PRINT • ONLINE • SOCIAL• PODCASTS • VIDEO • VIRTUAL EVENTS
Since 1975, IMAGE has been a leading voice in Irish media and society. From a single print publication 46 years ago, IMAGE has evolved to become the mixed media publisher we know today.
We publish two flagship print titles – IMAGE and Image Interiors – four and two times a year, respectively. We publish daily on image.ie, a website redeveloped in 2021 with next generation voices and fresh content pillars. We have highly-engaged social media channels and a comprehensive database of ezine, website and print subscribers. We are a brand synonymous with quality and integrity.
In 2019, IMAGE Publications rebranded to IMAGE Media to better reflect our contemporary offering, and in the same year were nominated for both Most Modern Legacy Publisher and Best Use of Voice at the Digiday Publishing Awards in New York. We have transitioned a legacy brand into the modern era and now offer multi-platform content to our audience, and a full media service to clients and agencies.
From podcasts to print, video to virtual events, social to online, our award-winning team are multi-channel creators who bring ideas that matter and stories that captivate our community of informed, intelligent Irish women and men.
At IMAGE, we are all about big ideas and content with purpose. We apply magazine-thinking to our branded content studio, creating and executing partnerships and collaborations with style and substance. And not only do we create, curate and craft standard-setting content, but we have the established and engaged media channels to publish, broadcast and target that content to a combined audience of 1 million people a month.
We work on stories and with brands across our four core content pillars .
STYLE – fashion, beauty, accessories, design.
SELF – health, people, wellness, self-care.
AGENDA – business, culture, money, politics, life.
LIVING – interiors, property, food, drinks, travel, lifestyle, culture, entertainment, weddings.
How to pitch a piece to IMAGE
1. Get right to the point.
Let your potential editor know what they’re getting right at the top. Include your story topic in the subject line. Your pitch email should include your proposed writing format (personal essay, interview, investigative report, opinion piece, etc.), a possible title, which IMAGE pillar the piece would sit in (Agenda, Style, Living, Self), your planned sources, and an elevator pitch.
2. Provide a hook.
Explain (briefly) why someone would want to read the article you are pitching. What makes it different? Check that we haven’t written the piece already. If you have a target readership, identify them.
3. Link to writing samples.
We will want to see a past completed piece with your byline—ideally from a freelance writing job that was similar to the one you’re now pitching on. Make sure they are free of typos or grammatical errors!
