Our mission is to be a reference on top-quality artwork. The rules here described must be followed by anyone who wishes to send us their work, in order to avoid further problems.
One of the main ideas behind Zupi, since its creation, is to promote and instigate art. One of our priorities has always been to open space for anyone to send us their artistic and experimental works.
That means we want your work. We’re fully interested on whatever you do. You may work with illustration, photography, graphic art, design, 3D, animation, motion design, typography, painting, graffiti, film, fashion etc. It doesn’t matter what, it only matters how, since we give preference to creative and experimental works.
Not everyone will make it to the magazine, since we only have few pages available to show a lot of talent. That’s also because we will stick to our quality control, no matter what. But if your work isn’t featured on the next issue, don’t give up, give more: send us other works, join the Fame section and you might be featured on our virtual magazine cover. We’ll always give you chances to show your ideas.
