Dear friends and strangers -
We are proud to announce the next issue for TAGTAGTAG Magazine. TAGTAGTAG is a project that is close to the Lintroller collective’s heart. Featuring the acclaimed charismatic photographer, George Pitts - Issue 01 of TAGTAGTAG will also be the first printed issue of the magazine. In addition to a physical copy, TTT01 will also feature an online version of its publication that displays multimedia elements.
For the most part, TTT01 has completed its roster of amazing artists that we can’t wait to announce in the near future. However, we wanted to take this opportunity to also open up the possibility to be included in the project to everyone.
The premise of TAGTAGTAG as a publication project is influence. How the works and lives of others influence our thinking and process when it comes to creative work. The publication compiles works of all medium that expands thematic or aesthetic consistencies relevant to the individual creative we highlight each issue.
We have put together an editorial package that you can conveniently view online. You can also see the pilot issue of the magazine, which features fashion designer Rosie Rittenberry to have a better idea of what we are trying to accomplish.
More details on submitting can be found below —!
We look forward to see your work.
TAGTAGTAG is both an online and a physical publication. The works that you submit must be relevant to our conversation with George and his work.
To submit, please send your works with the accompanying materials to email@example.com. Please mention “TAGTAGTAG SUBMISSION" in the subject line.
We accept works of all medium.
Please include a biography, a link to your website, and a short statement (max 250 words) describing the influence or connection between the work that you are submitting and our conversation with George Pitts.
For written works, please do not exceed 2000 words.
For images, please send 10 - 20 .jpgs, .gifs or .png sized 1500px on the longest side at 100ppi. Hi-Res will be required if your work is approved for inclusion.
For video, please send a link and a brief synopsis (100 words).
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS 18 SEPT. 2014

Talking about GIFs and the internet kind of seriously on magazines.
But whereas the GIF is created and posted without attribution, Vines are very much the opposite, according to Eppink: “The very ethos of the GIF is that they’re immediately released into the commons, but Vines are very ‘authored’ and ‘owned’ in nearly every sense of those words. This reflects the moment that the two formats were created in.
The web was a techno-utopian paradise when the GIF was first created, and the behavior that we evolved around GIFs reflects the early ethos of the web: sharing, learning, generosity. Now, the web is a place for wild speculation and get-rich-quick VCs [venture capitalists] and identity-making/performing, and that’s all pretty clearly reflected in Vine.”
The interview we did with printmag is up online.
