Submit an artwork
Hi, I'm blinry, the curator of the Glitch Gallery! Thanks for your interest in submitting an artwork! We're looking for:
- images, animations, or videos
- created by computers or other technical systems
- which are pretty
- and were created unintentionally.
You can submit your own art, or art by other people. In the latter case, we will take care of asking for their consent to display their art in the Glitch Gallery.
A word about licenses
This is the most permissive option. Your art is basically placed in the public domain, which will allow us, for example, to use it to promote the Museum on flyers, stickers, or (possibly) merchandise. Thanks for giving your art to the world!
This variant requires that, when your art is displayed somewhere, you must be credited by your name. This restricts where we'll be able to use it, but we will probably still use it on some flyers, making sure to comply with this requirement. If you're not sure, we'd recommend this option.
This variant additionally requires that if your art is modified, the result must be released under the same license as the original, which means it will keep a free license. Some might prefer this "copyleft" mechanism, some might not.
Ready? Great! There are two ways to submit your artwork:
Option 1: Send us an email
Click this link to open our template in your default mail client. If that doesn't work, please copy the template below into your mail client.
Fill out the template, and attach your artwork. Files of virtually any size should work.
Subject: [Glitch Gallery] Submission
title: Some Pretentious Artsy Title (like "Uncontained" or "The Eye of the Cube")
creator: Your Name (real name or nickname, seperate multiple creators with "&")
homepage: https://your-homepage.org (remove this line if you don't want a link on your name, seperate homepages of multiple creators with "&")

license: CC0 1.0 or CC BY 4.0 or CC BY-SA 4.0 (remove this line if you're not the creator)
What went wrong when this art was created? What did you actually want to do? Which software or technology did you use? Visitors love to read all the nerdy details here!
You can use the Markdown syntax here to insert *italic text* or [links](https://example.com).
Dont' forget to attach your artwork! (Or link to it, if it's hard to extract from a tweet, for example!)
Option 2: Create a pull request
This is an option for you if you know how to use Git, and have a GitHub account:
Fork the project on GitHub: blinry/glitchgallery
Clone it to your machine, and make a copy of the template directory:
$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:username/glitchgallery
$ cd glitchgallery/content/
$ git checkout -b title-of-your-art
$ cp -r template title-of-your-art
title-of-your-art/index.md, and drop your art files into the same directory.
Make and push a commit:
$ git add title-of-your-art
$ git commit -m "Add Some Artsy Title"
$ git push
Now, go to your fork and create a pull request. You're done! Thank you so much!
