Page Design

Well-researched and optimally designed, Spotlight Magazine has a classy, minimal aesthetic. The emphasis is on the image, which is accompanied by a museum-type label description and a short artist statement. We recommend the artist submit a statement written in first person, that really enables their voice and personality to come through.


Spotlight Magazine is distributed largely online, reaching thousands of readers. Each issue is published on our website as well as, one of the most popular online publication platforms. We share and promote the magazine through email and social media and we invite each artist to also share the magazine via email, on the website and social profiles.


The published artist keeps 100% copyright of their images but allows us to print and reproduce their material in the magazine that may be distributed for free or at a cost. The images in each magazine are protected in three significant ways: a. The e-magazine pdf is protected and not available for download. b. The e-magazine pdf is not printable or reproducible quality. c. Every page where your art appears includes your name as well as the name of the publication.

About the artist statement. 

 Each page contains a very short text (max. 100 words). We highly recommend a short personal statement, in first person, for example, "My work is about... I am inspired by... Art is..."  We believe that your page becomes extra interesting with a text that will captivate the reader by allowing to hear your voice and adding a bit more insight as to who the person is behind the art or information about what the art is about.
