Guidelines for Submitting Paper Dolls
for display in Paperdoll Review magazine

Subscribers are encouraged to create a paper doll in the theme of each issue.
Both amateur & professional work is accepted. Please submit clean, neat work.

Theme art will be displayed in the Paperdoll Review magazine based on
theme interpretation, artistic approach, overall design and available space.

In 2020, OPDAG merged with Paperdoll Review.

You must be a current Paperdoll Review magazine subscriber to submit paper doll art.

Theme Submission Guidelines:


1. Paper dolls may be done in the medium of your choice. Please send neat, clean art: use a light box to do final inking or drawing, remove or white-out paste-up lines, and use neat hand lettering or digital lettering.

2. 8 1/2 x 11 format preferred. Please fit your paper doll on one or two pages. Most likely only one page will be shown, so please keep that in mind when designing your paper doll. Be aware that we may change your layout to suit the space in an issue.

3. Do not fold! Please send flat.

4. Sign your first and last name on your art, and put your name and address on the back (make sure the ink doesn’t show through to the front). Include e-mail and web address if desired. If your work is for sale, please include price and shipping information.

5. We will consider showing celebrity paper dolls as editorial content for theme art, however, we recommend the artist secure rights before offering the work for sale.

6. All artwork submitted will be kept by Paperdoll Review unless return postage and packaging is provided.

7. If you have background information or a story relating to your paper doll, we'll include it as space allows.

8. While our issues are now in full color, we are still happy to receive b&w line art paper dolls.

Sending Artwork:

All artwork submitted will be kept by Paperdoll Review unless return postage and packaging is provided. Artists must accept full responsibility for copyright of images depicted in their paper doll art. Paperdoll Review assumes no responsibility.
