How To Submit

How it works:

– Conté’s Print edition, released 3 times a year will have a theme which artists will submit under, themes are announced 1 month prior to the magazine being released, you just need to keep your ear to the ground to know what the theme,criteria and what the submission deadline is.
– The artists featured on the Print and Digital Platform are different artists, but if you have been featured on the digital platform, you are most welcome to submit to the print edition of the Magazine if you qualify according to the requirements and criteria.
– Every day on both our digital platform and on our instagram we will feature 1 new/fresh African contributing artist, meaning that every single day you will see more and more of Africa’s greatest creatives….EXCITING RIGHT?.. Yes.. we know!!!!!
