Submit a Feature

We appreciate and encourage suggestions and contributions for challenging, thought provoking and informative news and feature content. 

If you are interested in contributing an article, please email the editor, Laura Vallis, at Please describe the subject matter/angle for the proposed article – along with a brief synopsis. 

Feature articles should be 650-1500 words in length with a head and shoulders image of the author, their job title and any other pictures you would like to accompany the piece. We accept articles in Word format, text-only files or Google documents. Images should be high resolution (>300dpi) in jpg, png, eps or tiff format.

Features are credited to the author and the company or organisation concerned but must remain unbiased, neutral and not promote a company or product placement. 

Our detailed editorial guidelines can be found on our Advertise Page

We publish editorial contributions free of charge (at the discretion of the editor). However please do bear in mind that KDS is funded solely by advertising revenues. This helps to enable us to continue to curate and share engaging, informative and educative news and feature / bylined articles, on behalf of the companies involved in the industry.
