About BLK

 Tena koe! Black Magazine is an international fashion, beauty, arts and culture magazine published from New Zealand for the people of the world. Founded by Grant Fell and Rachael Churchward in 2006, and created by teams of contributors in New Zealand, Australia, New York, London and Paris, Black is more than a magazine, it is a vision of the world expressed through the creativity of its creators and contributors across a multi-media platform - from a bi-annual printed version to an online presence and community numbering over 200,000 followers and fans - and which now includes BLKONBLK. We don't take submissions for the printed version, Black Magazine is entirely commission-based and team oriented but we are open to an occasional submission for BLKONBLK - please do not be offended if we do not respond to your communication. We are often asked why we are called Black Magazine? In 2006 when we launched we wanted a title that represented who we are and where we come from. Black is unofficially the colour of our country, New Zealand. Our national sports team is called the All Blacks, in reference to the all black colouring of their uniform. Black is a foundation colour of fashion and very much associated with our local designers. When we launched Black Magazine we lived at Muriwai on Auckland's West Coast, where the colour of the sand on the beach Our beloved cat, Oscar, is you guessed it, black, and large swathes of the music we love and listen to could best be described as black music. So that's it in a nutshell, we love Black! Black Magazine is printed bi-annually. We hope you enjoy BLKONBLK and please do take the time to visit and follow the BLK Facebook page, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and Vimeo.  Thank you to DT Digital, without you we are (digitally) nothing. And a special thanks to Poutama Trust.

Have a sweet day, ka kite ano

Grant & Rachael
