Submissions & Tips

Colossal welcomes submissions in the realm of visual art, photography, sculpture, painting, installation, collage, paper, illustration or drawing, street art, architecture, industrial design, textile, animation, documentaries, and anything else involving a strong (generally non-digital) visual aspect. In the course of daily coverage we generally do not cover fashion, book or app reviews, coverage of websites, music, literature, phone accessories, call for entries, or upcoming events without supporting imagery. Colossal is used in numerous classrooms globally from grade school through the university level, and while we recognize the importance of all artistic subject matter, if your project involves sex, violence or particularly sensitive topics it regrettably may not be appropriate at this time. Sorry!

Colossal does not accept products or compensation for editorial coverage with the exception of weekly sponsored posts. If you are interested in sponsoring a post please contact Nectar Ads.

How to Submit to Colossal

If you wish to send tips regarding work that is not your own, please do. Just use the email address provided below.

Here’s the skinny on sending your own work: many submissions arrive each week so please help me understand your project quickly. Send a brief email with a basic description of your work and please attach a few relevant images sized at 800px wide or much larger. File size is not an issue. Zip files, DOCs, press releases, RARs, and PDFs will not be reviewed. In some cases you may include one or two web links directly to the project in question (ie. your film or your website). If what you wish to show is buried in a portfolio or gallery website we may not click through everything, so help me get started in the right spot.

You will receive an automatic response if your submission is successfully received, so there is no need to resubmit your project after that. Every submission is carefully considered, though due to volume we are unable to respond personally. Submissions can be sent to [email protected]—please DO NOT subscribe this email address to your press list.

Attention galleries and event organizers: we appreciate the submission of your next exhibition/event. As this is a visual blog, please attach relevant installation views or existing photos of the artist’s work. If no imagery exists please submit when you’re able to obtain photos. Thank you.
