The Louise Blouin Media Submissions Website allows clients the ability to upload ads creative via a web browser for print advertisements scheduled to appear in Louise Blouin Media publications. The website is accessible online using Safari, Firefox, or Internet Explorer and is an upgrade to the former FTP site. Rather than using an FTP client, you can browse and upload files directly from your desktop.
You may submit ads materials and creative to the Louise Blouin Media FTP Website for the following publications:
GalleryGuide (print publication only)
Art Sales Index
Please note: The submissions website is for print advertisement submissions only.
For ARTINFO Micro-sites, all materials should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
