    I have images I would like to submit from a recent 4 x 5 project. No website can I still submit?

  2. If I want to put images into e-mail, what size must they be?

  3. Sarah says:

    I know this is too late but are you still taking submissions?

    • Incandescent says:

      We are always looking for submissions. Incandescent is bi-annual so we have a summer and winter deadline for upcoming issues. However, you can submit at anytime and we will keep your submission on file for the next issue.

  4. If the photos are to big to all fit in one email, would it be okay to send the 12 photos over two emails?

  6. Hello!Please tell me,for June 15th of ’13 year?

  7. STS says:

    what about monochrome “sepia” toned photographs – of course film, but not conventional one, it is “self-made” film ?

  8. Sara says:

    Should the submitted images belong to a single series/body of work?

  9. patricia says:

    is there actually a topic for the forth issue?

    • Incandescent says:

      There is no topic. Once we have chosen images we look for common themes within the work to inspire the title and intro. However there is no set subject – we just want to see your favorite color film images.

  10. Thank you for viewing my work shot on film. Xg

  11. Alex says:

    If I submit and get chosen will I receive a free copy?

  13. George says:

    Can I just put links of my photos on flickr in submission e-mail?

  14. Vincent Carney says:

    What size should the files be for submissions?

  15. Are we able to not only submit photos but projects? (i.e. photo collections or photo books?)

    • Incandescent says:

      Hi Michael,

      If you would like to send us a link to a project, or email us images from a project, we are happy to look at them. We can’t promise to use all the images in one project, but we can do often include several images from a series, and we can include the series/project title with the image title if included in the publication.

  16. Sam says:

    Hi I have a couple files that are comprised of a two images because they were taken within a couple seconds of each other (one photo on top and one on the bottom), would that file be counted as one picture or two?

  17. Deanna says:

    Hi Incandescent

    Perhaps an amateur question, but do you have specific criteria for what qualifies as an “emerging artist”. I consider myself to be emerging, as I am only a year out of graduate school and am not widely exhibited. This being said, I do have representation.

    Thanks for the clarification!

    • Incandescent says:

      Hi Deanna,

      No we do not have any specific criteria for what qualifies an emerging artist. It can be a challenging to find opportunities to get work out to the world without submission fees or other costs – especially when starting out – Incandescent here to make it a little less difficult.

  18. hi there.
    My name is Lindsey and I mostly take Polaroids and stereo photography. I don’t know if my images are sharp enough for an issue but this is where I post my public photography. Better quality scans and other images available upon request. Thank you for looking over my lifestyle and what I’m up to. Good luck with the next issue.

  19. Ivette says:

    Can I submit work that I shot many years ago?

  20. Hello. We are Ukrainian duo Krolikowski Art, and we would like to send you the link on the website with analog photographs ( we make only film photography). But there is sometimes (really rarely) we post b/w photos; it’s ok or we have to choose up to 12 images and send it?

  21. Leonor says:

    Hi! I sent you an email with the link to my Flickr page, do I need to send the 12 pictures by mail too or you’ll check the link?

  22. Hello, is it possible to make more than one submission? Also are you open to colour Polaroid and Polaroid transfer processes

    • Incandescent says:

      Hello Virginia,
      Yes, if you have multiple projects you would like to submit you can send us more than one submission. We do accept all color film submissions, including polaroid film.

  23. Here is my submission.
