Submission Deadlines and

Advertising Rates

         Artist's Journal


Your art 'news' is

published free of charge . . .

but classes, lessons, and workshops,

are considered 'paid advertising'


“News” is a Call for Entry, Art Show & Sale, or Exhibit

There is no charge for this. Please submit a Press Release in a Word document or other format that allows "cutting and pasting" (not a PDF or jpg) or type your submission within your e-mail message in plain text, please. Submission tips: Even though your event may not happen right away, consider that your entry deadline may fall on the dates of the current issue. Always include the actual street address of your event or your location and a contact e-mail or phone for readers who may need more information. These are both very important and should be published in your news item! 




"Ad" or "Advertising" refers to paid space

Two sizes of bordered display ads are available:

1/8 page $85 (3" x 3.5") and business card size $65 (2" x 3.5").

GST is not charged. Please reserve your advertising space

one week earlier than the deadline. Please submit your camera-ready ad as a jpg or Eve can design your ad for you (no extra charge).


There is also Classified Advertising space available:

$12 minimum charge for up to 25 words and .10c for each extra word.

Published since 1997, The Artist’s Journal remains the only source of province-wide Calls For Entry for B.C.’s artists who paint or draw. There is a growing number of paid subscribers. Your message will be seen by hundreds of British Columbia artists.

Please submit your news!

     I am very grateful to those who regularly submit news. It is impossible for me to search every arts organization's website for news! I appreciate the many who voluntarily send me their Calls and Shows, which are free to publish (lessons and workshops are considered paid advertising. However, if you submit a Call or Show, you can briefly mention your workshop, etc., at the end of your news item).

       Those not in regular contact with your news, please include The Artist’s Journal on your “media mailing list.” Send your ‘press releases’ of your events. If this is not possible, let me include your e-mail in my news source list: you will receive a deadline reminder notice just before each issue, allowing you to submit your news on time for publication.  Click here to be put on this list.
