Once, possibly twice, each year we're handing IBWM entirely over to you in the form of one of our assignments. In 2015 we asked for submissions for our New York and Sheffield Projects and you certainly didn't disappoint  - thanks to everyone involved. So, where can we go next?


Not just home to two of the most decorated clubs in European football history, but also an epicentre of cutting edge design, an artistic and cultural beacon that has radiated influence across the globe for centuries.  If you're looking for stories, you won't be short here.

Milan is the theme for our third IBWM Assignment but the angle that you use for your article is entirely your call.  The city offers a myriad of fantastic fables and we'd like to tap into what you know, football or not.

If you’ve something special on Franco Baresi, Caravaggio, Mario Prada, Giuseppe Meazza, Silvio Berlusconi, Umberto Boccioni, The Last Supper, Pirelli Calendars, Krisma, Greta Scaachi or anything/anyone else connected to Milan, we'd love to hear from you.  As always, be creative, get noticed.

Articles should be a minimum of 1,500 words with no upper limit.

We don't require a pitch, or a CV, just send something over.

You don't need to be from Milan to submit an article.

You don't need to be a professional writer, anyone can submit.

Deadline for submissions is Thursday, 20th October 2016. We aim to publish in early November.

We can't guarantee to publish everything we receive, but we will read ALL submissions.

Articles can be mailed to, or you can submit using our contact page.

Get writing!
