“Thank you very much! The magazine is wonderful and I would like to keep in touch for future participations.”

- Daniela Danova

“I thoroughly enjoy this magazine of contemporary international art. I have shown in it once and the experience is like entering into a competitive show. As with gallery or museum shows the artist is invited to send in work to be considered by a particular art curator. The application includes a small fee per work entered which clearly is for processing and not for profit. This makes the opportunity not only accessible financially but also enables them to combine excellent works that have a true feel of being a collection rather than a portfolio of whose who on the latest scene.”
