These are our submission guidelines for www.juxtapoz.com.

Current is our news/blog. There is no specific submission process at this time. Anyone can email the web editor with ideas, interestingness, or news.
Please contact the web editor, Evan Pricco - firstname.lastname@example.org, about possible features, reviews, or coverage of art events (photos).
Because we get so many submissions, we have decided that in an effort to get all the great talent out to the public, we're migrating the Reader Art submission process to our new Forum. The whole process is simple and will allow more people to see and critique your artwork.First off, to add your artwork to our forum, you need to be a Juxtapoz user. You can register at www.juxtapoz.com/Create-an-account
Once you have a username and password, you may login and start adding your unique artwork to the Reader Art board under the "Art" category.
This will now be the only manner in which we select artwork to be posted in the Reader Art section online, and will also provide a space for you to get immediate feedback from other Juxtapoz readers.
Image Specs: Images must be 350 pixels wide and at least 300 pixels tall, 72 dpi. Please optimize your images for the web and save them as a .jpg (for photographed/scanned work) or .gif (for vector-based work), in RGB (not CMYK or Index colors), and at 72dpi. Non-digital artwork should be photographed clear, sharp and head on, and presented without background or white space unless the piece is an unusual shape.
Art Info: Please include the title of each piece, media used, and dimensions if you have them. The more information the better.
Your Info: Include your name as you'd like to be credited and your portfolio URL...it can be your MySpace page, LiveJournal blog, Flickr account, or your fancy Flash-based site, but there should be some way for people to contact you and see more of your work.

To submit your gallery for our guide, please send the following information to email@example.com
Gallery name, URL, street address including city, state, country, postal code, and phone number.
There is no submission process for our Links section. It's based on the editorial and advertising content of our website and magazine.
To gain access to add events to our user-generated calendar, you must be a registered Juxtapoz.com user. Register at http://www.juxtapoz.com/Create-an-account.
After clicking "Add an event," (at the botom of the page, an entry form will pop up. Please keep the "subject" line simple with the name of the event or artist featured, followed by the gallery name and location (eg Joe Schmoe@Imaginary Gallery, LA.) Then choose your category (the location where the event is taking place,) add a description of the event in the box below, and if you wish to add an image, click the "insert/edit image" icon (with the tiny mountains on the button) and
Then, in the calendar tab enter the opening date and time of your event. Do not enter dates for the entire run of a show! The calendar is meant to be a resource for art openings and events on one specific day, so if you enter a different end date from your start date, your event will either not be posted or it will take us a longer time to approve! The start date and end date should be the same, but the time should be different. For example, if your show opening/reception is on November 8th from 7-11pm, your start date is 11-08 at 7:00pm and your end date is 11-08 at 11:00pm.
Overall, you only need to enter very basic info in the common and calendar tabs. We apologize if this is confusing, but our site activity has increased to the point where the calendar was simply overwhelmed and not functioning at all, so this is our current compromise! Just as a reminder, the calendar is moderated, so publication is also subject to our discretion.
Questions, comments, suggestions about the website? Please contact the web editor, Evan Pricco by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are grateful for everyone's interest and enthusiasm (art is totally awesome!), but please understand that not everything submitted will be published, and that we cannot always personally respond to every inquiry or submission. Stay cool.
