Art Submissions

The visual work we share is as important to us as our written work, and the artist community we’ve built at dubble over the last year is something we are very proud of.

We welcome and encourage contributions from people with lived experience of disability. This includes, but is not limited to, those who are disabled, chronically ill, mentally ill, sick, crip, neurodivergent, terminally ill, d/Deaf, hard of hearing, blind, and mad. You do not have to identify as disabled to contribute.

dubble is a new space for disabled creatives to build a community and share their work, and unfortunately, we run on a volunteer basis. Please keep this in mind when contacting us. Rest assured, we are working on finding ways to become a sustainable business that can pay all of our contributors in the future.

If you’re interested in writing for dubble, check out our pitching guidelines.

The Basics

  • Send applications to:
  • Please start your subject line with ‘ARTIST APPLICATION,’ and include in your email:
    • your full name and pronouns (if you’re comfortable sharing)
    • confirmation that you have lived experience of disability (we don’t require details unless relevant to the work)
    • any access needs you’d like us to know
  • We are open to applications to become a dubble artist or one-off art submissions.
  • If you would like to become a dubble artist who is open to regularly creating pieces to go alongside our articles, please send us a short paragraph about yourself, some examples of your work, your availability, and links to your social media where possible.
  • If you would like to send us a one-off submission, please send us a short paragraph about yourself, the work you’d like us to share, and links to your social media where possible.

Important Stuff

  • If your work contains sensitive images, please include a trigger warning at the beginning of your email to protect our volunteers, e.g. ‘TW: blood.’
  • We welcome submissions from photographers, illustrators, painters, animators, filmmakers, and more.
  • Deadlines can always be adjusted to suit your needs.
  • A team of disabled volunteers are responding to your emails – please be patient with us and remember that in our case, a slow reply doesn’t mean we haven’t accepted your work.
