CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

SOILED – No. 8 – Onceuponascrapers

 

Who We Are

SOILED is a periodical of architectural stories that makes a mess of the politics of space. Positioned between a literary journal and design magazine, SOILED narrates a playfully sincere and seriously humorous exploration of oft-overlooked dimensions of our built environment. We believe that by intensifying the fictive and storytelling potential in architecture, we might engage a broader public in architectural ideas from discourse to action.

 

Instigation

“There is no part of our lives when we’re not fantasizing, but we prefer to relegate fantasy to children, as though it were some tomfoolery only fit for the immature minds of the young. Children do live in fantasy and reality; they move back and forth very easily in a way we no longer remember how to do.”

—Maurice Sendak

Onceuponascrapers will be a collection of illustrated architectural children’s stories akin to “picture books” that narrate contemporary ideas about architecture and the built environment. We believe that the possibilities for architectural writing for all ages might be amplified by challenging the conventions and tone of voice of “grown-up” behavior.

The protagonists of many children’s books are nonhuman characters, including animals, objects, and even buildings that enact animate agency and active voice. Young children do not question the ostensible absurdity or frivolity that most adults ascribe to such “more-than-human” ways of understanding subjectivity. In this way, the very makeup of children’s literary content prompts a heightened awareness of architecture’s magical condition—that is, the perceptual misalignments between the real and the imaginary and the vital agency of built matter. For this reason, the format of children’s stories is preordained to communicate expanded ideas about architecture.

When it comes to the intersection of architecture and children’s literature, we’re inspired by books like Crockett Johnson’s Harold and Purple Crayon, Antoinette Portis’s Not a Box, and Virginia Lee Burton’s The Little House for example. Stories like The Little House anthropomorphize buildings to render the emotion and agency of architectural matter more palpable and relatable. Stories such as Harold and the Purple Crayon are not explicitly about architecture or narrated from an architectural point of view, but rather demonstrate how the act of drawing enables the production of space and our worldly participation in it. Stories like Not a Box elevate the representation of the spatial imagination as an equal player alongside the representation of “reality”.

 

We invite you to riff on all of these literary tropes and narrative possibilities or invent your own! How might your interest in and understanding of architecture prompt you to craft a children’s story in a way that no other authorial worldview could? How might you craft a story to be read aloud to children, potentially inviting the adult reader to improvise ad lib embellishments or other performative enhancements?  How can picture books enable us to envision, engage, and entertain new and pleasurable worlds?

 

Submission Guidelines

Manuscripts

SOILED – No. 8 – Onceuponascrapers invites illustrated short fiction, nonfiction, fables, fairy tales, poetry, and plays, among many other formats borrowed from children’s literature. All submitted contributions must include illustrations or visual content in addition to text; we also welcome illustrated or visual narratives that operate without any text. Please send a complete manuscript, including all text and images/illustrations. Text should not exceed 500 words. We welcome collaborative teams of writers, illustrators, and/or architects or other creative disciplines. While selected manuscripts will go through a round of edits and revision, we will not accept abstracts or substantially incomplete manuscripts for this call for submissions.

 

Audience

Stories included in this issue of SOILED will be accessible to children (target ages 3–8) and equally engaging and entertaining for audiences of all ages. We are interested in “picture book”-style stories designed for children that will also captivate adults to think about and enjoy the built environment in new ways. The stories do not necessarily need to be “about” architecture nor do they need to illustrate architectural proposals, but they must narrate compelling ideas about space, architecture, or the broader built environment.

 

Format

Onceuponascrapers will be square format pages, approx. 10”x10” pages (20” x 10” spreads). The issue will be printed in two colors—cyan and a reddish hue. Exact Pantone selections TBA. Manuscripts should be submitted as a single, multi-page PDF, composed on square pages. Contributions should range from 10–24 pages (5–12 spreads).

 

All submissions must ensure that if selected, all image/illustration contents can be provided as individual digital files separated into layers that correspond to the two colors. Vector-based artwork should be submitted as Adobe Illustrator files and pixel-based artwork should be submitted as Photoshop files. All artwork must be high resolution at 300dpi appropriate for up to 10 ”x 10” pages.

 

For your manuscript PDF, use the file naming convention “LastName_FirstName_MANUSCRIPT.PDF”. If you are submitting as a collaborative team, use the file naming convention “LastName1_FirstName1+LastName2_LastName2_MANUSCRIPT.PDF”

 

Biographical Info

In addition to your manuscript, please submit the following biographical information as a Word document for each contributor on your team:

—A brief bio (50–75 words).

—Contact information (email address, and if applicable: website and instagram handle).

—How did you learn about SOILED?

 

For your biographical information, use the file naming convention “LastName_FirstName_BIO.docx”. If you are submitting as a collaborative team, use the file naming convention “LastName1_FirstName1+LastName2_LastName2_BIO.docx”

 

Deadline

Please submit your content by Monday, July 8, 2019. Please include the word ‘submission’ in the subject line and attach texts and images as separate files. Submissions should be sent to: submit [op] soiledzine [punt] org

OPEN PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST – SUNSET / SUNRISE 2019

OPEN PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST – SUNSET / SUNRISE 2019

 

    Submission Deadline: July 15, 2019 (12:00 Midnight EST)
    Curator Selection: on or before July 18, 2019
    Artist Notification: on or before July 19, 2019
    Grant Announcement: on or before July 19, 2019
    Exhibit Opens: July 31, 2019

 

Photo-Competition.online is hosting the photography contest “Sunsets 2019”.  This contest would include sunsets and sunrises. There will be 1 grant winner and 9 honorable mentions. This competition is open to all photographers worldwide.

 

Almost all sunsets/sunrises are bold, brilliant, and rich in color.  Unless you want to focus more on other parts of the scenery, it usually won't suffice to say something like "the sky was bright orange and red". Figure out what's unique about the sunset/sunrise in particular and tell the story seen in their mind’s eye.

 

- Ten photographers will be selected for an online group exhibit, "Sunsets 2019"; the exhibit and photographers will be extensively marketed on this website and over the internet, including YouTube.  In this exhibit the selected artist's photos along with the photographers name, title, and size of the photo will be displayed.

 

- One photographer's work will be selected to receive the “Bobby Lashomb Photography Grant” of $100. This artist’s work will become the image of the exhibition and will be used on the invitation, video title screen and on all online presentations.
     
- Ten photographers will receive an photography contest certificate through the Photo-Competition.online website and will be available for life.

 

Theme and Selection:

One of the most magical moments in a day is sunset or sunrise. Sunset is the time when the sun goes down in the horizon creating a beautiful view that the strongest words aren't enough to describe its magic. Indeed, the phenomenon of the sun drowning in the endless sea makes a magnificent prospect with its colors going from red to orange then a mixture of warm, dreamy colors like purple and indigo. Moreover, at some special places, trees especially palms are added to this amazing painting of mother nature looking like guards protecting this piece of art.

 

Sunset & Sunrises are true magic from its colors to its protective trees given to us by the heavens.  Don't feel constrained by images - Whenever I'm describing an image and feel stuck, I search for one on google and try describing that. This is a good tool for getting started, but don't feel like you have to describe the image exactly. In the last image, I might have added something about birds flying across the sky, just because that would look pretty.

Have the sunset foreshadow the mood of the scene - This isn't always easy (I'm personally terrible at it), but when written correctly can be absolutely gorgeous. If you have two lovers watching the sunset together, highlight how beautiful it is. If your character is mourning the death of a loved one, highlight how the beauty of the sunset eventually is replaced by blackness (or something along those lines).


Proceeds from this art competition support the following:
