Submissions

We are always interested in sharing new work, so if you would like to be featured on our platforms then we would love to hear from you.

Tagging your work with @dopeblackart or #dopeblackart is one way to get on our radar. The other way is by submitting your work using the form on this page.

Our open submissions process is very competitive because we receive a high volume of qualified applicants but have limited spaces. Unfortunately this means that many great pieces of work don’t get to feature on our platform.

Please complete the form below to submit your work. Good luck with your submission and we'll be in touch if you are successful. If you don't hear from us then it means your submission was unsuccessful.

For prioritised feature posts please visit the advertising page and we'll respond within 3-5 business days.

REQUIREMENTS

Meeting these requirements will increase the chance of your advert being approved. However a key deciding factor is whether it meets our artistic taste and as you know, taste is subjective, so this element is something you cannot influence unfortunately.
  • A high resolution image or video with a width of at least 1080 pixels.
  • Authentic art that you’ve created or have the right to use.
  • Our preferred styles of art include but are not limited to: drawing, painting, prints (digital and printed), mixed media (including 3D and wall-hung pieces), video art (including moving image, projected work and digital installations).
  • Avoid distracting text and huge watermarks.
  • If you’re submitting a photograph of your artwork then please avoid shadows and messy framing, by making sure that the piece is level against the wall. Whenever possible, you should fill the frame with your work, trying not to show any background. If a background is essential then frame the piece against a neutral color like white.
  • Adhere to Instagrams guidelines.
