E-magazine

Spotlight Magazine is fully available online to read page-by-page online through our website, Isssuu.com and our dedicated newsletter, with an overall projected reach of about 75,000 readers per issue. The artist's website is readily visible so interested readers can visit to discover more about each artist.

Printed Magazine

Spotlight Magazine is printed with high-quality full-color 115gram paper and a full-color cover of 200gram, glossy cover at 21.0 x 29.7 cm or 8.3 x 11.7 in. The paper magazine can be ordered directly through our website. Published artists will be provided with an "order print copies" link which they can add to their website. 1000 print copies are available in the first edition of each issue.

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 submitting a statement written in first person, which really lets the artist's voice come through.

Distribution

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

Copyrights

The published artist keeps 100% copyright of their images but allows Circle Foundation 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 that your art appears includes your name as well as the name of the publication.

Publication Quality

From design to publication, Spotlight Magazine is a premium quality magazine. We put our expertise in curating, designing and producing a publication that not only looks flawless in terms of design but which -- most importantly, showcases remarkable and most noteworthy contemporary visual artists bound together page-by-page to tell the story of what art looks like today.

Why should I pay to publish?

Publication requires a small fee per page because a team of experts works full time to get this project out.  This is a very well-research, professional and elegant magazine. This is a marketing/career/advertising project for the active artist who wishes to gain new audiences, expand their resume and become part of a professional and noteworthy milieu.

It is a very high-quality print. It is distributed to our list of over 75,000 art professionals, a list that has taken many years to create, that is targeted and keeps evolving.

Will I sell work through Spotlight Magazine?

Several works have been sold through our magazine and several artists have been contacted by galleries. But we cannot promise you that you will sell your work. The primary purpose of the magazine is to promote your work and what it will for certain provide you is an important addition to your resume, a very professional way to share/showcase your work to professionals and it will directly increase the value of your works.

How large should I submit my images on the form?

All your 6 images together should not be more that 25MB.  Generally speaking, the image should be at least 2500 pixels in the small dimension. If we have any issues and need a larger image we will ask you.

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.
