Use of Images

Images will automatically make your feature more appealing and stand out amongst the crowd. If you have any images you’d like to include alongside your feature, please include them in your email.

Ideally, we’d love your images to be high resolution, which would result in no compromise to the image quality.

Copy Guidelines

We ask that you send in your copy as a Word Document and as an email attachment.

Please provide your full name and contact details in the header of the document.

Original Content

We request that any content or photos you send us has not been previously published.

Please do not send us an article if you have sent it to another magazine for consideration; unless you have received confirmation that the article will not be published by them.

Copy Checking & Amendments

Before we publish any content, it will be proof read and checked to avoid any mistakes. To speed up this process, we kindly request that features are copy checked prior to sending as well.

We want to provide the best content we can, and we’re sure you do too.

Lead Times

We require all articles to be submitted at least 2 months before the publication deadline.
Specific dates will be agreed upon once you’ve contacted us with an interest to contribute to the magazine.

Unpublished Content

It’s not something we want to do but if we cannot, for any reason, publish your work; we’ll make sure to provide you with feedback as to why this was the case.

We accept articles on a speculative basis so even if we have expressed an interest in, or given you the go-ahead on a proposed article, we cannot guarantee its publication.

If content does go unpublished, we will return ownership of copy to the author, within 6 months, unless otherwise agreed.

Ownership of copyright

Once copy has been submitted and published, Bee Green will own the licence to publish and use the article(s) across our website, social media and other marketing collateral. However, we will always credit the author to the content.

If content is re-used as part of a work portfolio by the author, we request that you credit the work with:
This article was published in Bee Green Lifestyle Magazine, Date [e.g. DD-MM-YYYY] and [direct link to feature online].

If the article is shared on your website or press section, please only use the direct link to the article and credit and reference it with: This article was published in Bee Green Lifestyle Magazine, Date [e.g. DD- MM-YYYY] and [direct link to feature online].

In return for your contribution

In return for contributing to the magazine, we will include a short biography on all contributors. This will include a link to your blog or website.

We will also publicise you on Social Media and in our Newsletters, to get yourself and your brand/blog known.

Contributors Bio

When submitting your article, please also send across a short bio of yourself (between 25-50 words) and the link to your blog or website.

This bio will be published alongside the featured article.

Kindly Note

This is not a paid opportunity as we are unable to offer monetary compensation for contributions at the moment. However, we regularly consider our options; so if/when this changes, we’ll update our terms accordingly.

Unsolicited Articles

If you’re feeling brave and are familiar with the topics we cover and our ethos, we’re happy to welcome unsolicited articles from our regular readers or influencers in the industry.

It would be advisable to make yourself familiar with our content, so that you have a better idea of what Bee Green’s content revolves around, while ensuring you don’t write an article on a topic already covered.

However, if you believe that you have a different angle you’d like to cover, which hasn’t already been touched upon, then that’s brilliant!

Lead Times

We aim to respond to unsolicited articles submissions within 3 months from the date of receipt of the email. Due to the high volume of submissions that we receive, we shall only respond to those whose articles we are interested in publishing.

Once we have confirmed our interest, we shall aim to publish the article within 6 months from the confirmation date – this is due to our editorial timeline schedule.
