Call For Art | Six Year Anniversary Issue 


We are thrilled to announce the call for entries for Create! Magazine’s Sixth Anniversary Print Edition 2022, issue #35.


Originally founded in 2013 as Fresh Paint Magazine, the publication rebranded to Create! Magazine in 2016 in order to showcase the incredible talent of emerging artists in the contemporary arts working across a variety of media. Since then, we’ve highlighted thousands of artists from across the globe, sharing not only what they create, but also the meaning, inspiration, and stories behind what they do.


We invite you to join our celebration and be part of this landmark issue marking six years dedicated to our mission of supporting emerging artists. The artists selected to have their work featured will earn a coveted placement in our print and digital issue and will be promoted to our global community of 200,000+ artists, curators, collectors, art world professionals, and art lovers.


Our magazine has been featured by leading media outlets including Colossal, Apartment Therapy, and The Jealous Curator, among others. Over the years, we have partnered with global art fairs including Art Miami, Moniker, Affordable Art Fair, and Superfine, and collaborated with brands such as Minted.


Print issues are available in our online shop, through Amazon, and at select independent bookstores worldwide.
