FOR ARTWORKS (photographs, illustrations or videos): Send us your work to perspektif@ppia-unimelb.org and tell us how your work is relevant to the current theme. 

  1. We currently do not limit the number of artworks we receive from one contributor. 
  2. Your submissions must be in high-resolution (minimum: 3 MB). The format should either be in JPG or PNG.
  3. If you were to submit artwork(s) and have written captions for those artwork(s), please send us a Word document containing both the captions and their associated artwork(s). 
    • You still have to send us the high-resolution artwork(s) in order for us to print the best quality.
  4. Your work(s) might be subject to editing by our design team. By submitting to us, you consent to this condition.

FOR WRITING: We’d prefer it if you pitch your ideas to perspektif@ppia-unimelb.org first, to make sure that no one’s taken the topic you want!

  1. Unless you have made an arrangement with the editor in charge, your piece(s) should be around 500-1200 words in length (excluding poetry). 
  2. You can submit up to three poems and/or short pieces (< 500 words). However, we can only accommodate for one lengthy feature (>750 words) per contributor.
  3. The format of your submission(s) must be in Word document.
  4. We implore that you provide direct links to your sources for data in non-fiction submissions (including opinions) to allow editors to fact-check. No Wikipedia links please! 
    • Refer to these sources in-text (eg. “According to The Medical Journal of Australia,…”).
  5. Please check your work for grammar and spelling mistakes before submitting.
  6. Once we receive your submission, our editors will help with editing your article. However, it does not guarantee that your article will be published in our magazine. Your edited article will undergo further selection process, where only a select few will be printed. 
    • Please respect our meritocratic editing and selection process as this is done to ensure the content flow, quality, and coherence of each volume.

For more enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us via our email.

We look forward to seeing your work!
