How to get published on CG Wires
All submissions will need to go through an internal review, and here are some of the things that will help us determine which posts we will eventually publish.
CG Wires is tightly focused on CG/VFX/Animation/Gaming stories and news content. We are looking for authors or writers who can write for us and we can publish original articles. We like to work with individual authors. If your startup founder or CEO is interested to write for us. That would be great. Bring them on and send them all the guidelines as mentioned below.
What gets approved
- Cite and link back to credible sources/resources that can substantiate your claims and ideas.
- Give relatable examples that help readers visualize the message you are trying to deliver to them.
- Know the target audience for your post and write with them in mind.
- Include images that complement the content of your post (only where possible)
Sounds easy, doesn’t it? But hold on to your keyboard, we have to reject a lot of posts because of a variety of reasons, and to prevent yours from being part of that statistic, find out why.
What gets rejected
The submissions we had to say no to:
- Cover topics that are irrelevant to what we usually publish, e.g., loans, choosing a curtain, how to hire a lawyer, essay writing assignments, biographies, science fiction stories, a science journal, the first chapter of a novel, etc.
- Are too short (blurb-length) or too long (novel-length) to be published.
- Are not written in English or are written in the form of English that the general population cannot seem to understand. Please ensure that you have proofread your post before submitting it.
- Contain elements that are against our publishing policy.
- Are found to be plagiarized, copied, or spun from another source. We respect the work of writers who make their trade through writing and reserve the right not to publish a compromised post.
- Are explicitly written to market or sell a product, tool, service, or app affiliated with the writer.
- Are not submissions at all. Please do not use the submissions link to enquire about how else to improve your chances of being published. We’ve already shared all our secrets with you. Be brave and send it in.
We reserve the right and final decision to reject a submission if the post is found to have problems that make it unsuitable for publication.
Remember to run a format check
- Do submit posts in plaintext, HTML or DOC (or equivalent forms) format.
- Ensure that the post is submitted with a full title.
- All images must be in JPG format.
- All images used must carry a credit line that links directly to their source page, not only the source website.
- Ensure that images used in your submission have their copyright sorted out or are free to use.
- Please ensure that image files are named in lowercase, and hyphenated (instead of underscored or with spaces) like this: tool-name.jpg.
- Zip all image files in a folder named IMAGES.
- The images should be in the highest possible resolution to ensure they do not appear blurry when published.
- Do supply us with your author’s bio, which will appear with your published post. An author’s picture is not necessary for guest posts.
Submit your post
Email us your submission. We prefer submissions as Google documents so that editors can easily provide feedback and guidance directly within your draft. You may also send us a plaintext file, a Markdown file, or a link to an HTML document. (Please do not send a ZIP file of assets unless requested by an editor.)
Here’s what happens after you Send:
- An editor will review your submission and determine whether it’s a potential fit. If so, the whole team will review and discuss it. This happens once a week.
- The editor will collect the team’s feedback and get back to you with notes. (We rarely accept an article the first time around, but we’ll tell you if we’re interested.)
- Once you’ve addressed our comments, send your revised draft back. The team will discuss it again and let you know if we want to accept it.
- If we accept your article, an editor will work closely with you on things like organization, argumentation, and style.
- We’ll schedule you for publication as soon as revisions are complete. We can’t give you a specific publication date until the article is almost ready to go live.
Before you submit, know that due to the number of posts we receive, we may not be able to reply to every submission. It is safe to assume that if we do not reply to you within two weeks, your submission will not be published.
Yes, we do accept sponsored posts at competitive prices, from the companies/studio who would like to increase their visibility while sponsoring great content. Please note that this is not like an advertising fee for your company but it helps to grow a strong brand name among our readers. For example, If a company/studio would like to share their startup journey from starting to the zenith, how they grow, what are the obstacles and challenges they face during their successful journey or about latest project.
