Contributors

At Onyx Hearts, we offer a number of opportunities for industry members to share the benefit of their experience through contributed guest content on a wide variety of topics related to streetwear centric vibes across music, sports, celebs, clothing and business.


Contributor Requirements

Contributors must be professionals working in the field that they are writing about, or in a closely related field. We think of our sites as the voice for a community of streetwear fanatics, and our contributors share their knowledge to discuss important issues and help move the industry forward.

Our audience appreciates highly exclusive content which can be immediately applied to their own online style and life. We are mainly looking for:

  • Exclusive industry insider stories
  • Intelligently crafted Top 10 or 101 articles
  • Thought-leadership pieces about the future of the industry
  • Strategic pieces on industry influencers, entertainers and athletes
  • New release information on any and everything streetwear

 

Commitment Levels

Regular Contributors
Are assigned to an ongoing column to appear at a regular interval (4 weeks is most typical, though we will consider other intervals). This type of columnist must commit to writing regularly on the same topic for six to 12 months and must meet deadlines consistently to maintain their assigned spot on the editorial calendar. We prioritize Regular Columnists when editing and seek to publish their pieces on the scheduled publication date. Contributors with a lesser commitment may not have as much visibility as to exactly when their piece will appear.

Ad-Hoc Contributors
Must provide a minimum of three contributed pieces for standalone features and Top 10 articles over the course of 3-6 months. Contributors can irregularly submit ideas or already-written content when they have ideas they want to write about, or they can commit to a regular schedule for the duration of their relationship with us.

Special Contributors
May contribute on a one-off basis if they have a very unique perspective, can share exclusive knowledge, or wish to comment on a particular important or timely topic. (CEOs, sports agents, executive assistants, brand insiders, entourage members of well-known brands, athletes, singers and celebs would qualify as having unique perspectives, provided their topic was relevant.)

 

Editorial Standards

Full disclosure of agency / client / partner relationships is required at all times, and our editors reserve the right to remove self-promotional content and links, as well as make significant edits to content and headlines.
All accepted contributors must agree to provide original content, with exclusive rights granted to Onyx Hearts Media for a period of TWO years.
If accepted as a contributor, you will receive writer guidelines and instructions, as well as a formal writer agreement to execute before any content is published on our properties.

If this sounds like a good fit for you, please email your resume or why you should be accepted to: contributors@onyxhearts.com and we’ll consider your application.
