“Will you take the blue or red pill, and follow us down the rabbit hole…?”
The next issue of Noctis Magazine is looking to celebrate the diverse pool of artists and influencers that Britain has to offer. By showcasing their talent and creativity, we’d like to capture the true essence of Britain today through the expressive ideas within London’s hidden subculture scene.
Subculture is the birth of art and fashion as we know it; it’s home to the misfits, the misunderstood and the inspiring. A community that puts up the “middle finger” to society, it’s a place where you are free to explore creative outlets, connect with spirituality or live out fantasies through performance, art and personal style. From Punk to techno rave, subcultures are for those wanting to escape the boundaries of society.
Print submissions are now open for our Subculture issue. Please read our guidelines further below
Online submissions are open for editorial, video and written content. There is no set theme for online submissions, but we are happy to discuss ideas with you if there is anything you’re unsure on so do not hesitate to get in touch. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Peace and love <3

We work on a submission basis and set a general brief for the issue to inspire you, we then hope that you will interpret this in your own special way; because of this, Noctis Magazine is shaped by your contributions, both for online and print. We want to remain a fluid platform that is both exciting and unpredictable; we'll also let you in on a secret, we don't set a brief for online-only submissions, if we like it, we will publish it.
Unfortunately we cannot cover any production costs for your submission, but we will of course credit every name that you supply to us (so make sure nobody is forgotten, because how will we know if they are?). Copyright will ultimately remain with you.
The work you submit does not have to have been created specifically for Noctis Magazine, simply because you may have something in your portfolio that fits our current print theme. However, we would like for you to submit work that has NOT been published in any other magazine, online or in print, and that if the work has already appeared on your personal website/blog/etc that you remove it until publication. Furthermore, you do not publish the finished submission via your website/social media/etc until our issue is released.
Do not take our theme too literally either; we adore creative and exciting work. We want to see work that is experimental and questions the brief, work that showcases a sense of personality and belonging.
All submissions are submitted for consideration. We cannot guarantee your submission is successful until the day we sign off the proof. Once this is done, we will let you know if you have made it into the print version. If you have been successful, we ask that you still hold off self promoting until the issue is released. If you have not been successful, you are free to do with your submission what you please.
We would also like to stress that it is your responsibility to make sure the entire team is happy with the submission and that you communicate with each other.
EVERYTHING WE DO IS FOR THE LOVE OF WHAT YOU DO.
PEACE AND LOVE ❤ NOCTIS MAGAZINE
WE CANNOT OFFER FREE COPIES OF THE MAGAZINE FOR CONTRIBUTORS OR RELATIVE THEREOF.
This sucks, we know, but Noctis Magazine is entirely self funded and it gets kind of embarrassing for both of us when we have to try and justify our circumstance. Please don't ask.
We strongly believe that is much more beneficial, for all of us, to get copies of the magazine distributed, seen by all, and gathering funds for the following issue. We appreciate your submission, and we hope that you appreciate our part in publishing it.
• All submissions should be sent to Noctis Magazine in one file via WeTransfer or Dropbox; ideally to the relevant editor, with a clear indicator that the work is a submission to our next issue or online.
• We need work in proportion to at least 4000 pixels wide at 300dpi without exception.
• In the e mail please supply all credits, this includes the people who worked on the piece, any models and agencies, and any clothing/product credits that are required. As much as we enjoy chasing you for the credits, we would prefer not to.
• Any extra information you would like included should also be sent through on the same e mail, but we can only guarantee credits will be used should your submission be successful.
THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN SUBMITTING
• The design process from the day of our deadline takes approx. 3 months, assuming that you stick to the guidelines.
• We cannot guarantee your submission is successful until the day we sign off on the proof copy; as soon as we know, we will let you know.
• It is our priority to give you a beautiful magazine on time, which we fit around our full time day jobs. Please remember that the magazine is entirely self-funded, and the time put in is our own.
