Port City Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Submissions Open for 2020

Port City Review is SCAD's annual student arts journal. The book is unique because it's judged, curated and designed by students. Submissions are currently being accepted for the 2020 edition, which will be SCAD's eighth edition of Port City Review.

WHAT CAN YOU SUBMIT: You may submit as many entries to as many categories as you'd like, but please be reasonable. We generally recommend no more than five entries per student per category. You may submit to a category outside. You may submit work produced at any time in your artistic career, and it is acceptable to submit work that was produced for a class, though we ask that you refrain from submitting work that was heavily influenced or assisted by a faculty member. 

GALLERY SHOW: Certain pieces selected for publication will be invited to be displayed at an exhibition at Alexander Hall Gallery. Students may sell their works at this  exhibition. The exhibition date will be announced at a later date.

There are several categories from which to choose; please choose  the correct category for the type of work you want to submit.  Submissions will only be considered from students enrolled at the time of submission. 

When submitting to any category, please remove your name from the actual submission file (if possible), as to keep the judging process completely blind. Your name and other identifying details on your submission application will be withheld from the judges. 

Visual submissions should be 300 DPI or higher, and saved as JPEG, PDF or PNG files. Please do not submit TIFF or ZIP files as these files are not supported and may not be judged. Written submission submissions should be saved as Doc or DocX files (no PDFs, please). There is no word limit on submissions, but submissions will be edited for length for publication in the printed journal.

For audio submissions, MP3 and WAV files are accepted, and there is no time limit. For video and animation submissions, MOV, MP4 and AVI files are accepted, and there is no time limit.

Certain works deemed pornographic, violent or otherwise unacceptable for publication, will not be considered by the jury. Files submitted in unreadable file formats will be rejected from the competition.

For further information or if you have any questions, email acrisp@scad.edu.
