Got an Idea?
MODinChs welcomes story ideas from architects, designers, artists, purveyors of goods, really anyone who would like to see their work or event published on our site.
MODinChs is unable to pay for photography but will happily give credits, links and full copyright details where appropriate. Many photographers happily give free imagery for publication on MODinChs, who knows, it is a good way to promote your work and could lead to commissions from other publications.
At the moment, we do not accept stories from freelance writers, unless your stuff ROCKS, but keep an eye on developments as this may change.
Note: MODinChs hopes to gain a passionate and opinionated group of readers and the types of stories that attract a lot of comments. While I believe in freedom of speech, I understand that sometimes comments can upset architects, artists, and designers who send their work. I will try to moderate comments to keep them reasonable but one might slip through the cracks. If your work is covered in a story, and you feel the comments are getting out of hand, please drop a note and I’ll take appropriate action.
