Submissions are now open for HOAX's online platform!

We accept text-based work of all forms, providing they incorporate text and are intended to be shown to readers and audiences digitally. This can mean text, image, video, audio, or something more site-specific, embedded into the page or making use of its HTML. You can see past work we've presented here.

Each new piece is shared across HOAX's social media platforms and weekly e-newsletter.

Although HOAX normally presents work online, in print and through events and exhibitions, we are currently only taking submissions for work to be shown on the HOAX website, in response to COVID-19 and social distancing efforts. We hope to bring back HOAX's print and IRL platforms later this year.

You can read more about our return here.


Due to circumstances hastening HOAX’s relaunch, with submissions and showing/publishing work now happening concurrently to this fundraising, we can’t confirm yet exactly how frequently work will be published or how much contributors will be paid. Both will be dictated by funds raised by our ongoing crowdfunder, and the more money that we raise, the more works we will be able to publish and the more artists we will be able to support.

Our current aim is to pay contributors £50 per piece, and to publish one piece per week. We acknowledge that this is not much, but it's the best we can do right now, and both fee and frequency may (and hopefully will) increase depending on funding. All funds raised will go directly into the pockets of contributors; the HOAX team will be working pro bono and will cover any additional expenditures privately.

If your work is selected for HOAX, we'll get in touch about how best to make payment to you. Those who would like to submit their work to HOAX but do not feel that they are in a place of financial hardship, or who wish to waive their fee so that it can be given to a contributor who is in more need of funds as a result of the pandemic, are welcome to do so.

If you would like to submit work in an alternate format due for accessibility reasons, contact us.
