For Arrests of Attention, Verity La will consider all forms of visual art including photography, painting, drawing, animation, graphic art and images of sculpture. We are looking for striking work that reflects a strong mood, work that will engage and move the viewer, work that tells a story.

Images that are both literally and figuratively dark (black and white, or muted in colour palette) are preferred.

Current work from both emerging and established artists is encouraged.

For examples of work published in Arrests of Attention, visit our Vault.

Submissions are accepted during the months of March and September.

Submit a series of up to ten interrelated images via Submittable.
