The Submission Deadline is November 30, 2021, at 11:59 pm CST

The Submission Fee is $20

Antenna is accepting proposals of Sequential Art, Comic Books, or Graphic Novels.

Submissions can be either fully fleshed out, in process, or in the incubation stage. The publication can be 9" x 12" in size or smaller with 250-page count max, full color, or B&W. Depending on the publication size, books will either be stapled or perfect bound. Artists are required to scan or otherwise digitally prepare their drawings and work for publication. Design and layout assistance is available upon request.

Though we are open to all styles of sequential art, comics, and graphic novels, we recommend you familiarize yourself with Antenna's publications before submitting--see here: https://www.antenna.works/book-order.

Emerging and established artists and writers from all disciplinary backgrounds are eligible to apply. We strongly encourage submissions from Black, Indigenous, people of color, women, immigrants, and LGBTQ-GNC+ artists, including those with disabilities. We are committed to publishing the voices of artists known and unknown, particularly those who interpret ideas through the lens of New Orleans or have connections to the City or the Gulf South region.


  • $500 stipend (to be split among the authors/artists/collaborators)
  • Up to 20 hours of design and layout assistance from Paper Machine staff.
  • Antenna will print up to 300 copies under the Antenna::Paper Machine imprint, with the author receiving 50 free copies. The author can purchase additional copies at a discounted wholesale rate.
  • If your proposal changes significantly, we will ask you to submit an updated proposal.



This fee helps to defray the cost of the jury process. If support is needed with the application fee, don't hesitate to contact us at info@antenna.works for assistance.


  • November 30, 2021: Deadline for applications
  • Late January 2022: Announcement of awardees

Upon acceptance, you will be contacted by the Publication & Residency Manager to discuss details of your publication and scheduling.
