Call for Contributors

Loco Mag is seeking talented writers, photographers, videographers, designers, and interviewers to contribute to our latest issue! Loco is a lifestyle and culture magazine always on the hunt for new articles, photo spreads, and fresh takes on student perspectives. We’re not strictly a news publication, and we want to hear your voice and read your stories.

Our theme for our newest issue is Countdown. 3 … 2 … 1 … GO!

We want stories about how you spend time patiently counting the days until a major event in your life takes place, or perhaps a 24-hour diary for our 24th issue of someone famous or interesting! Try your hand at tackling an in-depth piece on how you think time is just one huge, pointless construction, or look into the different cultural conceptions of time and how they differ across time-zones. Have a bucket list on hand of cool things you should see and do before you die? Give it to us. This is also your chance to make a timelapse video that’s actually amazing and not the same nature-in-motion–wow-a-sunset thing we see all the time. You might also want to put together a playlist of songs with countdowns in them — go wild!

Use the theme “Countdown” as an inspiration, and interpret it however you like. We want to hear your opinions, whether that be through photojournalism, writing, or videos. Uncensor yourself and let us know how you really feel. Here at Loco, we want your perspective to come first. Take our theme, put a spin on it, and let your creativity shine.

Our sections include Travel, Lifestyle, Lists, Photo/Video, Entertainment, and Features. Features typically run around 2,500 words. Have more than that? We’re an electronic publication so space is unlimited. We’ll accept anything from a 250 word photospread to a 500 word interview. Just make sure to have a strong voice and be creative.

Your final article will need to be submitted no later than May 10, 2016. You can find where to pitch your idea under the “Submissions” tab on the Loco Mag homepage.

Send any questions to editor@locomag.com, and be sure to follow us on Twitter @locomag and like us on Facebook, too.
