We are looking for photographs of surreal scenes found in the world around you. Selected images will be made into a series of postcards that seemingly hail from another reality, paired with an enamel badge related to the series. We hope to see surreal scenes that are mystifying by nature, and not by way of multiple exposure, light leak, performance, or or any other effect.
You are now ready to send over your work for consideration by following the guidelines below. Please note that only complete submissions will be considered, so take your time and send over your materials as requested.
Deadline for submissions: November 11th 2018 midnight EST time. Publication Print Date: estimated goal time is 12/10/2018 yet this is subject to change
