The results of my last ten pitches
I pitch topical photoessays to places that run photo essays or places that certainly could.
- 1.Rejected—Too hard to produce
- 2.Ignored—Editor didn't get back to me before the subject died
- 3.Rejected—Editor seemed to think I wouldn't be able to pull the project off
- 4.Rejected—No budget for photography
- 5.Rejected—No reason given
- 6.Rejected—No plans to run photos without significant textual elements
- 7.Rescinded—Subject was forcibly committed to a mental institution before editor could accept or reject
- 8.Deferred—Editor asked to move this project to October.
- 9.Ignored—Editor from 8 ignored my second pitch
- 10.Accepted—Half-rate offered because of new relationship
