Call for Artists: Mood Ring

By February 09, 2021

Burnaway welcomes submissions from Atlanta-based artists to our artist column, Mood Ring, for Spring and Summer 2021.

The format of Mood Ring is meant to be free flowing, adaptable to a variety of artist projects, but specific to the digital realm. Works can be small studies related to a larger developing project, new works that can be adapted for online publishing, or pieces of longform writing by artists about an area of research or interest. Three artists will be selected to work closely with Burnaway’s Editorial team to develop their Mood Ring project over the course of the Spring. The final projects will be published online in Burnaway Magazine and promoted throughout our social media platforms.

Selected Artists will receive a $400 stipend for their work.
