SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

ÁJÍFA focuses on mindful and meaningful digital consumption. We offer our community a well curated, intentional and inspiring selection of content, which is refreshed on a monthly basis.

We are currently accepting submissions to three of our four corners. Please note that due to the volume of submissions we receive, it is not possible for us to reply to everyone or to provide feedback. If you have not received a reply within 5 working days, unfortunately it means that your submission was unsuccessful.

Please note that, with the exception of our Cinema corner, we only accept work on an exclusive basis. For the avoidance of doubt, this means that the submitted work has not been published by other platforms. You can find the criteria outlined in further detail below.

Any submissions received via DMs on social media will not be acknowledged.
