Renaissance: the rebirth of a new era where old mixes with new to create something fresh and unique.
Life is constantly evolving, bringing us through highs and lows and challenging us to grow into each new chapter of our stories. Embracing the new beginnings while staying true to yourself is a balance that evokes a constant feeling of rebirth within yourself. For this zine, we’d like to hear from you through your art about how Renewing, Resetting, and Restarting have impacted your own personal growth and transformation, and allowed you to embark upon your own renaissance.

Q: I don’t have any professional photos of myself… can I send a selfie?
A: Yes, as long as the photo is in high resolution.
Q: If I submit anonymously, do I need to send you a portrait?
A: This would go against using a pseudonym (unless you want to be recognized under that name). You can always submit another photo that could replace your portrait, and make it artsy.😉
Q: Can I submit my work if I live outside of Canada?
A: Yes! The pandemic has allowed us to expand our club radius. If you like creativity, you’re in the club. Simple as that!
Q: Can I submit my work even if I was featured in the previous zine?
A: Yes, if you feel like your work is a good fit, we want to see it!
Q: I have multiple series of works that would be a good fit for this issue, can I submit more than one submission?
A: Of course! As long as you follow all the requirements mentioned above.
Q: Will I be required to do anything if I get selected?
A: Yes, we ask all the featured artists to help us with the zine promotion. We will give you a social media kit to make it easy for you.
Q: Can I submit my work anonymously?
A: Yes, but we recommend using a pseudonym. We would still need your contact information and mailing address if you're selected to be featured.
