Submission Guidelines

If you'd like to get featured on Creative Boom, many opportunities are available, as outlined below.

As we receive such a high volume of emails, we can not personally respond to everyone. If your submission is successful, we will be in touch. Please note, you have more chance of success if you follow our submission guidelines.

Note to PR professionals – we love you and want to do our best to help your client get featured. We can't answer every email, but if you send us everything we need the first time, including a link to download images, that would be very helpful. We look forward to hearing from you.

Want to nominate yourself or someone else for The Creative Boom Podcast?

Hosted by our founding editor Katy Cowan, our podcast features fun and honest conversations with a diverse mix of creatives to inspire your own career.

Unfiltered, light-hearted and occasionally bonkers, you'll hear how other artists and designers navigate their profession, how they succeed and how they sometimes fail. There is no room for egos here, and we're certainly not highbrow, so whilst it's nice to talk about work, it's also great to find out more about our guests and their personal lives. And who knows where the conversation might go! You'll laugh, you might cry but hopefully, come away from each episode with a renewed sense of purpose and confidence to go out there and thrive.

Guests so far have included Anthony Burrill (recorded in the depths of the Design Museum in London), Abbey Lossing (who we met in New York before the pandemic hit), Dapo Adeola, Debbie Millman, Murugiah, and so much more.

With a five-star rating on Apple Podcasts, our podcast has been downloaded more than 220,000 times since launching in early 2020, with monthly downloads and streams estimated at 15,333. Reaching an audience of four million, we're currently in the top 10 0f Apple Podcasts' charts for Design.

Season Three is due to launch this October. We've now wrapped up our guest list, but if you think you or someone you know would be an exciting podcast guest in future, please let us know via [email protected].
