Call to Artists | Sound & Vision

Sound & Vision, 2022

Mark Watkins, Staffordshire, UK


/DRI:M/SPACE is hosting an Open Call for collage art for the second issue of the magazine which will be available as a PRINT publication and DIGIMAG. Collagists are challenged to enter works that fit the brief:

Sound & Vision

From the Co-Curator, Mark Watkins:

The ‘cut up’ writing technique made famous by author William S. Burroughs inspired the likes of David Bowie, Kurt Cobain and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke - cutting out sentences, phrases and words and rearranging them to create lyrics for poetry and songs. Lyrical collage!

For this callout:

Choose a favourite song. Select one line from the lyrics and let that be the inspiration for a collage.

Include the chosen lyric with your submission.

So dust off your vinyl or plug in the iPod but be sure to turn up the volume!


The Deets

All open call entries require a non-refundable submission fee >

$5 for 1 entry, $10 for 2+ entries.

All participants will receive a copy of the DIGIMAG (normally $10.99!), the same stunning publication as the print edition in a responsive digital flip-book format.

This non-refundable submission fee goes towards printing costs, design, shipping supplies, and hosting fees.

*/DRI:M/SPACE does not want to deter anyone from participating due to the submission fee! Please email and we can work it out.

Deadline to Apply > May 8, 2023

Format > Provide high-res images @300dpi minimum, which is suitable for soft & hard-copy publications. Once you pay the submission fee an email will be sent to you with instructions on how to submit your image.

Share > On Instagram using the hashtag #drimspacesoundandvision - let's inspire each other with our entries!


Selected artists will be notified via email.

Personal invites will be extended to a selection of open call winners to collaborate on Issue 03 and, in return for their participation, will receive a double-page artist spread with bio/statement.

One collagist will be chosen to grace the cover of Issue 02 and will be the next co-curator for /DRI:M/SPACE Issue 03.
