We are always interested in our readers’ projects and their tried and tested tips for home improvements.
There are various categories which we are accepting submissions for, at the present time of writing.
Our Home Projects section, the Disaster Area page and our monthly Most Improved Competition.
We additionally accept other articles and pieces, on a discretionary basis.
We feature up to five ongoing home makeover projects, per issue. To be included in one of our editions, please submit a photograph of your project for consideration.
Please upload no fewer than five clear images of your project, showing different angles and stages of completion.
We print between five and ten photos, per project. Do not try and send us more than fifteen images initially. If our editors require more, they will contact you.
If you are looking to upload material of your disaster area or a project which went wrong, we would love to hear from you.
As you know, we are looking for words as well as photographs – so please include no more than five hundred words on what went wrong and how it occurred, to make a cautionary tale for our readers.
Write in clear, concise English and short paragraphs.
Images must be sharp and easy to make out. We do not require more than six photographs of your disaster area.
MOST IMPROVED COMPETITION
The deadline for our Most Improved home makeover is the twentieth of each month.
To take part, you need to send us five clear images of the before and five pictures of the after. Our judges need to see for themselves the work that was undertaken and how much better the end result was.
A brief explanation of what is happening in each image, should also be included in this upload.
We accept unsolicited articles, however, in the first instance it is a good idea to contact our Feature Editor for guidance.
We would strongly advise you speak firstly with the commissioning editor and send an outline for your article to begin with.
We publish pieces of between five hundred words and two thousand words. However, for a new contributor, we usually prefer to keep submissions on the shorter end.
Simply send a short email, describing the article you want to write to Julia Blanchford, Features Editor.
If you have examples of your published writing, please link to them in this email.
Alternatively, you can upload finished submissions directly to her.
Please remember to include all your contact details, when submitting any material to our publication for consideration.
