MEA invites artwork from military veterans, veteran family members, and members of military communities (DOD civilians, contractors, correspondence) for publication in its annual and quarterly anthologies. We invite all artwork of all types and mediums, especially experimental works. 

In addition to publication in an anthology your work will be considered for publication in the MEA online art gallery.

To be considered, artists must submit high resolution image files (please submit the highest resolution that you can and ensure that it is free from glare) of each work of art. In addition, a .doc or .docx file should be submitted alongside these images with the following information as it pertains to each work:

1. Title of the work(s)
2. Name of the artist(s)
3. Size of the work(s)
4. Medium of the work(s)
5. Two to four sentences about the inspiration behind the piece or its meaning. Your words about the piece you are submitting are important.

In your .doc or .docx file please pair the above information with the images themselves, but also include high res images as separate files.

By submitting your work here you are agreeing to MEA's Copyright and Privacy stipulations located online at
