Art-i-facts Deadlines

  • Deadline for the upcoming print issue of Art-i-facts Magazine – This is the 2021 Directory Guide:
    • November 13, 2020

Art-i-facts Magazine, the cultural arts publication of the Polk Arts Alliance, is normally published five times a year. It is published online, and is distributed to subscribers via mail, through cultural arts locations, venues, chambers of commerce, libraries and visitors centers in Polk County, and through hotels/motels in the region. Due to COVID-19, we are doing Art-i-facts twice a month online and will probably have the print issue 2-3 times during 2021.

DEADLINES for submission of articles, images, potential cover shots, event calendar entries, and advertisements will be posted closer to the deadlines. Deadlines are normally 6 weeks before distribution.

The magazines are typically distributed the last week of the month prior to issue publication dates. Reasonable adjustments are made around holidays.
