Guidelines for Magazine Submissions


Submitted works must feature an artistic take on science or be influenced by science or the scientific method. Preferably, submitted works are related to the method of analog photography (scans from negative or print, works on photographic paper, darkroom-based experimental work, polaroids, cyanotypes, etc.). Single strong artistic positions without direct connection to analogue work will be considered for publication, too.

Optionally, works can be accompanied by an artist statement or a description of the used method. Those may be included in the magazine.


Once finalized, the printed magazine will be distributed online and through direct sales at selected locations. All publishing artists and photographers will receive an artists’ copy of the magazine free of charge and additional issues at a discounted rate.

Artist’s rights

The copyright of all images, without exception, remain with the artist. We respect artists as creators and owners of their work.

With your submission, you consent to the publication of the submitted works in the magazine. Images published in the magazine may also be presented on our social media channels and our website. If you do not wish to have your work shown there, please indicate so. We will give photo credits on all publication channels.

Selection process

Images will be selected based on unique artistic vision, a novel perspective towards the topic, and how well they fit into the overall composition of the magazine. The selection will be done by members of Kalamari Klub and IsoQuant. The jury consist of analog photographers, artists, and scientists who hold a variety of approaches (and opinions) towards photography. We are happy to be exposed to a wide diversity of styles, methods, and approaches.

We will notify you regarding the status of your submission within three weeks after the submission deadline. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us at
