March 2014 Issue / Women in Art 278

Women in Art 278 is proud to announce the release of our March 2014 issue. And, we are even happier to announce the winner of our cover page art contest: American Artist Angela Treat Lyon! Our cover page art pays tribute to Access to Clean Water because March 22nd is World Water Day! Angela's art embodies the power and strength of beings as well as the strength, beauty and power of water. It's important that those with access to clean water not waste or pollute it. Waste we create directly impacts all living beings as well as our planet.

The mission of our magazine is to showcase talented female artists from across the globe but we would be remiss if we didn't also take the opportunity to talk about (or use art in lieu of our words) incredibly important social issues that afflict every country around our globe. As female artists, we often find inspiration for our art from our daily lives, by society, by nature and ... well, it seemed fitting to incorporate some of these global issues into our magazine. 

As always, we offer our magazine three ways. (1) as a free e-magazine (2) as a printed edition that is shipped directly to your home or office and (3) as a digital download so people have the option to print it locally. Below are both links to the March 2014 issue. 


To purchase a printed edition or digital download:

Celebrating the Earth (Art Contest)



Aprils Cover Page Art Contests pays tribute to our beautiful Earth in all of it's glory (untouched nature or in its diseased state as well - literal or abstract interpretations welcome). Submissions must be received no later than March 25, 2014 via our online submission form that includes the artist's contact information, a write up about the submitted artwork for the cover and a high resolution (non-digital watermark) copy of the art. The watermark pertains only to artists who overlay a digital copyright symbol or name on or across their artwork to protect it from unauthorized reproductions. Artists, such as painters, who sign their artwork may certainly submit signed pieces. If you have any questions, please let us know. 

Our cover page art contests are open to all female artists across the globe. In order to contribute, please complete the application through our online form. Artists participating in cover page contests are required to provide a write up about how their artwork directly or abstractly connects with the contest theme. Artists may write in their native language.

If you have any questions about how to contribute or what is needed, please contact us by writing a comment below, contacting us using the contact form on the right column of the blog or through our facebook page.


Commonly Asked Questions


  • How much does it cost? 
    • It costs $15 to submit for the art contest. However, any artists who pays $15 for the art contest also gets a single page spread in the magazine. So, whether your art is selected for the cover or not, it will still be featured! Once you complete the application, you can pay using these options here
  • How do I submit my art?
    • We have an easy-to-use online form where you can provide all of your information, the images of your art work and the write up. Click here to view the online application. All submissions are final so please, please, please do not contact us with changes to the write up, the art you selected and so on. 
  • How much should I write for my write up? 
    • We suggest reading our past issues to see how we highlight our cover page artists and feature their write up. Don't be overwhelmed by the write up requirement. We suggest being honest and open about the artwork, your inspiration, the subject and the theme. Most artists whose art connects with a theme tend to have a bit to say about it, which is GREAT! But, for those who don't feel comfortable with their grammar, we will edit it in English and help it flow together nicely if you are selected. 
  • What happens if I'm not selected? 
    • You still will be featured in the magazine! Your payment of $15 secures a single page for the magazine issue or if you pay $25 you still get a double-page spread. If you are selected for the cover, you will be featured on the cover, the back cover and an additional two-page spread inside the issue! 
  • Does the art for my artist pages in the issue have to relate to the art contest theme? 
    • No. The artwork you submit on the forms for your artist pages does not have to connect with the theme. It can if you'd like to - we certainly welcome it! But, it does not have to. 
  • What size do my photos have to be?
    • All images submitted must be 300dpi so they are print quality. We offer the magazine online and as a printed edition so we must cater to the higher resolution needs of printing. 
  • Do I need a professional photographer to take pictures of my art in order to contribute? 
    • We do not require professional photos of your artwork but do require the art to be in focus, have proper color balance and good composition. If you are uncertain if your images meet these specifications, please email us a sample to review. Thanks!

March's Art Contest -- Water

water. agua. ماء. dŵr. biyo. ura. জল. voda. น้ำ. maji. tubig. amanzi. eau. 水. νερό. vatten. 물. vatn. woda. ទឹក. uisce. מים. wasser. acqua. 

all living beings deserve access to clean water. 

  • An estimated 200 million hours are spent each day globally collecting water.
  • A study by the World Bank and the IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre of community water and sanitation projects in 88 communities found that projects designed and run with the full participation of women are more sustainable and effective than those that do not.
  • Surveys from 45 developing countries show that women and children bear the primary responsibility for water collection in the vast majority of households (76%). This is time not spent working at an income-generating job, caring for family members, or attending school.
  • More than 3.4 million people die each year from water, sanitation, and hygiene-related causes. Nearly all deaths, 99 percent, occur in the developing world.
  • In just one day, it is estimated that more than 152 million hours of women and girls' time is consumed for the most basic of human needs — collecting water for domestic use.
  • Lack of access to clean water and sanitation kills children at a rate equivalent of a jumbo jet crashing every four hours.
  • Of the 60 million people added to the world's towns and cities every year, most move to informal settlements (i.e. slums) with no sanitation facilities.
  • 780 million people lack access to an improved water source; approximately one in nine people.
  • "[The water and sanitation] crisis claims more lives through disease than any war claims through guns."
  • An American taking a five-minute shower uses more water than the average person in a developing country slum uses for an entire day.
  • Over 2.5 times more people lack water than live in the United States.
  • More people have a mobile phone than a toilet.

If you have art depicting water, we'd love to have you submit it for our March cover page art contest. Each month Women in Art 278 Magazine features a global issue or global celebration on our cover. Care to join us? To find out more, click here.
