Obrigado is presented by The Publishing Partnership. It is both commercially successful and alternative, combining edgy content and opinions with solid, mainstream information. Obrigado has won a number of awards over the years with content focused on South Africa’s cities and the people in them. We publish features on trends and trending people, interviews, reviews, fashion and tech that will interest and inspire our urban readers. Covers are designed by local artists, who regard an Obrigado cover as a rite of passage in the industry. Content is mostly local, based on a topical themes, and there is a regular section that features patrons doing what they do best at work or play. We also partner with local authors and designers who have created content specifically for the magazine, so there is meaning and relevance to the stories. In design, Obrigado is the quirky, whimsical kid testing the limits of conventional thinking.
Do you have something to share with us? Here’s what to do.
We like our articles to be conversational and entertaining – like a stimulating chat over coffee with a friend. Our writers are encouraged to speak in their own voice and present their unique views. The articles we publish are sharp, keenly observed and knowledgeable. You are welcome to send us complete stories or to pitch ideas. Before you do, have a look at our back issues to see what we cover, how we like it and what has been done already. Please include samples of previous work with your pitch. E-mail your story or proposal as a Word document or .rtf with relevant details included to Obrigado.
Here we are also looking for innovative, provocative images that will make readers pause and look again. Our covers are legendary – cutting-edge, adventurous art you would like to frame. If you have a cover idea, e-mail it so us with low-resolution jpeg or pdf attachments, or links to file-sharing sites where we can see more of your work.
Do you have some news or an event you think we should know about? E-mail your press release with an image to Obrigado. We get a lot of these, so we can’t respond to each one. But you can be sure we’ll take a good look. Even if your submission isn’t quite right for the print magazine, we’ll be happy to consider it for the events calendar or relevant section on the Obrigado website.
Obrigado is on Instagram and we’d like to share interesting images from your life. E-mail them to Obrigado as a low resolution image with all your details included. Remember to include your Instagram handle so we can credit your image.
Have a look at any issue and you’ll see your brand will be in good company in Obrigado. If you would like to advertise in the print magazine or on this website, download the rate card as a pdf to find out what the options are. We look forward to working with you!
