We’re looking for the most unique, innovative and diverse interpretations of this theme to be published in print, and online.

  • Original artistic works
  • Diverse interpretations on our theme that challenges us to see the botanical world around us in a new way
  • Existing projects/works only. This is not a call for commissions.

As always, we aim to make the submissions process accessible – if you are experiencing financial hardship and can not meet these fee/ entry requirements, but have work that our team needs to consider – drop us a line, HERE. Accommodations can easily be made.

Submitting to PhotoED Magazine does not transfer any rights of ownership – the photographer retains full rights. We do not ask for exclusivity and the photographer is free to submit the image to any other publication/ project or exhibition. The owner of the photograph(s) allows us the rights to publish and promote their work with credit, via our print and digital platforms. By submitting, the photographer acknowledges that they have full rights to the images and has obtained proper releases where warranted.

Canada based artists selected for the PRINT publication are subject to receive additional printed copies of the publication, and an Artist Honorarium to be determined at the time of publishing, based on page count allocation of the featured work.
