Happy Professional Artist Month


ORLANDO, Fla. (May 23, 2013) — Professional Artist – the ultimate career resource for visual artists and creative professionals – is taking its mission of empowering artists to the next level with the first-ever Professional Artist Month. Beginning June 1, Professional Artist will not only introduce a month-long celebration complete with exciting contests, exclusive deals and fun-filled activities, but will also roll out a full suite of brand-new tools designed to further support artists in their careers.

Professional Artist Month is an extension of my vision to make our brand a multifaceted resource for artists,” said Publisher Jannett Roberts. “The redesign of our print magazine in early 2013 began this process, and now this new initiative builds on that by celebrating our talented audience and offering additional key resources that provide them with the information they want, how they want it.”

Throughout this celebratory month, Professional Artist will unveil the following new resources:

Fully optimized iPad app – Offers fast and easy access to all the latest digital issues of Professional Artist magazine via Apple Newsstand.

Dynamic new ProfessionalArtistMag.com Features a streamlined navigation and bold new design that offers direct access to more resources, insights, blogs, videos and photos than ever before.

Enhanced Calls-to-Artists system – Provides sleek listings and intuitive search capabilities that allow users to drill down on the most promising opportunities.

Free “The Calls” e-newsletter – Delivers the week’s hottest calls to artists directly to the inboxes of opt-in subscribers.

Convenient online store – Presents a complete, one-stop shop for Professional Artist resources and merchandise, including the newly released Pocket Guide to Self-Publishing for Artists.

Professional Artist Month and its exciting new offerings are just the latest additions to what has already been a banner year for Professional Artist. In January, the brand debuted a completely redesigned, richer-in-content print product, which allows the publication to delve deeper into the subjects that matter most to professional artists.
