We publish daily articles on our website that focus on the intersection of visual culture with gender, mental health, education, sexuality, money and the internet. Many of the pieces that we commission do not focus on one single exhibition or artist, and instead explore wider themes or trends.
Below are guidelines for pitching online stories to us; articles for print are commissioned separately.
What We’re Looking For
We are seeking original stories with a clear visual arts angle. When pitching, please consider what makes this story unique, and why you would be the right person to tell it.
The writing that we publish is knowledgeable, personal and wide-ranging, but it must also be inviting and accessible to a non-art audience. At Sunday, Someday Record we believe that art and visual culture should be open to all, and while we value expertise, we are looking for writers who can also effectively communicate their ideas to a diverse readership.
The following article types and editorial series are open to pitches.
We are looking for bold new perspectives on issues that relate to the visual arts, written from a clearly articulated first-person perspective.
In these pieces, writers choose a theme or trend to explore through numerous works of art, as well as in other forms of culture, such as television, cinema, fashion and music. Our Observations pieces often make unusual or surprising connections between seemingly disparate artists and the wider world. Please note that the selection of artworks in these pieces must be focused primarily on the contemporary scene.
Our investigations take a look at aspects of the creative industry that are rarely considered, bringing together a range of perspectives from multiple interviewees.
What We’re Not Looking For
Unlike other art magazines, we don’t publish reviews, so please don’t email us asking to review a current or upcoming exhibition. However, we do accept pitches for pieces that take a new exhibition as a starting point to explore a wider theme—this piece on mushrooms in art is a good example.
Please don’t simply forward press releases or press trip invitations with a request to cover these. It is likely that we will have received the same release. If you would like to send a pitch based on a press release, please consider what your angle will be, and what makes it an original story that will work for Sunday, Someday Record.
We don’t consider pieces for publication that have already been written. Instead, we work with writers from the point of pitching and commissioning, in order to shape the story and ensure that it is right for our audience.
