Write for SuperRare Magazine
SuperRare Magazine is a digital publication at the cutting edge of the cryptoart revolution. We welcome pitches exploring the intersections of art, technology, finance and community in the emerging Web3 world. With Web3 ownership and distribution built into many of our initiatives, we reflect the radical cultures and disruptive technologies that birthed us; telling unexpected stories from our decentralized future.
For approved articles ranging from 800 to 2,000 words, our rates span from $250 to $1/word up to $1,500, depending on the content category and the author’s experience.
SuperRare Magazine currently publishes thematically-centric content. Our content cycles typically run for one month at a time (occasionally longer), and we specifically seek articles that align with future focuses. We post upcoming topics here and update them regularly. You’re still welcome to send ideas that fall out of scope (you might even inspire us to pursue something!), but we’re much more likely to greenlight an article that fits within a planned content cycle.
- Cryptoart’s future starts now: Telling the story of what makes the cryptoart movement special, and how it differs from other NFT projects
- Cryptoart revolutionizes provenance: Blockchain not only brings provenance to digital art, but provenance narratives can become part of an artwork’s value. What examples of this exist? What will be the longer term implications, particularly in respect to the benefits of secondary royalties?
- Socially conscious cryptoart: How is cryptoart reaching and helping communities around the world? How can artwork sales, DAO missions, or project utility be structured to benefit communities in need? What examples exist?
- New digital mediums: Blockchain brings provenance and payments to digital art projects. What new mediums are benefiting from this development? Interactive artworks? AI artists? 3D experience? In what directions are we headed next?
