Use the bio and commentary to tell your story in detail.

Please write in personal, accessible terms, avoiding excessive jargon. Issues and interviews are in English; written facility is necessary.

When you are selected, Dek Unu staff will contact you to develop the interview via exchange of emails. Artists and staff develop interview and image commentaries in collaborative dialog.
