What We're Looking For
This contest calls for artwork on urban fantasy.
We seek work that speaks to the mission of Dante’s Heart. Dante's Heart is
an online venue looking for creative work that explores how myth and fairy tale
define and are defined by the human experience(s). We want to celebrate the
shock, wonder, bewilderment, suffering, and enchantment of myth, of the
fantastic; we want to hear about rivers running with wine and ghosts jumping the
Mississippi on motorcycles. We're concerned with the neglect of myth, with the
blindness of a culture determined by myths it hasn't thought about; we demand
(beg, entreat, scream) that myths be thought about, made and remade, handled
with a delicate & angry/sad/ desperate/joyous exuberance.
All media are welcome; submissions will be received and winning entries will be
published in digital form.
Submit art by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
