Pitch. COLORS is now accepting pitches for short articles and longer reportage on our digital platforms.


If you've been sitting on a good story or just have an idea for one, please feel free to get in touch at Visual or wordy, research or reportage, all we request is a paragraph or two explaining the subject, angle and treatment you have in mind, plus some sample images or ideas for visualizing the story. A few tips (but please don't limit yourself to these or we'll get bored): - As "a magazine about the rest of the world," we're happy to publish stories from Los Angeles, London and Berlin, but we're even happier to publish something from Žarqajyń District, Kazakhstan. - COLORS has always been known for its images, so your pitch should consider the visual side of the story.

. - The best way to understand what we're looking for is probably not to email us and ask, but rather to surf our blog and latest issues. Columbus Museum of Art.

CMA and #JJ partnered throughout October 2014 to post themed photo challenges that engaged the mobile photography community with inspiration from Columbus Museum of Art’s Photo League collection. More than 5,000 photographers from 89 different countries submitted nearly 45,000 images via Instagram. The resulting exhibition co-curated by CMA and #JJ community features more than 320 images from 240 photographers representing nearly 40 different countries. 2003 Pulitzer finalist - Feature Photography - 2003 Pulitzer: Feature Photography Don Bartletti - For his memorable portrayal of how undocumented Central American youths, often facing deadly danger, travel north to the United States.

2003 Pulitzer finalist - Feature Photography -

In the vast migration that is changing the US, a Honduran boy rides a freight through Mexico. Each year thousands of undocumented Central Americans stow away for 1,500 miles on the tops and sides of trains. Some are parents desperate to escape poverty. Many are children in search of a parent who left them behind long ago. Buzzards and children compete for scraps at the Tegucigalpa, Honduras, landfill. Elio Trujillo Martinez, 13, works for tips in an outdoor market in Tegucigalpa, hauling goods in a handmade wheelbarrow. Richard Alberto Funez waves a toy pistol and acts like a tough guy, to the amusement of his buddy, Alexis Joel Sanchez.

Teenage boys peer out of a jail cell crowded with stowaways captured in Chiapas, Mexico. Undocumented Central Americans crowd the tops of freight train cars in Mexico.
