We are now accepting submissions for Issue Sixteen. The last day to submit is June 30th, 2019.
Submission Guidelines: All images must be shot on color film. Email us up to 12 images or a link to your website. Please include links directly to bodies of work / images that are both film and color. Email us at email@example.com. Please write “Issue Sixteen Submission” in the subject line.
Please note, due to the cost of printing color and the amount of contributors for each issue (approximately 20) we unable to give a free zine to all those included. Charging a submission fee upfront would allow us to give contributors copies later, but we are dedicated keeping this call free, open, and available to all. We do offer a discount as close to our printing costs as possible.
Incandescent was dreamt up in 2011 at a sunny picnic table in Portland, Oregon by three friends tired of paying submission fees, and in love with shooting color film. Though we know there are great photos out there of all kinds we decided that day in the backyard to feature color analog photography in this zine. This publication was born out of a love of photography and was never intended to make money. Everyone who works on it has volunteered their time to make it possible. Over the years Incandescent has been based out of an attic, a basement, a car, and a travel trailer, it is a shoestring project, but on that we feel has had beautiful results. Our goal has always been to be able to show new photography at an affordable price without asking for submission fees. So far we have had the honor of sharing the work of over 300 photographers from almost 50 countries around the world.
