You can stay on the outside if you like, but.......
IBWM hasn’t won awards by accident, and we haven’t reached millions of readers in over 150 countries for nothing. We can’t guarantee that IBWM is the most influential football website on the planet, but we’re definitely in the top one.
IBWM features regularly on the BBC, ESPN, Sky and many other media networks. We've made the front pages of the FC Barcelona and UEFA websites and make regular appearances in national newspapers and on television and radio across the globe. Each week dozens of organisations contact us for information, opinion and analysis.
IBWM has torn down the wall between mainstream media and independent blogs while maintaining traditional journalistic values. The revolution is underway, IBWM is the front line. We do things differently here, now is the time to join us.
IBWM wants you
We want to collaborate with talented writers, authors, journalists, bloggers, photographers and artists that can contribute regular articles, galleries or one-off guest pieces. We work closely with World Soccer magazine and a number of other media outlets around the world. If you are a professional looking for a home, want to break into the industry, raise your profile, or just enjoy writing about football, IBWM is the best place you can be. No experience is necessary and we don’t need your CV.
What should I write about?
It’s entirely up to you, as long as it is football related, past or present. Any club, any country, any player, any match, any region, any continent, any era. Articles should be around 1000 words minimum and we maintain a global outlook which encompasses anything and everything.
Will I get paid?
IBWM can’t pay you directly but we regularly syndicate feature articles to other media outlets that, if your work is selected, will pay. Most of our writers have received job offers on the strength of articles they’ve submitted to us and seen their profile soar. We’ll link your site, blog, book or twitter on anything published. If you write for IBWM you WILL get noticed.
What do I do next?
What about photographs and artwork?
You can pitch ideas to us via our contact page, but if you'd like to show off your stadium/venue shots on our Estadio page just tag your images with IBWM on Flickr or use the hashtag #IBWM on Instagram. We'll only display and credit your pictures, we won't try to sell them or anything crazy like that. Anyone can participate, try it.
We can't promise to publish everything we receive, but if you'd like the opportunity to feature alongside Dan Brennan, Iain Macintosh, Kay Murray, Dave Hartrick, Juliet Jacques, Adam Digby, Jeff Livingstone, Chris Nee, Stuart Fuller, Jack Lang, Ryan Keaney, Sam Kelly, Ben Shave and over four hundred others, get in touch.
