UPPERCASE Surface Pattern Design Guide
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
The UPPERCASE Surface Pattern Design Guide will feature the best in established and up-and-coming surface pattern designers. By being part of the guide, your work will be exposed to an engaged and active readership of art and design buyers, potential clients, collaborators and consumers. This spring issue of UPPERCASE will be distributed free of charge to media at Surtex, the famed surface pattern licensing show this May in New York City. It will also be made readily available as a free pdf download available online. (Last year's Stationery Guide has had over 84,000 impressions via Issuu.)
DEADLINE WAS FEBRUARY 15, 2014
WE RECEIVED NEARLY 300 SUBMISSIONS! THANK YOU.

The theme of issue #20 is loosely inspired by "broadcasting". In our interpretation, we define it as the ability to get ideas to the masses through means of communication such as radio, television, social media, posters and craftivism.
I thought it would be fun to use the technology that is literally at our fingertips to invite our readers to broadcast a bit about yourselves. Using Instagram video, share a little tour of your creative place and post it to @uppercasemag #mycreativeplace. Is your creative place a sunlit studio (I'm so lucky!) or is it a comfy corner of the couch? Is it a nice collection of curios and art supplies that defines your creative place or are you most creative when outside for a walk? Whatever or wherever it is, share #mycreativeplace with us!

The images might be used in posts on the UPPERCASE journal about The Work-in-Progress Society (credited and linked to its Flickr member) and will be considered for print publication in the magazine. Should your image be selected for publication, you will be contacted for additional information and higher resolution files if necessary.
For subscribers of UPPERCASE magazine only. We will compile the best for publication in the magazine and feature some on our blog. We accept submissions on an ongoing basis, though only three are published per issue. If we receive extras, we will post them on the blog. Submit here.
UPPERCASE magazine is a richly visual magazine featuring great illustration, photography and intelligent writing. If you are interested in contributing, please contact us with sample of your work.
