Open to: BIPOC creatives under 19

Deadline: January 17th, 2020

Time: 11:59 pm PST


For it’s second issue, SALIMA is dedicating it’s pages to the thoughts, art and musings of BIPOC creatives ages 19 and under.

We encourage all parents, caretakers, and educators, to spread the word about this paid opportunity for young folks to share their art with the world and have it published.

There are no regional requirements to submit work, and the deadline is less than a month away!

In addition to the content being youth generated, the theme for this issue is UNPLUGGING. The word “unplug” is defined: to disconnect an electrical device; remove an obstacle or blockage; to relax by disengaging from normal activities, but our hope is that folks will explore any and all interpretations of this idea.

What imagery comes to mind when you consider this theme? How does it make you feel? What creations will it inspire? The possibilities are endless! We can’t wait to review the submissions, and learn from and invest in the younger generation of BIPOC artists, thinkers, and creators.

We are asking for visual art submissions of all kinds, music recommendations, reviews, advice queries, short stories, essays, and answers for our new Question Section.

We are excited to uplift intergenerational stories and challenge societal norms together!

Spread the word far and wide, and feel free to email with any questions.

**Submissions will be accepted until Friday, January 17th, 2021 at 11:59pm.**
