Get Featured

Would you like to get featured on Creative Boom? There are many opportunities available, all of which we've 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 that you have more chance of success if you follow our submission guidelines. We also do not accept pitches via social media – via email is the best and only route, thank you.

Note to PR professionals – we've created some specific PR Pitch Guidelines to help you through the process. Here, we outline more of who we are, what we cover, and who reads us – to help you tailor your pitches effectively. However, if you want guaranteed coverage, then please contact our Advertising team to discuss options. From display advertising and sponsored content to partnerships and industry reports, we can provide one-off or longer-term campaigns to meet your goals. Recent advertisers include Google, Microsoft, Huawei, Adobe, Canon, University of the Arts London, Samsung and Wix.

Showcasing your creative work

Are you an artist, designer or maker? We feature work from both established and emerging creative professionals under our Inspiration section, while any breaking stories are shared under News.

Submit your work by emailing [email protected] with the following information:

  • State the creative category in which you'd like to be featured: Advertising, Animation, Art & Culture, Crafts, Digital, Fashion, Film, Graphic Design, Illustration, Photography, Product Design or Publishing.

  • Your full name, location and bio

  • A link to your website or online portfolio

  • A description of the work you'd like us to feature (or a press release, if possible)

  • At least six JPEGs or PNGs of your work; minimum 2,600 pixels wide and RGB format for screens (please note, we don't like white backgrounds or borders – if you're sending product or lifestyle shots, please supply images with grey or coloured backgrounds)

  • Please note, for moving imagery, we accept GIFs (minimum 1,000 pixels wide; no more than 10MB) and MP4s. If necessary, include a link to any accompanying video on YouTube or Vimeo.

  • Help us out a little further by telling us more about you, where you studied (if anywhere), your style and inspirations, what you're passionate about – the more information you provide, the better. Seriously, the more time you spend on this part of the pitch, it really helps us to determine next steps.

If you're an agency or studio and have a press release about your latest graphic design or advertising project, please send everything we need (including images and videos) to [email protected].
