Mind Key is an online resource and platform for people looking to utilize their talents and passions to do what they love for a living. Our online magazine, The Daily Key, offers artists opportunities for exposure by sharing exceptional artwork and photography to accompany our all-original content posts.
We will periodically send emails seeking art to accompany upcoming articles. We may also seek use of a specific photo of yours we’ve seen online. If you are interested in having us promote your work, we will ask you to upload the files you might want us to use to a shared folder we will create for you in Google Drive. Unpublished images in this folder will only be shared with our editorial team. We will also share with you some ideas for the type of images we are looking for, themes for our upcoming issues, and assignments for upcoming stories. This way, as you come across images that fit those themes (or if you are inspired to create some), you can upload them as well.
It’s that simple!
From here, our editorial team will let you know if we choose to use your work. At this time, you may approve or reject our use of the image, and if approved, invoice us for the agreed-upon compensation.
We will also send an agreement for the use of your art that notes that you are the sole owner of the work, allowing us permission to publish with credit to you. We encourage you to watermark or sign your art/photos, but even if you don’t, we will always credit you work and link any image we publish to your online presence.
Just fill out our ONLINE APPLICATION (it only takes a few minutes), and we’ll get you started with a folder so you can begin uploading your images right away.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out. We appreciate your passion and your interest in our work, and look forward to seeing your artwork in our publication.
