Techpoint is always on the look out for unique perspectives, opinions and thought pieces on how technology affects the everyday African.

If you have a compelling article to share with our vast audience of technology enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, business executives and investors, please take some time to review the guidelines below.

Before you submit

All submissions should:

  • Be valuable to our audience. We do not accept overly self-promotional content.
  • Not focus on topics that have been covered on our platform before, except when approached with a unique angle.
  • Be original; preferably not have appeared elsewhere.
  • Be written in clear, engaging and error-free language. Please avoid excessive use of jargon and buzzwords.
  • Not be overly critical of brands, institutions or personalities.
  • Include proper attribution for all data, images and statistics used.
  • We do not accept press releases, startup/personality features or product/service reviews as guest contributions.

How to submit

Send all submissions in Doc or HTML format to editor@techpoint.africa (only genuine guest contributions please) with subject as Guest Contributor (important!).

  • Attach images separately. Do not insert them in the document.
  • To indicate where images go, use appropriate placeholders within the text (see below).

  • Individual image sizes should be no larger than 200KB.
  • Include a brief author bio (200 characters), with not more than one external link and attach a 100×100 headshot.

PLEASE NOTE (Important!)

  • We receive a considerable amount of contribution requests daily. Submissions that do not adhere to the above guidelines are at the risk of being overlooked.
  • The email provided is strictly for sending guest submissions. You do not need to ask if you can send a submission, just send it (as long as it adheres to above guidelines). If you have other unrelated requests/enquiries, please find out how to contact us here.
  • Editors reserve the right to reject unsatisfactory submissions. Only accepted submissions are guaranteed a response.
  • Editors also reserve the right to edit, re-purpose and rearrange submissions according to their discretion.
