About the Book

The When Robots Dream book will be a full-color, 9 x 12 inch book. The final page count will depend on the number of images and stories accepted, but we are estimating 200-250 pages.
Submission Fees

ArtOrder LLC believes that the money should flow towards the creative and that even the most modest of submission fees can be a financial hardship for some creatives. For that reason, we will not charge any submission fees. For creatives that have the means, we ask you to consider a small donation to the Honorarium Fund that gifts our Jury for their time and energy given in the cause of furthering the arts.

Copyrights and Ownership

ArtOrder LLC believes and celebrates creatives. To that, we do not require forfeiture of any rights to your works. You retain all copyrights and ownership of your works. If selected, you will be required to complete a licensing agreement with ArtOrder that grants us the right to publish your work(s) in the publication and use them in the book’s promotion.

NOTE: If you do not own the copyright for the material - DO NOT submit it unless you can produce a written agreement from the copyright owner giving us permissions to use the image in our products and promotions.

A free copy of the book after publication
