We’re inviting journalists and writers to pitch articles for commission in December 2021. We’ll commission in three rounds:

  • Pitches received February 1, 2021
  • Pitches received May 1, 2021
  • Pitches received September 1, 2021

We pay $300 to $1000 US dollars per article, depending on your topic and profile as a writer.

What to pitch

Audience:
 Generalist senior business audience, assuming no specialist technical knowledge, in any country, any industry.

Topics: In general, we cover technology, business and cybersecurity. This year our priority topics include future of work, future of society and digital transformation.

Formats:

  • Interviews with movers and shakers in technology
  • Interviews with tech start-ups or established businesses using technology to improve their industry or the world
  • Opinion pieces on challenges businesses could be facing (with an angle about technology)
  • Primers introducing a new trend, technology or business practice
  • Ideas and copy for infographics (we’ll take care of design.)


Always include expert knowledge (your own or from interviews) – we won’t commission pure desk research or listicles – and a cybersecurity angle if relevant.

Length: 400 to 2000 words
