WRITTEN TEXT GUIDELINES
Please submit all articles as MS Word documents (*.doc) or as rich text format (*.rtf) files. Theme-based articles can be up to 1500 words, individual artist-based articles can be up to 750 words. At this time, MAGC does not offer remuneration for articles; however extra copies of any published articles can be made available on request.
Digital images should be submitted in TIFF, JPG or RAW form. Image resolution should be no less than 300 ppi and 1500 x 2100 pixels (12 x 18 cm / 5 x 7 inches), or preferably 2400 x 3000 pixels (20 x 25 cm / 8 x 10 inches) in size. Please label all jpgs clearly, with the last name of the artist and title keyword (i.e. smithflowerring.jpeg). Do not alter or edit images in a photo editing program! Repeated file saving diminishes image quality, especially in jpg format. If corrections need to be made, please add a note and we will make the corrections.
Images must be accompanied by caption information, which cover the following details: artist name, title of work, materials, construction technique, size and year of completion.With all article submissions, please include a 50 word biography or byline. (Example: Mary Moore has been a jeweller and metalsmith for fifteen years, living and working in Edmonton. She can be contacted at www.??????? ). These bios are printed on the Contributors Page of each issue.
Under MAGC and MAGazine agreement with Ganoksin.com, MAGC members whose articles, reviews, workshop techniques etc. have previously appeared in MAGazine, can be submitted for dissemination via Ganoksin. Ganoksin is the gem and jewellery world's foremost resource on the Internet, open to the public, free of charge, and it is their mandate to make available information to jewellers everywhere. This is a fantastic way to both promote Canadian artists on an international forum, and encourage the promotion of shared information.
