Community

We’re more than a submissions platform. We’re a vibrant community of thousands of creators and institutions with stories waiting to be told.


Championing artists and those that support them is the reason Zealous was founded.

Part of our profits are reinvested into directly supporting artists by featuring their work and making resources available to them to flourish in their craft.

In the past decade, we have showcased work at exhibitions, rewarded excellence with awards and brought creators together to share knowledge (and a few drinks).

People subscribe to our newsletter because they enjoy reading it. To ensure we remain relevant to our readership here are a few tips on what and how to share your news.

If we feel your contribution is relevant to our readership, it will be considered for the newsletter. There is no guarantee you will be featured.

Please avoid submitting:

  • Content that is not relevant to our readership
  • Blatant sales (i.e. 40% public liability insurance)
  • Past events 
  • Repeat content

Note – if your content fits the guidelines, we still reserve the right to not publish it – this is the editor’s choice.

No, inclusion in our newsletter is free.

Think of it as an elevator pitch – what problem can you help solve for our readership, and what makes you unique in a couple of sentences. Don’t forget to add any perks (special deals) and costs incurred for taking part.

We may give you feedback on why your content wasn’t shared at our discretion, this is not guaranteed.

You can find out if you’ve been published in the newsletter by subscribing to it. We won’t email you separately to let you know.

We have a community news section at the bottom of our newsletter, this is where your contribution will be added. This is in no given order.

The rule of thumb is that our newsletter goes out on the last Friday of every month – this may change depending on bank holidays and internal workloads, but we send one out every month.

No, the community section is text only.
