Editorial Submissions

Editorial Submission Guidelines


Each issue of Design NJ includes feature stories about homes of all shapes and sizes from all over New Jersey. If you have a great house or a beautiful space to share (indoors or out), please send a brief description and scouting or professional photos.

Description Specifications

Please share with us the location of the project, any unique design challenges and a brief summary. We’re looking for great design as well as interesting stories behind the design.

Photography Specifications

Scouting photos may be low-resolution digital format or prints and should show every space you would like us to consider. If we select the project for publication, we will schedule a photo shoot with a professional photographer. If you’ve already had your project professionally photographed, please share that information.

We receive hundreds of submissions each year and review each one carefully. To best facilitate the review process, we prefer that you submit projects on a CD/DVD. We also accept submission of photos through email, Dropbox and other file-sharing services.

Regardless of how you submit, include NO MORE THAN TWO PHOTOS PER ROOM or no more than five photos of a landscape. We will not consider submissions with more than two photos per room or more than five photos per landscape. If we accept the project for publication and you would like us to consider additional angles, we’ll discuss it at that point.

Please note that homes for consideration must be located in New Jersey and must not have been published elsewhere. If you have posted the project on Houzz or any other widely available digital platform other than your own website, you will be required to take it down until after the issue in which we have published it is off newsstands.

Please identify each room and put a return address label on the backs of any material you would like us to return.

Each issue of Design NJ offers other excellent opportunities for publication. If you have a product, project, event or service you would like us to consider for publication, please send us a photo and a brief description. Some regular departments cover the following topics:

New Products

Please add us to your media list so we receive information about your latest product releases and introductions. It is important that we are kept up to date so we can effectively report on your products as well as industry trends.

Trend Information

The editorial staff of Design NJ carefully monitors national and regional trends in several industries. This information helps us process and filter the projects we choose for publication. If you have trend information that you would like to share, we’d be happy to receive it.

Green Living Products

Or services that help homeowners decorate and care for their homes in an environmentally friendly way are welcome. The products or services can involve interiors, exteriors or landscapes, and they should demonstrate that homes can be beautiful and comfortable as well as eco-friendly.

Expert Opinion

Design NJ supports trend information with expert opinions from respected sources. If you are interested in being considered as a source for trend research or inclusion in our editorial content, please feel free to contact us for consideration.
