Ad Age is launching a contributor series dedicated to exploring the Gen Z perspective on marketing, technology, social media and the future of the ad industry.
We welcome young professionals or those studying marketing in high school or at the college level, who are 26 years old or younger, to submit fresh takes on their personal experiences. Submissions should be exclusive to Ad Age.
As a contributor, you will have the opportunity to share your insights and ideas with the Ad Age audience made up of CMOs, agency leaders and tech innovators. We encourage submissions that delve into various topics, such as AI, diversity, Web3, brand purpose, remote and hybrid work, creator economy, data privacy and the future of creativity—the list is endless. Bylines can also explore industry challenges confronting Gen Z at large and offer specific learnings, best practices and actionable insights stakeholders can immediately implement. Real-world examples that add context and understanding are encouraged.
Please note that we do not accept content that references an author’s company, clients, research or specific line of work, even indirectly. Additionally, we discourage excessive external links that require readers to navigate away from the article to see what’s referenced.
We recommend essays be about 800 to 850 words, but submissions can be longer depending on the topic.
