FAQ’s

Who can submit to Incandescent?

All emerging photographers! Incandescent strives to create a venue in which to share the work of artists who may not otherwise be shown.

What is a zine? Why don’t you call Incandescent a photo book?

Zines are a noncommercial magazine, often homemade, and devoted to a specialized subject matter. They are made out of passion, not for profit. Incandescent may look like a photo book but the intent is that of a zine.

Is Incandescent a digital zine or is it printed?

Incandescent is a printed zine. This blog is for information and promotional purposes only. Zine content will not be viewable here.

Do the submitted images have to be taken with film? Do they need to be color?

Yes. Incandescent is a color film zine. There are lots of great black and white or digital pics out there but we unfortunately cannot use them.

When will Incandescent be released?

Incandescent is a bi-annual publication. Typically issues are released January and July of each year.

If my photos are accepted do I get a free zine?

No.  We very much wish that we could give each contributor a free copy but it is impossible on our budget.  Incandescent  does offer a discount to the included photographers of each issue and the cover artist receives a free zine.

Who started Incandescent?

Incandescent was started by Michael Cardiello, Marissa Csanyi, and Helen Jones. It is now run by Helen and Marissa.

      Hi Joel,
      No, we receive around 200 submissions per issue and usually include about 15 to 20 photographers per issue. We encourage people to submit again if they do not hear bak the first time. Thanks for your interest in Incandescent.
