We strive to promote creative photographers of all styles, themes and techniques. We do this by featuring one of the artist’s photographic projects, series, books or whatever you might want to call a series of photos linked together in a thematic. Some authors are defined with their technique, and some are completely flexible, enabling us to have freedom in apparent restrictions to make our magazine recognizable, clear and pleasing to the eye.

We want to emphasize how special each selected project is because of our diverse editorial staff. The editor has a certain freedom in the choice of the author, which gives hers/his stamp to each piece of BLUR. In addition to the occasional changes of editorial structure, which always keeps BLUR fresh and contemporary, we are also flexible when it comes to the introduction of entirely new columns and the retirements of the old ones, which you will notice by browsing through our archive. As with the rest of the BLUR philosophy, the only way to maintain a high level of quality is to keep changing to better understand photography itself.

Submit your project

If you’d like to be featured in BLUR magazine with one of your projects, you can submit up to 20 of your best photos in the series. If that’s not enough because of the specifics of your project and you have more photos you want us to look at, share your project via Dropbox, Google Drive or any other service via the Project URL field in the form below.

A “Project” is considered to be any set of photos that are of thematic nature, such as a collection of nude portraits, a collection of eerie landscape imagery, or a photographic documentation of a carnival in Rio. The form has a category select input, so you can better inform our editors about the nature of your project.

RESOLUTION | all photos are published in 72 dpi, 1500 pixels at the photo’s longest side, without watermarks and frames. COLOR PROFILE | photos must be in RGB. We never change the color profile and do not process incoming images. We publish them just as we have received them from you. PHOTO FORMAT | all photos must be JPEG or PNG encoded.

A CONDITION for publication of any author are two photos of our choice delivered in high resolution (300 dpi / approx. 50 cm), which we will request via e-mail. The reason for this requirement is that we need high-resolution material in the production of promotional tools of BLUR magazine (YouTube videos, high-resolution magazine covers for advertising, high-resolution cover prints on events and exhibitions, etc.). Also, we’re in the process of preparation of the BLUR book, a book of all authors published in BLUR in a certain period. It is important to point out that none of those photos will ever be used without attribution (clearly showing the names of the authors) and are never passed on to a third party.

BLUR is a magazine which respects the authors, their creativity and their copyright as important aspects in our promotion of photographic art. The author does not in any way release or give up their copyright by publication in BLUR magazine, neither will their photos be used for any other purpose except for publication in the magazine and the promotional materials related to the magazine (YouTube clips, Facebook announcements, etc.). Any other possible use of the material is first discussed with the author on a case-by-case basis, and is subject to the author’s prior written approval.

Other than being published in our PDF magazine, some photos might appear as BLUR promotional material on our Facebook page, in our promotional YouTube videos, in our online digital previews (ISSU) and other similar channels. Some photos may be re-used for special or print editions. All such use is directed solely to advertise BLUR magazine and reach wider audiences for your art. Additionally, your photo never appears without your artist information (except sometimes in the YouTube video due to production/editing reasons).
