This is the official Submissions Page for the 2018-19 edition of Signatures Literary and Arts Print Magazine. We are eager to make Volume 34 absolutely brilliant. 

It's also the Submissions Page for gl-ph, RIT's digital literature journal, currently gearing up for our Issue 00.

Send us your best work - we can't wait to see it! Just follow the instructions below:


  • The submission must be your original work (if your piece is a collaborative effort, mention the other artists in the statement section). This work must have been created in your time at RIT.
  • You must be a current RIT student in the 2018-2019 Academic Year.


  • Make sure you read the instructions thoroughly - each category has a slightly different set of guidelines including file types, resolution, etc. 
  • IMPORTANT: if you are submitting more than one work in the same category (ie 2D imagery), please enclose them in the same submission! (you may include separate files)

You can either submit a single file with your work or a URL. If the work is accepted, we will work with you to figure out the best location to hold and archive the work.
  • All .jpgs should be at 300 PPI in Adobe RGB 1998.
    • All photos should also be 2000 pixels on the long edge.
    • If your work is accepted, we will contact you about a higher resolution file.
