Fount originally launched in June 2014 as a submission blog exclusively for motherhood photographers. Soon after, we began releasing quarterly magazines to celebrate this art in tangible form. Each 2015 Volume was luxuriously printed, and we sold a small run of copies all over the world. We are beyond honored to have featured incredibly talented artists including Elizabeth Messina, Jen Huang, Elisa Bricker, and more.
Over the past year, we grew in desire to not only highlight motherhood portraiture but to also foster a close-knit community invested in seeing mothers flourish together.
In 2016, Fount will launch the first annual lifestyle publication dedicated to this expanded vision; celebrating the art of being a mother. It will feature inspirational editorials, and uniquely curated stories from mothers around the world, and from those still waiting to be.
Originally, we had hoped to open submissions for this annual edition much earlier than now, but we wanted to carefully dedicate intentional time in setting a much clearer vision, as well as collect meaningful feedback from our readers and community to make this our best release yet.
We will be launching our brand new annual volume in Fall of 2016, and submissions are now open. We are still finalizing exact printer details, but wanted to open submissions as we begin to get closer in having official details in place. Please view our Print Submission FAQ page for further details on what we are looking for, and to access our new submission form. All submissions will now be reviewed and considered for both online and printed publication. We have made small, but important updates to our Submission Page, so please be sure to read them carefully before submitting your work.
We so look forward to seeing and reading your beautiful work & stories that celebrate and honor the art of being a mother. We could not feel more grateful for such a wonderful, supportive community that we have found here at Fount.
