-- Editors


The Normal School seeks original fine art, digital art, and photography to feature in our online magazine. Our goal is to celebrate visual artists and provide a space for them to get some exposure. We especially encourage submissions from Black and Indigenous artists, artists of color, artists with disabilities, artists from LGBTQIA+ communities, and voices that have been historically under-represented and minoritized in the art world.

Please limit the number of submissions to 3 maximum


- images should be “landscape” only

- image width should be between 1500 and 2500 pixels

- File sizes should be limited to 20 MB (but 1.5 MB or less

will have the best quality)

- Please make sure the file type for images is .jpg, .gif,

or .png only 

- There is a 120 megapixel (MP) limit on resolution 

- Lastly, please note that images posted on the Normal School magazine are downloadable. We cannot provide a watermark to protect against this, but we’re happy to use one provided by the artist.
