Interrupt Magazine is a non-hierarchical fashion magazine. We use fashion as a universal entry point to conversations and actions that dismantle oppressive mainstream constructions of gender, sex, race, power, and beauty. Each issue, we have a new editor-in-chief.
Our goal is to co-create content that provokes change, inspires action, and builds a portfolio for the important change-makers in our generation. You can read our manifesto here.
Are you the next editor of Interrupt?
The Process: We spend a month working closely with a creative who is sustainably engaged in the issue they wish to ‘interrupt’ - acting as their personal creative agency.
What does this look like? Each editor produces four pieces of intriguing, engaging, and original content with the Interrupt team - see the latest issue here. We help you conceptualize, communicate and execute your ideas to bring your cause/perspective/mission/aesthetic to it’s fullest potential; reaching as many viewers as possible.
We interrupt mainstream media through physical interruptions, like this hashtag and wheatpasting campaign we did last week, viral videos like this one, popular photo series like this one, events, gallery shows, and more.
Oh, and we provide you with all the resources of a magazine! Think: the office space, the illustrators, the graphic designers, the photographers, and the filmmakers, plus a $500 stipend.
Here are a few ideas we are interested in Interrupting this season (we’re always up for new interpretations, crazy ideas, fresh perspectives - so, don’t stop here):
We like to work with editors who have cultivated communities around their work, bring a nuanced perspective to their issue, are passionate about storytelling, and excited to collaborate with our team. We love investing in first time content creators so don’t feel intimidated if you’ve never been published!
So, are you in? Fill out the application here by September 29th so we can get to work!
