the yearling edition: prompt 'seraphim'

SERAPHIM: an angelic being, regarded in traditional Christian angelology as belonging to the highest order of the ninefold celestial hierarchy, associated with light, ardour, and purity.

✥ SERAPHIC EMBRACES ✥ to cherish and intertwine, unveiling the essence of celestial love before shaping it into an ethereal form ✥ THERE IS NO LIMIT TO ASCENSION ✥ embracing the old barriers, birthing the sublime, a perpetual dance of connection in the seraphic realm ✥ CELESTIAL UNION ✥ an eternal intertwining of hearts and wings, intertwined with the spirit of seraphic devotion ✥ in the act of seraphic embrace, the seraphim's existence is already immersed ✥ LOVE IS ALREADY HERE ✥ embrace, embrace, embrace ✥ cupid asks you, is love still left? ✥ are you still connected? ✥ THE ANGELS ARE WATCHING ✥ YOU ARE PROTECTED ✥ DO NOT LOOK AWAY

Submissions open 31st January AWST and close 31st March AWST.

Updates as of 16/12/23 - Audiovisual Highlights:

- Antler Velvet has decided to make a distinction between static and time-based works (such as multimedia films). 

- If you would like to submit a film, there will be stills & a QR code featured in the magazine, but we will upload the full film on a separate portion of the website (under construction). Please email us for more information.

Updates as of 17/4/24 - Submission Periods:

- Due to a surge in popularity, AV will only have submissions open for a month for each edition. This is to ensure enough curation and formatting time provided to our small team of editors!

All successful creators will be emailed upon the release of the online magazine.

Feel free to submit again if your previous work wasn't the right fit for us. We're cool with simultaneous submissions too, just give us a heads-up if your work finds a home elsewhere. And, of course, no previously published stuff, please.

Looking forward to checking out your awesome work!
