    Personal information


    Optional demographic information

    The following questions are around demographic information, this is optional for you to complete, but, we feel it is really important information to help us ensure we are a diverse and inclusive publication. We want to show case works from diverse communities and identities.

    We have found that different cultural backgrounds, different communities and different social groups use various types of visual languages and aesthetics; sometimes, we may not be aware of these differences or important language variations. Asking for the demographic information is a way for us to be constantly checking in with our own unconscious bias when we are curating each publication.

    If you would like to provide any further details, please feel free to provide in the fields below.
