Submit a story

So you want us to publish your project? Fantastic! Please read the notes below to ensure you send us what we need and how we need it.

We like submissions via email

Send your images and text to:

US architects and designers, please send text and images to:

We don't have formal criteria for selecting projects but in general are looking for content that is fresh, innovative, newsworthy, has a good story behind it and fantastic images. We get tons of submissions and we can't reply to everyone, although we do look at everything.


How to submit a project

To submit a project for consideration, simply email us a selection of good jpegs (at least 3000 pixels on the shortest sides), some text about the project and links where appropriate. Please have a look at our copyright policy before submitting material.

If you need to send zipped images or links to filesharing sites, please send a few sample images in your email to give us an idea of your project. Please don't scrimp on the number of images – the more, the better.

Then what happens?

If we like the look of the project we'll be in touch. It may take us some time to get back to you. It's fine to send us the odd gently reminder - we are only human and we do overlook things sometimes.

Meanwhile we'll add you to our contributors mailing list (a list of people who've submitted projects to us or have been published). You'll therefore receive the occasional email from us.

If you do not want to receive these emails, please make this clear in your submission. It's fine, we understand. Or you can unsubscribe at any time.

We like exclusivity

We are more likely to publish projects that are sent to us exclusively. If you are offering us an exclusive, please make this clear in your submissions email.

We like movies

If you have a movie related to your project, send it in! We usually upload submitted movies to our own channels (mostly YouTube and Facebook but sometimes others) rather than embedding from other accounts. We may edit movies but we'll ask for your permission first.

We like plans, drawings and sketches

Plans, sections and sketches are very popular with our readers, so please include them if you can.

We like to credit everyone

Send us project credits! Especially for the images. We are rarely able to pay for photography but we will happily give credits, links and full copyright details where appropriate. Many photographers happily give us free imagery as publication on Dezeen is a good way to promote their work and often leads to commissions from other publications.

Share share share

When we've published your project please share like crazy on social media, newsletters, your website and so on. It will help your project get more visits and more attention. Don't be shy!

Get involved in the comments

Hopefully people will comment on your project in our comments section. Hopefully the comments will be intelligent and constructive. Even if they're not please get involved by responding, challenging and generally engaging with our audience. See our comments policy for details of how we manage comments.
