submit a story to arch india

So you want us to feature your project/story on our website? That’s amazing! We love to voice Creators, Changemakers and Chroniclers on our website.

What Kind of Stories do we accept?

Arch India believes in publishing original content, created by our authors and exclusive to our platform. We document India’s arts, crafts, and heritage and also publish articles on architecture, design and urbanism interventions.

At the same time, we love publishing stories by individuals about their initiatives, projects, thoughts and experiences. We accept story submissions in the form of a few images, a little text, maybe even a candid conversation – and publish an article about it on our website. So, basically, we are telling your story in a new way after you share it with us.

Here’s what we accept and publish:

Stories on Architecture

We feature descriptive articles on the works of Indian Architects and Design Studios, apart from opinion pieces, interviews, initiatives, documentation and discussions, including Commercial, Residential, Industrial, Conservation, Landscape and Interior Architecture.

Stories on Design

We publish descriptive articles on the works of Indian Designers and Design Studios, spanning Interior, Furniture, Product, Industrial, Communications, UX and more.

Stories on Art

We feature articles on Indian arts and crafts, spanning visual, material, literary and performing arts, spanning the wide diversity of the country, focused on both traditions and trends.

Stories of Heritage

We feature stories of cities and villages, monuments and ruins, traditions, practices and beliefs, draped in its rich history and wanting to be discovered, explored and appreciated.

Stories on Urbanism

We publish articles focused on the urban environment, the aspects of sustainability, inclusive growth and development and the social, economic and design aspects of such growth, including changemakers and urbanists who are contributing significantly to India’s cities and towns.

So, how to go about it?

First, some formalities

By submitting your content to Arch India for publishing, you agree to our Terms and Conditions. View them HERE.

Next, The Process

We prefer submissions sent over email. You can send text and images of your project to the following contact:

Sakshi Singh (Communications and Editorial):

We do not have a tight format you need to stick to, but we would appreciate if your submission had a few basics:

  • If you are submitting a story about your Documentation/Project/Initiative/Art:
    • Make sure to include at least 2 images/photographs with the right credits mentioned. The images must be of good quality (at least 2880 px size)
    • Add links and some text about the project either as a separate document or within the mail body.
    • You may send zipped images or links to filesharing sites (Google Drive/Dropbox and so on), but do send a few sample images in your email just for a preview.
  • If you are submitting an Opinion/Essay/Interview/Thoughts:
    • Send in your write-up to the above-mentioned email as a separate attachment in Word/Google Doc
    • If you share any images, make sure you have the right credits mentioned. The images must be of good quality (at least 2880 px size)

The more pictures you send us, the merrier. Our readers love seeing as much as reading (maybe they prefer seeing more).

The Editor at Arch India will have full right to change, edit and omit any part of your submission for the purpose of keeping up with the website’s style, theme and content. Read more about our Terms and Conditions of Submission HERE.

What Next?

We make sure we publish all stories written to us if they meet our vibe and content standards. We don’t mind if you haven’t penned down an essay – THAT’S OUR JOB! We just appreciate a short description of your idea, inspiration, objective or project.

Do send us project and image credits though, we like to credit everyone involved. You MUST ensure that you have the necessary copyright permissions for all the material you submit.

Thank you for submitting to Arch India!

Send your story in, and give us a few days to publish it on our website. Go and share it on social media and on your website/blog. Cheers!
