How to submit your projects to contemporist

A lot of people ask us how they can send us their projects, so here are the details…

We accept submissions for anything contemporary. We mostly feature architecture, interior design, furniture, lighting, home decor and art, but it can be anything, as long as it’s contemporary.

Here is what you should send us:

Photos and Images
– Send as many images as you have of your product or project that you are submitting. If it’s an architecture or interior design project, please include floor plans (if available).
– We like to receive as many images that you have, and they should be a minimum of 800 pixels wide.
– We prefer high resolution JPEG files, but can also work with TIF and PNG files.
– If you have a lot of photos and files, you can put them all in a .zip or .rar file
– Let us know any photographer credits that you would like us to include.

– Send a text description including the name of your product or project.
– Provide a link to your website.

How to send the files to us?
– An easy way to send a large number of files, is to use WeTransfer.com (it’s free!)
– On the WeTransfer website, just select the files you want to send us, then use [email protected] as the email address to send the files to.
– Instead of using WeTransfer, some people send us a link to their DropBox gallery. That also works.

We get a lot of submissions every day and we can’t reply to every submission we get just to tell you that we received it. If you sent it, we probably received it, and if we’re interested in featuring it, you will probably see it on contemporist within 2 days.

Thanks, contemporist.

We added sharing buttons!

We received a lot of emails from our readers requesting social media sharing buttons, so we have now added them on the post pages.

Please test them, and let us know if you experience any problems with them. Thanks!
