COLORS is now accepting pitches for short articles and longer reportage on our digital platforms.
If you've been sitting on a good story or just have an idea for one, please feel free to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visual or wordy, research or reportage, all we request is a paragraph or two explaining the subject, angle and treatment you have in mind, plus some sample images or ideas for visualizing the story. A few tips (but please don't limit yourself to these or we'll get bored):
- As "a magazine about the rest of the world," we're happy to publish stories from Los Angeles, London and Berlin, but we're even happier to publish something from Žarqajyń District, Kazakhstan.
- COLORS has always been known for its images, so your pitch should consider the visual side of the story. Potential photos, illustrations, infographics and diagrams scrawled on dirty napkins all count.
- The best way to understand what we're looking for is probably not to email us and ask, but rather to surf our blog and latest issues.
Please include the word "pitch" in your subject line (plus relevant keywords for the medium, location and subject) or else we may file away your message with the hate mail and love letters.
Due to the high volume of pitches we receive, we unfortunately cannot respond to every one. However, we do read them and will get in touch if yours looks promising.
