What kind of submissions are you open to?

Tentatively, we are open to anything that is at its core, related to art, culture and design. This includes and is not limited to, arts in the local Malaysian and International scene. Topics on animation, literature, movies, TV, fine arts, performance art, illustration, graphic design are also more than welcome. As a general rule of thumb, we try to ask ourselves, “what is the core artistic idea of this topic?”, and use this as a basis for our curatorial process. Our writing is defined by strong opinions and creative discourses. While we are no stranger to controversial topics, we discourage excessive contempt or hate speech of any kind. It is a fine line that we cannot truly define but hope it comes across clearly as we try to encourage a better way to discuss ideas.

How is the process of selection?

Selection of submissions is solely at the due diligence of the Tailored Raw Editorial Team. We do not accept responsibility for any other unsolicited material sent over in the form of original illustrations/ prints/ photographs/ video. Additionally we do not accept payment in and of any kind for publishing content by a sole contributor and also operate on curatorial basis from the team.
