Send us your article idea

What we need from you

As a start, briefly tell us:

  • what problem you wanted to solve
  • how you solved it
  • how you knew you’d been successful
  • the context – for example, how your activity links in with The New Zealand Curriculum.

You might like to include any related documents and website links. If you want to include photos – these should be low resolution (email size).

If we can use your idea, we’ll be in touch for more information, including any higher resolution photos.

We’re always looking for high-quality photos for the cover of the Education Gazette magazine.

To be considered, photos need to:

  • be vertical or portrait format (taller than they are wide) 
  • depict students or teachers engaged in activity
  • allow extra space around the subject matter (un-cropped)
  • be at least 300 dpi or more than one megabyte
  • be sharp and clear as possible, with natural lighting.

Conditions for photo use

We need written permission from everyone who’s identifiable in the photo – including a legal guardian’s permission for children too young to give consent.

Please fill in the photo consent form [PDF, 227 KB] and attach it to your article submission.
