Only invited artists can submit artwork for publication in Art Ideal Magazine.

Image size: Please make sure that the total of your images doesn't exceed 25MB when uploading through the form. If we need a larger image, we will be in touch with you to request it.

We highly recommend a short personal statement, in first person, for example, "My work is about... I am inspired by... Art is..."   We have found that each page becomes more interesting to the reader when you reveal more about the person behind the artwork. Readers are captivated by bold statements that may further engage their imagination and thinking. Please no text over 160 words.

We will ask you to provide a short biography text. Our professional literary editor will see over the text and make sure it reads perfectly in English. If necessary, the text will be edited to fit the space.

Why should I pay to publish?

Artists today are expected to manage their creativity as a business. Paradoxically the more money you earn from artmaking, the more time you gain to make art!  The outdated idea that artists should not pay for promotion is unproductive in the competitive world we live today.

At Circle, as we have proven with some 25 back issues of our magazines, our team of experts works hard and smart to see each publication project successfully from conception to production. Our magazine will provide a solid marketing tool for the artist who aims at boosting their resume and wishes to promote their career.

Why choose to publish in Art IDEAL?

Art IDEAL is the newest title in a series of established and respected publications by Circle Foundation. It will provide a valuable addition to the artist's resume as it is a curated selection of artists. It will provide an excellent opportunity for exposure as we circulate the magazine widely to an international audience. It is a career-booster for the professional artist who by increasing their list of estimable publications can also increase the market value of their works.
