Open call


We are celebrating Pride Month with an ‘Everything Pride‘ Open Call in June 2024. We are calling all creators from the LGBTQIA+ community and their allies to submit artworks exploring what ‘Pride‘ means to you. We are accepting submissions through the month.


But this time onwards, we want to do things a little differently. In addition to your submissions, we would like to see a little more of you as well.


As always, you can submit as many works as you like, or a series of works. Submissions are free and open to all in any format; photographs, paintings, drawings, sculptures, sketches, illustrations, tapestries, performances, mixed media to name a few.


As usual, a micro grant of ₹10,000 will be awarded to one winner as judged by our Artdemic board of curators. However, we will showcase a curated selection of works every week for the duration of the open call.


Please send the following with your submission in a zipped folder to [email protected]:

1. High resolution images of your work in a JPEG or PNG format. The submitted image size can be no more than 10MB (Image Resolution: 72dpi)
2. An artist statement/concept note as text or a voice recording. This should be your story behind the piece of artwork (not exceeding 300 words).
3. A short bio (not exceeding 200 words).
4. Your Instagram handle
5. Your Age, Location and Contact number.
6. A picture of yourself that best encapsulates your personality
7. A short 3-7 second video of some part of your creative process or your workspace
