For B.C.'s artists who paint or draw

Submitting your Art News


"news" published at no charge


Calls for Entry are the top news priority of this publication, and Eve continually searches for these on the internet and in the many 'arts newsletters' she receives. But your voluntary submission is also welcome!  Please e-mail your Call For Entry in any format, although a 'typed' format is preferred (such as in a Word document, or typed within your email message). Unlike a jpg or PDF file, a typed format allows "cutting and pasting," which reduces the risk of errors. 

Submission tips: Always include a link to your Call or a contact e-mail or phone number for readers needing more information. And if there is a submission deadline, it must also be included! These are important and should be published in your Call For Entry item. 

E-mail your Call to Eve If you need help wording your submission, Download this guide as a template.


ART SHOW submission


Your Art Show or Exhibition "news" is also published free of charge, but this is not the priority of this publication. Art Shows appear only as an added feature in The Artist's Journal. Therefore, your art show must be submitted voluntarily (Eve does not search for them online, as she does for Calls), and they must be submitted in a typed format that is easy to 'cut and paste' into the publication. This helps avoid errors in spelling and other information. The information within a JPG image or PDF of your Art Show can't be "cut and pasted," so please do not submit a poster: It may not be published. Instead, submit your Art Show typed into your e-mail or attach it as a Word document. E-mail it to Eve Lees.

Submission tips: Please include the exact address of the show and a contact phone/e-mail or website link for readers to go to for more information. It is also recommended to look at the Art Shows column to see the preferred wording of the Art Shows published in The Artist's Journal. If you need help writing your news submission, download this guide to use as a template.


NOTE: Art Lessons and Workshops are not published free of charge. They are considered paid advertising (as a classified or display ad).

Your news will be seen by many B.C. artists.


Send me

your news!


I am very grateful to those who regularly submit their Calls For Entry "news." It is a massive task for me to search every arts organization's website, so I greatly appreciate the many who voluntarily send me their Calls, which are free to publish.

Art Shows are also free to publish, but this type of news is not the priority of The Artist's Journal:

If you have time, please read this detailed information about submitting and writing your Art Show news items.

Those not in regular contact with your news, please include The Artist’s Journal on your “media mailing list.” Send a ‘press release’ of your Call for Entry. If this is not possible, let me include your e-mail in my news source list: you will receive an occasional submission reminder, reminding you to submit any Calls (or art shows) that you may be planning.

Publishing industry lingo:

"To advertise" refers to a paid advertisement.

To place a "News item" is submitting a free-of-charge item about your event.
