We invite contributors, photographers and writers from all over the world to share with us stories from wherever they’ve travelled, got lost or found home. Send us your material to consider for publication on our platforms.
Please submit your photos in low resolution and/or text, in english or spanish, for our online stories by sending us an email. A large edit of 15-25 images is preferred. The photos of the story need to be exclusive for Lost Immigrants, meaning they have to be unpublished, preferably. A minimum of 1000 px width is required for preview formats: .jpg, .pdf or Dropbox links (no Google Drive single images).
We want to hold space for those looking to dedicate a few words to that place which they hold close to their heart and share their story. A story that we believe is meant to be heard by this ever-growing and ever-evolving community looking to bring walls down and embrace the unfamiliar anywhere they go. Our general approach is to share stories centered on the experience itself. Essays don’t have to be about a specific place — although details are always good. We will happily review all the submissions we receive, but we will only select those that we think are aligned with our project. The story should fit the overall vibe and mood of our site, whilst keeping the personal style of the contributor.
Size: A minimum of 2400 px in width is required for final images. Format: .jpg, .tif, .zip, WeTransfer or Dropbox links.
Resolution: 300 dpi Color: sRGB – RGB (even if they are black/white)
Text: Please include your complete revised story, with the chosen title (in case you’re writing for a LOST IN project) and final credits for staff, contributors and everything we should include. Also, please write a small bio of yourself (up to a 100 words) for us to include it on the project. This should be written in a simple file: PDF, TextEdit, Word, Pages.
Social Media: In the text/credits document include the link to your website/portfolio and the Instagram usernames for the photographer and any other contributor.
