What is Create | Encounter?

Create | Encounter is an annual art contest that culminates in a special edition of our magazine and a corresponding release party. Our goal with this project is to engage the grassroots community through an open call for submissions, promote education on issues of human dignity through an annual compilation of creative works, and stimulate discourse on these issues by bringing artists together at the release event.


Submissions have closed for the 2023 edition of Create | Encounter! Our 2023 release party featuring our winners will be held virtually on April 29. The submission window for our 2024 edition will open Fall 2023. Go ahead and download the submission guidelines below to start creating your 2024 submission today:
