The Maidan welcomes your own original reports, analysis and comments not exceeding 3,000 words. It reserves the right to reject any submission that does not meet its standards or objectives and will not entertain explicitly violent or sexual material or material that does not respect human dignity or offends minorities on the basis of race, gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, disabilities or personal beliefs.
A maximum of eight photographs may be accommodated in a story, preferably in .jpg or .jpeg format. Videos should be in mpeg format and compressed. Online submissions should be made in the body of the email or in an attachment.
Please state clearly in a line or two how you would like to be introduced as an author. Accepted articles may be edited to enhance readability, which means there may be some delay in publication. Major editorial changes will be discussed with the authors. Normally, an acknowledgement will be made within three days.
The contributors remain responsible for the views expressed in their articles and for authenticity of the news they provide. They retain all rights and allow the Maidan to publish their work in an issue and to archive it for posterity.
Any material published on the Maidan may be used by any other media with proper acknowledgement of the author and the source. However, the Maidan will not be responsible nor can it be held liable for any consideration if other media reproduce an article without showing this courtesy.
The Maidan cannot pay contributors as it is a free magazine run entirely by volunteers.
