We welcome this initiative and encourage you to follow it!
Earlier this month AWE Magazine was published!
In a nutshell, here’s how it’s different from their previous magazines…
- Less is more: fewer, but longer articles (2500 words), with a focus on investigative background stories.
- Raising the bar: even though they’re open to pitches from anyone and everyone, AWE Magazine exists as a springboard for aspiring writer-photographer-journalists who are already professionally active and want to take their work to the next level.
- Nothing is free: they know how much time it takes to produce good journalism. And, since time is money, good work deserves to be paid for. That’s why all contributions to AWE Magazine are remunerated — whether from writers, photographers or illustrators.

About the Theme
With Silent (R)evolutions, they want to highlight those changes that happen without much noise, because, all too often, the most import (r)evolutions of the past, present and future go unnoticed.
They’re very proud of how the magazine turned out in terms of the variety and depth of the stories, as well as the illustration design by the talented Gus Pisters Moystad.
As for us editors, it was a completely new challenge to produce a magazine in this new format, and there is obviously lots of room for improvement. Still, they’re happy to see that selecting the best ideas and paying for quality does actually pay off.
So, without further ado, they invite you to take a moment to explore the articles and photoseries in issue and shoot us any comments, concerns or heartfelt messages.

This Thursday the 24th of May they’ll be co-hosting an event with European Youth Press in Brussels. If you’re in the area, don’t miss it!
