Port City Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Submissions closed for 2018 Edition

Submissions for the 2018 edition have closed. Judges will begin reviewing works immediately. Artists should expect an email notification by the end of Fall 2017 quarter.

Port City Review is SCAD's annual student arts journal. The book is unique because it's judged, curated and designed by students. The 2018 edition will be the sixth edition of the journal. An exhibition of accepted works will be held in Spring 2018. The deadline to submit is 11:30 p.m. Sunday, October 15, 2017.

GALLERY SHOW: Certain pieces selected for publication may be invited to be displayed at an exhibition set for March 23 to April 8, 2017, at Alexander Hall Gallery. Students may sell their works at this exhibition.

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.
