UP Magazine accepts story pitches year-round for digital publication on a rolling basis. We are fairly open to ideas, though the types of stories we’re most interested in are profiles on emerging and mid-tier established artists conducted through in-person interviews. We are also open to listicles, city guides, and historical write-ups. Read through some of our columns & past content to get a sense of what we’re looking for.
For online articles, we look for ~1000 words + 10-15 photos. Contributors are paid market rates, with incentives for growth.
Submit Articles to email@example.com
In particular, as we expand our global audience, we’re looking for coverage from the following cities: Denver, Miami, Austin, Chicago, London, Paris, Sydney, Tel Aviv & Hong Kong.
For photos, we accept submissions in limited windows relevant to our publishing calendar.
Currently, we are open to photos relevant to our 2 upcoming print issues:
Issue 6: Graffiti [CLOSED July 15th]
Issue 7: Fashion & Design – Deadline February 1st, 2024
Please send photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you photos are labeled with the artists & photographers instagram name.
Monthly Art Submissions
Each month we host open calls for art submissions, based on different themes. We usually announce the new contest the first week of the month, and publish the beginning of the next. Stay tuned for the contests to come!
NOTE: Art submitted outside these monthly contests will not be accepted.
