what you need to know:
undr_scr review accepts submissions from youth artists between ages of 14 and 21 for regular submissions. We also raise money for our operations, workshops, and supplies by accepting adult feature artist submissions at a rate of $5 per submission (up to 3 pieces).
Two Artists of the Month – one adult artist and one youth artist – are chosen as part of our online journal issue.
Our Artist of the Month feature will include the artist’s photo and bio in addition to their submission. A special release form will be provided to any artist selected as the Feature. Artists who submit work will be contacted within 60 days of their submission. Please be patient as we carefully and intently read each submission.
Tips to Writing a Bio
A bio is a brief paragraph about who you are, and what you’re about. Here are a few websites that give good examples of how to craft words about yourself. Try not to use a template, they’re tempting, but they don’t allow you to add much of your personality. We want to know who you are!
