We are looking for unique talents and cute ideas to collaborate on amirisu. Our standard is high, but hey, we are very open-minded squirrels here. We may publish your photos, recipes, or interesting travel reports.
We are looking beyond knitting – to be exact, looking over a huge knitting pile and beyond.
How to submit your ideas:
All contents you submit to is must not be published in any other form of publications – including your website and blog.
Please know in advance that we can only pay very little even if we can. We may be able to arrange other type of compensation or exchange of talents, and amirisu prefer this way.
Please send us a link that showcases your work, and ideas of a work that you want to contribute. Please keep in mind that we can only publish one image.
Reports, articles, stories, crafty ideas:
Please send us the article itself, or a summary of your idea plus a sample of your previous work. Remember that we are going to need high quality images to go along with your work. If you know a photographer or an illustrator who can help you, that’s a plus.
Local Yarn Store:
Please send us a summary of your idea and some image/links to show us the yarn or shop. If the company is within our reach (from Tokyo), we will go out and take photos ourselves. Otherwise, we will ask you to find a photographer to prepare images for us.
