Freelance Contributions

We work with freelance creatives and commission two long form articles or pieces of visual communication a month.

Budget of £100 per piece of content.

Pitch requirements:

  • Working title
  • Outline the piece of content; story, angle, people featured
  • What it’ll bring to BABMAG
  • How it will be displayed on the website
  • Example of past work
  • Budget break down – how you will use the money (*spoiler* it can all go to you)

Please email your idea with the title and month you’re pitching for as the subject to submissions[at]babmag[dot]co[dot]uk

BABMAG operates with transparency and in community spirit. It is our mission to hear from a diverse range of voices and co-create a platform for the underrepresented. By implementing these ethics BABMAG hopes everyone we work with is creating content they love and are proud of.

At least 50% of the commissions will come from 18-25 year olds.


If you’d like to have your business or project featured on we will consider it for an advertorial. We will ask for a considered contribution to directly pay the writer and keep the platform running.

We can organise a photographer and ad space on the site at an additional cost.

Please email hello[at]babmag[dot]co[dot]uk for more information.

Local Reporters

Are you someone that keeps their ear to the ground? Got something happening on your turf – let us know!

Whilst we’re based in Digbeth, it’s important to us to represent not only Birmingham but the surrounding areas and communities too.

Unpaid Content

Using the BABMAG platform – if you have an idea for content that doesn’t fit into these categories there is still the opportunity to have your work published on the website.

Initial steps into the industry and having your work reviewed we’re aware can be hard to come by. If you’d like to submit an article or pitch an idea to our editors, our inbox is open. If we accept the content it will always be valued and your time taken seriously.

So far, BABMAG has operated purely through voluntary work and whilst we’re still growing, we’re sadly unable to pay every contributor.

This also applies to any photographers, videographers, illustrators and designers who would like to have their work seen.
