Our readers are professional artists, professors, curators, art historians, writers and students — those interested in contemporary lens-based, new media and film. Our readers hold onto their magazines: they share them, keep them for reference, for interest and are collected for our artist projects, which gives them occasion time and time again to see your ad and become familiar with your name.
With the high print and production quality of the magazine (100% is full-colour), we offer our advertisers the ability to have an impact on an established readership base that is always excited to learn about the latest in lens-based or digital technology. Our copies will be picked up nation-wide and in the US on newsstands; and nationally and internationally by our subscribers. An average of 500-1000 new readers encounter our product per issue at public launches, arts festivals, conferences, international art fairs, or through direct mailing campaigns. We are read in homes, studios, public and commercial galleries, libraries, film/video production houses, cafes, and at other high profile art events.
