      Your article, image or video will be reviewed to ensure it meets BDmag’s publishing guidelines, and if approved will be published within two weeks unless otherwise notified.  If your contribution is time sensitive, please make this known in your request and we will do our best to ensure it is published accordingly.

      If your article doesn’t meet our publishing guidelines, we will endeavour to respond to you within two weeks of receiving it to give feedback and work with you on a resolution. Our goal is to help you get published!

      Minor revisions that do not compromise the integrity of the article, such as correcting typos or grammatical errors, may be made to written articles, but any major changes will be discussed with the author prior to publishing.

      We give preference to original articles, so please advise at the time of submission if your article has been previously published (including on your own blog).

      Yes, please do!  Where appropriate, please credit that it was first published on BDmag.  Feel free to use BDmag as a springboard to hone your article writing skills and start pitching further afield.  We want you to succeed!

      As often as you like!  We want BDmag to be a platform to showcase businesses, share expertise and inspire others.  However, please note that we may not be able to publish all contributions.

      Guest contributors are required to supply their own images to accompany articles.  When supplying third party stock images, please supply proof of permission for use. If you do not have suitable images, we can provide a quote for photography and you retain full ownership of all images.

      Videos must be of a professional standard and must not be advertorial.

      If you are engaging a videographer for a corporate video, you may like to consider editing a short version specifically for BDmag.  Feel free to brainstorm with us in the creative stage.  Quotes for videography services available upon request.

      Please don’t send TVCs or self-filmed social media style videos.

      Depending on the number of guest contributions we receive, it may not always be possible to have a dedicated post to social media for all content that is published to the BDmag website.

      No, guest contributors do not receive payment.

      There is no requirement to advertise with BDmag in exchange for publication.  All contributions will be assessed on their merit for their genuine newsworthiness or interest to our readers.
