment, we won’t be able to provide individual responses to every contributor. If you are accepted for consideration we will notify you within 2-4 weeks. Generally, if you haven’t heard from us in 8-10 weeks, we are likely unable to publish your work.
For Online and Print-On-Demand issues, we accept submissions all year round.
For the Collectible Art Book Issues, a submission call and deadline will be posted as soon as we start things rolling.
