SOBER. is an interdisciplinary art magazine. We like triple-flavoured ice cream, we welcome the uncategorised, and we love the unpredictable.
SOBER. sees the concept of the interdisciplinary as a marriage of different practices and thought-processes that when combined, produce new and interesting facets to concepts. We think that art is filled with multiplicities, and that multiplicity must be multi-fold in practice as it is physically, emotionally and mentally. But we also aim to let our artists define ‘interdisciplinary’ in their own way too, as we understand that the ‘interdisciplinary’ is an evolving concept of making and thinking, and we’re looking to learn from others that we feature. The work within SOBER. magazine does not stand alone in practice or genre, rather it attempts to defy category.
We accept work that embodies two or more of the following (and anything else you can think of): sculpture, illustration, photography, film, gifs, graphic design, drawing, fine art, poetry, short prose or flash fiction, non-fiction, essays, sound poetry, and music.
Submissions Accepted: April 1 2020 – June 1 2020
SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW OPEN. We have no theme this time around, so go bloody wild.
Please submit no more than 3 pieces of work. We accept jpegs, gifs, word documents, PDFs and mp3s. If you’re submitting videos or films to us, please send them as a link from either Youtube or Vimeo.
Send visual art in the highest possible resolution.
Please put your name, the title of the piece, and place SOBER. SUBMISSION in your email subject, like so: YOUR NAME // TITLE OF PIECE // SOBER. SUBMISSION
Please also send a short biography (no more than 100 words) along with your work in the body of the email, this can include places you’ve previously been published in, where you’re from, what you do.
Simultaneous submissions are considered, but you MUST notify us if your work is accepted elsewhere first.
Send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Unfortunately we are unable to pay contributors for the time being as SOBER. is still a new and ever-developing zine. We have plans as we expand to change this someday, but for now know that as a contributor we will do our best to network and share your work beyond SOBER. and endeavour to get you seen and heard.
We reserve first publication rights for 30 days after issue publication. This means that your work is still yours, but you can’t have it reprinted anywhere else until those 30 days have passed. After that, you are free to submit the same work elsewhere, but please acknowledge us if you do reprint your work in another magazine or platform.
We look forward to checking your work out.
