grade Artwork Submission Guidelines


What We Like:

We love passionate, emerging artists eager to share their work with the world.

Artwork needn’t be too literal. We encourage artwork that relates to common literary themes; however, Pif Magazine is an equal opportunity artwork publisher, so feel free to submit anything that encourages discussion and contemplation.

Artwork that tells a story, revealing the similarity between writing and art-making while inspiring connections between both worlds.

How to Submit Art to Pif Magazine:

Email artwork (limit of 5 pieces per month), a brief artist statement (200 words or less), and a short description of the submitted artwork (medium, title, and any additional information) to

How Your Art Will Be Used:

Submitted artwork will be considered, selected, and paired with monthly literary selections to enhance the overall reading experience. Selections will be based on whether submitted artwork can stand alone in addition to strengthening readers’ connection to selected literary submissions.  We may choose to use a single piece of artwork or we may desire to do a fuller artist interview.  If selected, our editors will discuss which direction we’re considering as we move forward.


  • Artwork must be in JPEG, GIF or PNG digital format.
  • Photos MUST be at least 2,000 pixels wide.
  • All mediums will be considered.
  • Artwork must include name of artist, title of artwork, and medium of artwork in order to be eligible for consideration.
