Elevation DC, a weekly online magazine celebrating what’s next for the city, is looking for DC-based artists who want their work to reach an audience of passionate DC residents interested in what’s next in the city’s growth. They are holding a contest for their next masthead.

Here’s what they are looking for:

  • Art in any medium–painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, will be considered.

Though they are called Elevation DC, your work doesn’t have to depict DC. Artists who paint,draw,etc in a representative style are welcome. They do not want to see monuments and cherry blossoms. Show them a side of DC that hasn’t been seen before–or wow them with your non-representative works.

Need inspiration? Take a look at the mastheads previously published on http://elevationdcmedia.com.
