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.

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.

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

  • State the creative category in which you'd like to be featured: Advertising, Architecture, Art & Culture, Crafts, Digital, Fashion, Film, Gaming, 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.

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 to [email protected].

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

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

Unfiltered and light-hearted, 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 include Anthony Burrill (recorded in the depths of the Design Museum in London), Abbey Lossing (who we met in New York just before the pandemic hit), Dapo Adeola (who is now working with Disney), Debbie Millman (who is full of wisdom and reassurance), Murugiah (lots of fun and inspiration), 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 currently underway with guests including Kieron Lewis, Gail Anderson, Alex Gamsu Jenkins, Niki Groom, and Timothy Goodman. 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].
