What is The Journal Of Grievances?

The Journal Of Grievances started as a quarterly, themed open call, resulting in a printed publication. The journal is now a biannual publication, published in summer and winter.

The journal serves as a unique platform for independent photographers of all experience levels to showcase their work alongside professional and renowned photographers. The publication, nostalgic in its character, compiles work that is meant to explore lurking feelings and varying perspectives, creating a space for imagery dialogue where the artists can manifest emotions creatively and keep a record in hope for guidance and future reference.

Is there a submission fee?

Yes. There is a submission fee of $10. Submission fee goes towards production and running costs of our biannual publication, we don’t take a profit, it’s all to build community and share your work. 

How many images can I submit?

For Volume 4, we are considering bodies of work as a whole (photography series). You can pay for as many submissions as you want. Keep in mind that one submission equals one series of minimum 8 and 10 photographs max- submissions must be presented as a whole series. No matter how many submissions you present, only one series per artist will be chosen.

What is the deadline?

The extended deadline is April 20th midnight EST.

How is the work selected?

We will select submissions based on the works submitted, the interpretation of the theme and how well submissions follow the brief. No outside factors will be taken into consideration when assessing the work, our decision-making process is unbiased. Submissions for this new edition will be judged as a series. Work will not be chosen off stand-alone photographs, but as a strong body of photographs that tell a well-developed story.
How many pieces of my submitted work will be used?

Antics Publications is collaborating with Image Threads for this edition of the journal, and the two will hold one-on-one sessions with each selected artist to review works submitted. The selection can vary from 8 to 12 pieces.

How will I find out if my work is selected?

We will email selected artists a week after submissions are closed. That will be followed by a public announcement on our social media.

What are the benefits of my work being selected? Do I get a free copy of The Journal Of Grievances if my work is selected?

Benefits for the selected artist will vary with each open call. Please make sure to read all the information about our current open call here. More detailed information about benefits will be shared with selected artists. For this open call, artists will receive a special printed copy of their work only.

Is my work going to be modified or edited in any form?

Your work won't be modified in any form for the printed product other than pre-printing adjustments. Important information related to image handling will be shared with selected artists. For digital content, your work may be cropped to meet the different platforms’ requirements and layouts.

Do the photographs that I submit have to be my own original work?

YES! Only original work created/taken by the applicant must be submitted. Any other form of work, including modifications or ownership of someone else's work will not be taken into consideration.

What are the copyrights?

Artists keep 100% of their works’ rights. You are giving Antics Publications the right to print your photographs along with your name, and use those photographs for any promotional purposes or for online promotion on various platforms, but you always keep the rights to your work.
