Submissions Open for 2019 Edition
Port City Review is SCAD's annual student arts journal. The book is unique because it's judged, curated and designed by students. The 2019 edition will be the seventh edition of the journal. An exhibition of accepted works will be held in Spring 2019. The deadline to submit is 11:59 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2, 2018. Students are encouraged to submit early as the site often becomes overwhelmed in the hour or two before the deadline.
GALLERY SHOW: Certain pieces selected for publication may be invited to be displayed at an exhibition at Alexander Hall Gallery. Students may sell their works at this exhibition. The exhibition will run March 29 to April 14, 2019.
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.

Did you write it? Is it fiction? This is the category for you. We prefer shorter works, since Port City Review is only 125 pages, but great writing is great writing.
