Submissions & Suggestions

Colossal welcomes project-based submissions with supporting imagery or video in the realm of contemporary art, photography, sculpture, painting, installation, collage, paper, illustration, street art, architecture, embroidery, textiles, animation, and anything else involving a strong visual aspect. We generally do not cover stories relating to NFTs, AI-generated imagery, VR, software and apps, coloring books, mass-produced plastic objects, music, or literature. Colossal is used in 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, nudity, violence, or particularly sensitive topics it may not be appropriate for our audience.

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.

We receive hundreds of submissions weekly, so please help us understand your project quickly. Send a brief email with a description of your work and attach a few relevant images sized at 1200px wide or larger. ZIP files, WeTransfer downloads, Word docs, or anything requiring a download will not be reviewed. If you send us Google Drive links, please make sure we have access beforehand. We will not follow up. You may also include a link directly to the project. If your work is buried in a portfolio or gallery, we may not click through everything, so help us get started in the right spot.

You will receive a response if your submission is successfully received, so there is no need to submit again or follow up. Please do not submit your work on a repetitive schedule. 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 publication, 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.
