We welcome submissions to be considered for publication in Ucs.
The broadsheet tend to be thematic and led by the creative writing that we publish alongside the images. It maybe that your work will not fit with a particular issue, but be assured that your work would be held for re-consideration for a future edition. We would contact you for future issues if selected.
For submissions we require:
Up to five low-res images
A short description of your work
A brief, recent biography
Your contact details
Please be aware that the newspaper is an artist led project and non-profit. We are not beholden to advertising or advertorial. Ucs. is self-funded by the contributors to the newspaper and we ask that all featured artists contribute to the cost of the publication. We simply divide the cost of production between the artists in each issue. At time of print this works out at £190.00 per person. This fee covers the publication of your work in the paper, web presence and national distribution to our nations best galleries and 50-100 copies for each artist to distribute locally.
Due to the format of the paper an image chosen for the front cover will be cropped to fit, agreeing to have your image on the front cover means agreeing to these terms. After we have curated the submissions and developed an initial design, we will request your high resolution files of the selected images and final copy, your contact details and payment will be requested.
You must also please take into consideration that the images are printed on newsprint and so the quality is unique and not all colours reproduce accurately. We feel that the quality has its own unique feel.
Uncertain States offers a platform for both writers and photographers. We are very appreciative of the text supplied enabling discourse on photography. Submitted text, or proposals of stories and dialogue by creative writers are welcomed.
If you are a creative writer and would like to offer any discourse on photography please submit a draft or proposal for publication at firstname.lastname@example.org
