New Underwriting Rates

Artists of Utah has made it even easier and more cost-effective to show your support for the visual arts community while promoting your business or organization.

We have introduced more flexible rates and deeper discounts for bulk rates for underwriters supporting 15 Bytes.

And if you don't have a website, we'll help you build one.

We have introduced smaller underwriting spots for 15 bytes that allow artists, galleries and local businesses to place an individual spot (with link to a website) in the pages of our magazine for $35 (for examples of ads see page 2). In addition, underwriters can choose to become year-long contributors for $200, giving the underwriter eight underwriting spots ($25 each). Spots can be combined in an issue for a larger ad or used over eight different issues. This year-long package is ideal for galleries who have exhibitions every month and want to insure that they receive exposure every time 15 bytes is published.

To make it easier on struggling artists we will allow you to purchase our year package of eight ads as a group. Take four ads for yourself and four for a friend. Or pool your resources with eight other artists for an ad each.

Each of our underwriting ads link to the website of the underwriter. Don't have a website? Don't worry. For an additional $50, Artists of Utah will create a webpage for you and update it twice throughout the year.
Businesses are also welcome as underwriters.
