Source is a quarterly photography magazine, available in print and as a digital edition, published in Belfast, Northern Ireland. They are always looking for new writers to contribute to Source. If you’ve not written for Source before they invite you to send an article. If they like it they will either publish it or commission you to write articles in the future. Source will give £500 to the writer of the selected winning article.
Most of the writing in Source takes a specific form: book reviews, exhibition reviews or texts introducing sets of pictures, so these would be good models to follow. But they are also interested in others forms of writing so if you want to submit something in a different form then please do. An interest in photography is not only about the photographs that appear in books and exhibitions, it touches most aspects of life and Source like to read about those encounters too. This could be an article about a particular photograph of historical, aesthetic or biographical interest to you. It could be about some cultural or philosophical aspect of photography. It could be something they’ve not thought about.
Source enjoy writing that is thoughtful, funny, well researched and surprising. It could be personal or dispassionate. It could be fun, or deadly serious. It might shed new light on something they know or introduce them to something they’ve never heard of before.
1. You should not have written for Source before.
2. The article must be no more than 700 words.
