Support 1000 Words
We are presently calling on sponsors and supporters of the arts to join the Kickstarter campaign to help launch our first print magazine.
2018 marks the 10th anniversary of 1000 Words, and what better way to celebrate than to publish a special print annual?
Be part of the next phase of our development and support us in making the transition from web to print and then back again. This crowdfunding campaign is going to support the production costs associated with the print magazine, which includes printing, design, editorial and special anniversary projects. Read more about the initiative here.
“1000 Words is a fantastic online platform engaged in pushing the boundaries of photography in both the consistent selection of interesting photographers and the intelligent, critical reviews.”
Yossi Milo, Director at Yossi Milo Gallery
“1000 Words is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in contemporary photography and one of the key places I go to in order to find out what is new and exciting. It helps keep me abreast of upcoming photographers and is consistently rigorous in its selection and insightful in its reviews. A real source of information and informed opinion.”
Sean O’Hagan, Photography Critic at The Guardian
“I would need more than 1000 words to explain how useful, enriching and easy it is to use and enjoy this magazine. The place to find out what is going on in photography and why!”
Cristina de Middel, Photographer
“1000 Words is one of the few online magazines I regularly visit. Its hallmarks are the consistency of its editorial selection in the work they choose to feature and in commissioning new writers to write about photography.”
Brett Rogers, Director of The Photographers’ Gallery, London
“A few words about 1000 Words. Tasteful, insightful and smart. And consistently and reliably so. Here’s to another ten years.”
Christian Patterson, Photographer
Since 2008, 1000 Words has tirelessly championed the art of photography and showcased the work of countless artists at critical stages in their careers. As a result, we have secured a reputation as one of the most trusted and critically-engaging spaces for photography outside of the conventional outlet of galleries and museums, books and print magazines.
But while access to the content is free, the labour and resources involved in its production are not. Please consider making a donation to support us in delivering our mission of publishing incisive yet accessible writing on photography. Donations average £25 and will help ensure that all 1000 Words contributors can be paid throughout 2018-19, while keeping readers informed and abreast of developments in contemporary photographic culture. Funds also go towards a variety of 1000 Words projects such as exhibitions, workshops, talks, awards, commissions and mentorship opportunities.
