PYLOT was started with the intention of creating a platform for the most intriguing and exciting new work from analogue photographers and writers.

If you would like to get involved, read our brief guidelines and then get in touch.

All images created with intentions of being displayed with PYLOT Magazine must be shot on analogue cameras, or must be created using an analogue process. No beauty retouching is allowed. By this we mean that you cannot administer any changes to the condition of the skin (spots, blemishes), eyes (brightening), teeth (whitening) or body (liquifying). Retouching on images is allowed at a basic level for things such as: colour correction, brightness and contrast adjustments.
Please send all proposed submissions in a singular PDF document otherwise they will not be considered.

We are always on the look out for writers to contribute to both online and print. If you have an idea for a story for online, please do get in touch to pitch a brief outline, alongside two or three examples of previous writing (these do not need to be published). For online, our articles are image led, and we only publish artwork or analogue imagery as accompaniment, which you will need to consider when pitching an idea.
If you do not have an idea, but would like to get in touch about writing for us, send some examples of your work and a little about yourself to submit@pylotmagazine addressed to Rachel and Anna to discuss opportunities.

The best way to discover our writing style is the writing itself. Please do familiarise yourself with our print magazine, as well as our longer read features and interviews online.
Writers must be fluent in written English.

Disclaimer: Please note, when submitting a project (photography and/or writing) to be published online that it must not have been published elsewhere. If the work has been published in part elsewhere – including your own website / personal portfolio – you must let us know when submitting. If you are pitching to other magazines and we have agreed to run the project first, the story becomes exclusive to us, and you may not publish the project elsewhere. After stories have been published on PYLOT, excluding fashion editorials, they may be published elsewhere: one week after our go-live date, and crediting PYLOT Magazine as the source.
Titles of stories run on PYLOT may not be re-appropriated as titles of your project. Excerpts and quotes may not be used from either online or print without full credit to both the author and PYLOT Magazine.
PYLOT Magazine reserve the right to remove stories if they are found to have been fraudulently published elsewhere, both before and after submission.
