PaperGirl Brisbane – calling all ‘artists’ (not just Brisbane or Queensland)

Calling all poets, writers, lyricists, artists, photographers, comic writers ….. from anywhere in Australia.

The following contains amendments to the original post. Amendments are in italics.

I have just found out that PaperGirl Brisbane is very happy to accept submissions outside Brisbane (and Queensland for that matter).

You can email your submissions to:

Any queries please contact Marc on 0416 204 832 or by email at  If you live outside Australia, I suggest you contact them if you have any queries regarding submission.

I believe submissions close Thursday 2 February (afternoon).

What do they do? In a nutshell –

1. Collect artwork and writing

2. Exhibit all the submitted pieces of work.

Work will be exhibited this Friday 3 February 2012.

White Canvas Gallery
26 Church Street
Fortitude Valley QLD 4006

3. Deliver all the work to random people via bicycle.

All work will be rolled up and on the Saturday you can be one of the people who distributes the artwork to random people by bike! What a wonderful idea!

To find out more:

The following is taken from their website:

PaperGirl Brisbane is a cultural initiative which works to bridge the gap between the wider public of Brisbane, and the local artists and writers who live here. In the style of American paperboys, art and writing is collected from the local creative community, exhibited in a gallery, rolled up, and then distributed by bicycle to the random passers-by in Brisbane’s CBD.

Anyone who wishes to be involved is invited to participate, regardless of age, education, profession, gender, or location. Artworks accepted include drawings, photographs, text, pictures, stickers, posters – basically anything ‘creative’ and considered that can be rolled and distributed by bicycle.

Submission guidelines:

PaperGirl Brisbane encourages you to  submit as many contributions as you would like – in some cases artwork is reproduced to allow more people to receive your work.

There are no guidelines as to medium or quantity: originals, prints, photos, copies etc. are all acceptable forms of submissions. The only requirement is that the art be flexible enough to be rolled up. If you would like to receive credit, print your name on the back of your piece.

Work can be submitted to PaperGirl Brisbane through post, email or at their drop-off location.
