You can also buy a pre-paid package of 5 announcements for the price of 500 euro. There is no time limit for using the 5 announcements. If you want to buy a package of 5 announcements please send us an e-mail so that we can send you the payment information and an invoice. If you want to do a single announcement you do not need to contact us before creating the announcement: just create your announcement online and submit it at least one week before you want us to distribute it. If your institution or the hosting institution has already used e-artnow previously we will send you an invoice of 150 euro which has to be paid before we distribute your announcement.


Your first free of charge announcement is sponsored through 3 publicity banners at the very end of the announcement. If you do not wish to have this publicity in your first free announcement you can send us an e-mail when you have submitted the announcement and request to pay the regular price for the announcement. Like this we will not include the publicity banners. All subsequent paid announcements are without any 3rd party publicity.

Please be aware that we need your announcement at least one week in advance. We are flexible but we cannot guarantee short time submissions. We have no reservations, no waiting lists, you just create your announcement online at least one week before you want us to send it out. When you create the announcement online you will specify the desired date for sending it out.

The submitted announcements will not be sent out automatically. Our board makes a selection based on the quality and the content of the text as well as the potential interest of the announcement for our worldwide readers specialized in contemporary visual arts. For all different types of announcements (exhibitions, magazines, art fairs, open calls etc.) we require a substantial  text in english language. Please check our Announcement archive in order to get a better idea of our policy.

When you send out your second, third etc. announcement the procedure is the same as described before. The client will only be charged for announcements accepted by our board. You will get an e-mail invoice from us when our board has accepted your submission. The 150 euro fee has to be paid before we send out the announcement and you can pay via credit cards or bank wire. If you wish to buy a package of 5 announcements (to be used without time limit) for the price of 500 euro, please contact us per e-mail.

In case of an exhibition / event taking place within an institution or a gallery we can only send out the announcement if it is submitted by the staff of the institution or by the official PR Agency of the institution. If you are a participating artist or a freelance curator please ask the institution or the gallery  to submit the announcement. Nevertheless we do encourage artists and curators to announce independent projects and to submit creative announcements. Feel free to surprise us and our +55.000 readers.
