Submit Cover Art

Boise Weekly publishes original local artwork on its cover each week. One stipulation of publication is that the piece must be donated to BW’s annual charity art auction in October. A portion of the proceeds from the auction are reinvested in the local arts community through a series of private grants for which all artists are eligible to apply. Cover artists will also receive 30% of the final auction bid on their pieces. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds support Boise Weekly’s ongoing journalism mission. To submit your artwork for BW’s cover, bring it to BW Office at 855 W. Broad St., Ste. 100, Downtown Boise on Wednesdays or Thursdays.

You must be 18 years of age or older and have a valid email address to participate. All original works can be submitted with the exception of digital photography, prints or digitally created art pieces (some exceptions may be allowed with pre-arranged permission). Thirty days from your submission date, your work will be ready for pickup if it’s not chosen to be featured on the cover. Work not picked up within three months of submission will be discarded.
