What is FLIPSIDE HQ?
Flipside HQ is an independent digital creative arts magazine giving a platform for new, up and coming and established artists to showcase their work in a regular multi media magazine to help give airplay and gain more attention and exposure to a wider audience.
How many files can I upload?
We would be grateful if you could keep the initial uploads to a maximum of 3 files or provide 3 URL’s to an external site (Youtube,Vimeo, WeTransfer etc.), these can be added to later, however it would help us with our initial media choices if we do not receive your catalogue.
What is the Uploader?
The Uploader allows you to upload your own content to FlipSide HQ. You can either provide this by:
- using our upload tool, or
- providing links to external video websites (Youtube, Vimeo etc), or
- providing a link to a downloadable file via sites such as WeTransfer.
How can I use the Uploader?

Artists under the age of 16
Under 16’s should not upload or provide details of content. A guardian, family member, teacher or carer must upload on behalf of anyone under 16 and therefore they will need to create an account and use their email address for all communication between FLIPSIDE HQMusic Introducing and the account holder. They will also need to agree to the Terms and Conditions of the FLIPSIDE HQ Uploader as the “artist” on your behalf and to have the rights and permissions in place to agree to the terms and conditions set out.
You can find all of our policies here: https://flipsidehq.com/about/policies/
When I submit media to you, does that mean you own it?
No. When you agree to the terms and conditions, and provide us with content, you are not signing over any ownership rights. Though you do accept the terms and conditions as set out regarding the use of your content by FlipSideHQ.
Will my content be used on FLIPSIDE HQ

Is this exclusive to the UK?
No, we are happy to collect media from any creative who wants to share, obviously we expect the greater majority of content from UK artists.
Why does Flipside HQ want so much information?
You can give as much or as little as you wish to share. Obviously the more you send to us, the better we understand you and your art form, which will help us decide whether your content will fit in to the format of our shows.
If I upload an image, how will you use it ?
Your image will not be published unless to promote your appearances on shows. It will be used to promote you as an artist or Flipside HQ as a brand.
Can I upload content with swearing or explicit graphic imagery?
Explicit language or content may limit our use of the material as the format of the show is Pre Watershed. However we may use this content in another show format.
Is there a limit to the size of file I can upload?
Yes – each file you upload must be less than 128MB in size. We are happy to accept larger files via WeTransfer, please add the URL of your WeTransfer files in the relevant field on the uploader.
Please refer to our guides on how to upload content via WeTransfer.

Can I create more than one profile for the same artist?
One artist may have multiple profiles in the case of being involved in more than one project. Project profiles should not be duplicated. Please note that duplicate project profiles may be deleted.
