If Beautiful Bizarre Magazine accepts my work, when will it feature in the publication and in what format?

Firstly, congratulations on having your work accepted! There is no specific time frame re when your work will feature in the magazine and whether this feature will be a full editorial or a single piece in our “artists on the rise” section. Artists for each issue are chosen based on the tone of each particular issue and the diversity and spread of mediums and artists styles. Beautiful Bizarre Magazine is a quarterly publication, and planning for each issue begins months in advance – therefore it may take a number of issues before your work is selected for inclusion.  However in the meantime your work will be shared via our social media and you will remain on our file to consider for each upcoming issue. But don’t worry we have not forgotten you, and will contact you directly when your work fits with a particular issue.

How do you choose the work/artists you include in the magazine?

We start by choosing the art we love most and then what we believe our audience would like to see.  We also consider the overall tone of each issue and strive to achieve a good cross section of styles and mediums.

Beautiful Bizarre Magazine features artists from around the world and has a truly global audience. However, as Beautiful Bizarre Magazine was born in Australia, we always include at least one Australian featured artist in each issue.  If you are an artist living and working in Australia we would love to see your work, see our Submission Guidelines re how to submit.

I own a gallery or sell a unique product, what advertising options do you offer?

Beautiful Bizarre Magazine welcomes advertising inquiries.
