Sight Unseen is always on the lookout for interesting people and subjects to feature. We are open to anyone working in a creative field. To submit your work, please send low-res jpegs or a link to your website or portfolio to submissions [at] sightunseen [dot] com. We cannot respond to every submission we receive.

All coverage is at our sole discretion, and all sponsored posts are clearly marked as such on the site.
What to Submit
Please consider submitting story ideas with the following categories in mind, and be sure to submit low-res images:
ARTISTS’ PROOF: If you’re a professional designer, photographer, or artist who’s made work to keep rather than sell, including homemade objects or gifts for loved ones.
AT HOME WITH: If you have an interesting home interior with lots of personality. We are more interested in your possessions and inspirations at home than your taste in decorating.
EXCERPT: If you have a book, magazine, or exhibition you’d like us to excerpt.
FACTORY TOUR: If you own or are working with a factory on a project, and have professional or near-professional photos. Or, if you’d like to invite us to visit your factory.
INVENTORY: If you have an interesting collection, toolbox, or other group of objects that says something about your personality or creative process, and you’d like to visually catalog it.
INVITATION: If you would like to put together a custom creative project that can be presented digitally for sole publication on Sight Unseen.
SKETCHBOOK: If you keep an amazing sketchbook — or have done a series of sketches for a specific project — that goes beyond the obvious.
STUDIO VISIT: If your studio is visually intriguing, full of special details, and can communicate something about your creative process in photographs.
TECHNIQUE: If you employ a unique physical or conceptual technique in your work that you can trace throughout several of your projects.
THE MAKING OF: If you’ve created something with a riveting enough backstory or production process to hold a few hundred words.
THE VIEW FROM HERE: If you can look out the window of your studio and see something that’s spectacular, inspiring, or just pointedly mundane.
WHERE THEY’VE BEEN: If you’ve been inspired creatively by a trip or a location and documented it by way of photographs, drawings, etc.
