You are being asked to submit a graphic symbol for publication by The Muse Of Fine Arts. Your write-up should consist of an image of a single symbol plus a brief written description of the symbol drawn from the field of the arts that you believe would be of interest to Electricka's visitors. Your symbol and its description will be published at Electricka's feature called Welcome To Graphic Symbol Of The Day.

Publishing your description is a simple, 2-step procedure:

  1. Read this guideline. It explains everything you need to know to prepare your image and written description for submission.
  2. Fill out and submit an Arts Information form. It explains everything you need to know to send your arts information for publication.

submission requirements

The Muse Of Fine Arts invites you to submit a symbol for publication in the feature called Graphic Symbol Of The Day. The focus of this feature is on the graphic nature of symbols and the images that represent them. Since all graphic symbols are matters of the graphic arts, The Muse OF Fine Arts will be be happy to publish your submission even if the subject of your symbol does fall within the realm of the fine arts.

Your submission should consist of two parts: 1) the image of a graphic symbol, and 2) a brief written description about the graphic symbol. Your written description may include your personal opinions or comments. Personal opinions and comments are optional.

Submissions to the feature called Graphic Symbol Of The Day generally meet these requirements:

symbol and image

  • State the name or title of your symbol or image if it has one.
  • Your symbol should be about a subject, topic, or theme of your own choosing. (Subjects taken from or related to the arts, Electricka's web site, and the muses are especially welcome.)
  • Submit one or more graphic images that represent the symbol.
  • Graphic images can take the form of a design, photo, sketch, or drawing. Or they can be represented by a photo of an object that bears the symbol's design or takes the shape of the symbol's design.
  • Black and white images are acceptable. Color images are preferred, especially if color is relevant to the symbol's meaning.
  • Where possible, state the name of the image designer for each image you submit:
    • If you don't know the name of the designer, find it if you can.
    • "Anonymous" is acceptable as the image designer's name if the source of the image is traditional, the designer's name is lost to posterity, or if a name doesn't exist and never did.
  • Any image you submit can be your own original design or you can select a design from the vast storehouse of symbols created by others.
  • Images and write-up may not be proprietary. One or more of the following applies:
    • Copyright or patent has expired or never existed.
    • Images and write-up are in the public domain; they do not belong to anybody.
    • You own them because you created them.
    • You own the legal right to publish which you acquired from someone else.
    • You have oral or written permission from the owner to publish.
  • Image completely finished when submitted. The Muse edits nothing.

description of the image and symbol

  • Your description of the image and symbol should be short and to the point. Supply only enough information to allow visitors to identify the image they are looking at—fewer than about 50-300 words should do; as short as a sentence or as long as a few paragraphs.
  • Written by a visitor to Electricka's web site or by a collaboration of visitors.
  • Primarily in English (foreign language names or expressions or other constructions are fine, if appropriate).
  • Links to other web sites must be approved by Electricka.
  • Multimedia optional.
  • 100 percent original with the author(s) except for properly credited quotations, citations, references, videos, photos, artwork, film clips, animations, music, sound bites, etc.
  • The facts or information on which your written description is based should not contain private information or intellectual property. One or more of the following should apply to your write-up:
    • Copyright or patent has expired or never existed.
    • In the public domain; they do not belong to anybody.
    • You own it because you created it.
    • You own the legal right to publish your write-up which you acquired from someone else.
    • You have oral or written permission from the owner to publish it.
  • Completely finished by the author(s) when submitted. The Muse edits nothing.

optional opinions and comments

  • You have the option to express your personal opinions or make comments about the symbol and images you submit.
  • Personal opinions and comments may be interspersed with your written description or may be placed by themselves following your written description.
  • They should add fewer than 100-200 words to your description.
  • If you add your personal opinions or comments, clearly distinguish between them and your description; indicate which part of your description is objective information and which is not.
  • The requirements for a description of the image and symbol (cited above) apply to your description.

Your arts information can be accepted for publication even if it is not written especially for this feature. It does not have to be submitted by the author(s). Electricka's policies apply.
