Participate In Our Programs
We're always on the lookout for teens to feature in our projects. Let us know if you or someone you know would be a good fit! Please note that unless otherwise stated, all opportunities are for teens (ages 13-19) of color only.
Publication Opportunity: "You"
Submissions for our newest project, a zine curated for and by teen artists of color, are now open. The theme of our debut issue will be “You” - feel free to interpret that in any way that you’d like.
The creator of the best submission, as judged by our team, will win a prize of $100.
Applications are open to teens from the greater Seattle area. Submissions can be of any medium: poetry, playwriting, photography, illustrations, etc.
Visual artists: Please submit a one- or two-page spread that is 8.5 by 5.5 inches. Writers: Please format your writing on pages that are 8.5 by 5.5 inches in size. All submissions can be either landscape or portrait orientation. You can find examples of submissions here.
You can submit as many times as you would like, and there is an option to submit anonymously as well. All work must be original.
We are accepting rolling submissions. Contributors will receive a free copy of the zine. Submit here.
Online Content: Featured Teen Artist of Color
Through this project, teens of color can have their artistic journey and artwork featured on our web-series/social media and blog. Interviewees (as well as any associated arts organizations) may receive publicity on our YouTube, blog, and social media channels.
