Special Online Issue
Jun 27th, 2011 by ajahannah

Thank you to everyone that has submitted so far to our online/special issue. The deadline will remain open until August 22 and will be full-color so submit freely.

P.S. We do take multiple submissions.

Special Issue
Jun 12th, 2011 by ajahannah

The updates to our new website (not this one) is coming along well and we’re having a special humor issue. Much of what we get is dark and we’re looking to lighten it up. Because it will be an online issue, it will be in full-color so submit works as is.

Our theme is Pirates, Ninjas, and Dinosaurs, but they do not need to be the center of focal point of the story. They can even be only alluded to. It’s up to the artists how to interpret it.

The guidelines are the same as all of our other issues. Please visit our guidelines page for more information.

Spring Color Issue
May 6th, 2011 by ajahannah

Thank you for a new and successful issue. We were able to do a full cover outside and a color inside. If you can, please pick up an issue around campus or in town. If you’d like an issue mailed, please comment here or email us at eyecontact@setonhill.edu

We are working to create a better website for our first online issue. We’re still taking submissions over the summer, but we will reconvene on August 22 to judge them. Submissions can be in full color.

For more info on submitting, go here: http://people.setonhill.edu/AjaHannah/EC-Pirates.html

Website Changes
Mar 22nd, 2011 by ajahannah

Thank you to everyone who submitted to Eye Contact for the Spring 2011 issue. Some of you noticed that our deadline had been changed to March 15 instead of the 19.

We had problems accessing the website after we switched over to WordPress. We’re sorry for the confusion. Hopefully, we’ll be back up and running soon.

The next issue coming up is the special issue. It’s a humorous issue so no dark themes. We would especially appreciate anything with pirates, dinosaurs (animals), or ninjas. Specify in your submission that it is for the special issue.

The special issue deadline is April 22, though it is a bit flexible as we won’t get to judging until May. For more information, see¬†http://people.setonhill.edu/AjaHannah/EC-Pirates.html

Spring Issue
Oct 22nd, 2010 by ajahannah

Thank you to everyone who submitted. Judging went wonderfully and for once we had more art than we knew what to do with. Please keep sending them in for the spring issue. Our deadline is March 19.
Also, send any thing to do with Pirates/Ninjas/Dinosaurs as we’re accepting work for that issue as well. Look out: there may be a deadline soon.
Donations are always welcome. We would like to do the next issue with a color cover or spot color, but that’s another $300 over our budget.
The Fall issue will be out on stands the last week of November. If you donated, we’ll be sure you get one. If you are not on our usual distribution list or on campus to grab one, please email Aja Hannah at Han6769@setonhill.edu

New Guidelines
Sep 23rd, 2010 by ajahannah

Our goals were to make the directions more clear, open to submitters, open to types of submissions, short, and friendly.

The (Pirates versus Ninjas) + Dinosaurs issue has similar guidelines with no deadline and an obvious theme.

To old submitters, not much has changed. Don’t stress over it.

To new submitters, we hope we made that chunk of text less intimidating.

New Online Design
Sep 19th, 2010 by ajahannah

Eye Contact is looking to revamp the layout and up our web presence. We’re looking for new web editors as well as anyone interested in working on the design of the website.
Please contact Editor-in-Chief Aja Hannah at Han6769@setonhill.edu if you are interested.
Because our web layout is being worked on, there may be times when the site is down, under construction, confusing, or without timely updates. We hope you’ll forgive us. It’s all for the better.

Special Issue and Fall Deadline
Sep 19th, 2010 by ajahannah

Eye Contact is accepting submissions for our Fall 2010 issue. There is no theme. Submit as much as you want. Guidelines are posted around Seton Hill University and will be online soon. Deadline is October 15.
Guidelines are similar to Spring 2010’s guidelines.
Eye Contact wants to try something new this (and possibly next) year. We’re having a rolling issue. Theme: Pirates vs Ninjas + Dinosaurs.
This issue does not have a deadline or production date. When we raise enough money and receive enough quality content, it will go to print.
We look forward to your submissions!
