N.E.E.T. began in December 2005 as a quarterly, online publication, laid out in a magazine format - as a showcase for grassroots creativity. N.E.E.T. is the first of its kind - online, free and packed with everyone from a crafter creating from their kitchen table, to a fashion design graduate straight out of college, to a team of people doing it for the love of it. N.E.E.T. Magazine is the brainchild of Stephanie J. Everything in the magazine is handpicked, designed and organised by her, the editor. N.E.E.T. Magazine is an eco-friendly, grassroots style bible for the digital age.
We're always on the lookout for shops for product placement: jewellery, accessories, stationery, clothing, footwear, homewares, bags... We feature original, quality items - either handmade or vintage. All items must be available for purchase through your online shop. We often utilise images from each online shop - so clear, large photos (preferably on a white background) are a must. Email N.E.E.T. with a link to your shop for consideration at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: Due to the high volume of emails received, we will contact you if we would like to place your items in the magazine.
N.E.E.T. showcases a number of fashion photography spreads in each issue. We look for fresh and exciting, high quality photography, that has been created independently and fits in with N.E.E.T.'s style. We work with the photographer to create a spread using images from a photographer's current, working portfolio, to showcase their work. Please contact: email@example.com with a link to your online portfolio(s) [domain/Flickr/blog] for consideration.
N.E.E.T. showcases the work of talented illustrators and artists. We're interested in fashion-related illustration - and need work to complement and illustrate the various product pages within the magazine. Send a link to your online portfolio(s) to: firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll contact you about the possibility of commissioning you for illustration, or incorporating your work within the magazine.
Have you got an idea for an article? As long as it's independent fashion and design, we want to hear about it. We can't guarantee inclusion of all articles submitted, but email your ideas/pitches to: email@example.com
We also include a DIY Tutorial in each issue - past featured projects include: leather purses, tartan hairbands, origami paper bracelets and upcycled pinboards. Email N.E.E.T. with a link to your tutorial/blog or pitch your idea to: firstname.lastname@example.org

Current advertisers say...
"N.E.E.T. Magazine was one of my biggest inspirations for opening my own online boutique. The incredible support N.E.E.T has for independent designers and artisans is invaluable. I timed the opening of my store with the first month that I advertised in N.E.E.T. Within one month I received over a thousand hits from N.E.E.T alone! Bloggers from all over the world read N.E.E.T. and many of them contacted me after seeing my ad to do features on my store! The exposure from N.E.E.T. has been amazing and I can't wait to do many more ads with N.E.E.T.!" Leticia of La Dama
"I've been a regular advertiser with N.E.E.T. and have placed ads in many issues of N.E.E.T. Magazine since it began five years ago. Being able to advertise in such a hip magazine that supports independent artists and independent sellers at such a low cost was amazing help to me as a seller of online vintage. What's so great is that N.E.E.T. created a really cool, professional ad for me for no additional costs. The exposure boosted my sales immensely! When I checked Google Analytics shortly after I placed my ads, nearly forty percent of my clicks came through N.E.E.T. Pretty impressive!" Zarla of Santoki Vintage
