The articles on the site are written by The Culture Trip’s team and by our contributors from across the world. So far people from about 70 different countries have been contributing articles, some of whom have become regular contributors. We would love you to become a contributor too and help build our unique global treasure chest of art and culture! Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Culture Trip aims to showcase the world’s best art and culture by covering 4 broad domains for each country: art, literature, film and music. We also accept articles on travel, architecture, photography, dance and design. Submitted articles range from overview pieces on the literary giants of a given country, to features on its contemporary artists, groundbreaking film directors or iconic musicians.
If you would like to write an article and you have a suggestion, please get in touch. If you are unsure about a suitable topic, just pick one from our suggestions bank:
- Sano, the Filipino Banksy (Philippines > Art)
- Claribel Alegria (Nicaragua / El Salvador > Literature)
- Abderrahmane Sissako (Mauritania > Film)
- Driss Ouadahi (Algeria > Art)
The style and tone of your article(s) should be scholarly and critical whilst avoiding being too dry and theoretical. They can range from 750 to 1500 words in length. When possible, they should include one or more video clips (YouTube or Vimeo), relevant to the topic. We also like to add some actual books and films relating to the article, so make a few suggestions if you can.
All contributions are subject to oversight by The Culture Trip’s editors but, when published, you will be granted a by-line acknowledging your authorship. The Culture Trip can help you build an online portfolio and, if you submit more than 3 articles, we will also profile you in our Regular Contributors section and further increase your exposure to our global audience in more than 200 countries.
We also run a monthly Writing Competition, in which you can enter your article if suitable. The winner receives a free Travel Bag of three books or films from a country of choice. The winning article is also featured on our homepage for a week, published in our weekly newsletter and promoted via our social media channels.
