Do I retain the rights to my artwork?
Yes. Shaw Creative is giving artists an opportunity to have their artwork published for free in our book, on our website, and on promotional materials. Your name and city/state will be displayed as credit. Whatever else you do with the piece is completely up to you. Read our legal terms here.

Is email the only way to submit my work?
Yes. Please follow the guidelines under the “Submission” headline.

My artistic medium isn’t listed in your guidelines – is my piece eligible for submission?
Contact us at with any photos and details and we will let you know.

Will I be notified if my work isn’t chosen?
Due to a high volume of entries, we are unable to respond to every submission – those chosen will be notified via email.

Where can I purchase the book once it is published?
The book will be made available for purchase on and on Amazon. Winning artists can order directly through us and receive a 50% discount (one time purchase only).

Will there be a digital and/or online copy of the book?
There are no plans to have an online publication, but we will have a .pdf version available for international artists who are chosen. Additionally, some artists may have a chance to be featured on our website.

How will my art be featured in the book?
Photo sizes will vary, but can reach up to one spread size. Your photo(s) will be printed along with your name and city/state.

Will my photos be altered for publication?
Lighting corrections and cropping may be applied, but no major edits will be done.

Why am I being judged on photograph quality?
A bad shot of a good piece will not be accepted – please take extra care when choosing photos, especially for those pieces behind glass.

I don’t have any 2D traditional art to submit – can I still be featured?
Unfortunately we cannot feature your work in this volume, but we are integrating a rolling submission and will consider your piece(s) for future publications. Email us at for more information.
