Tell us about Galah. What sort of content do you publish, and how often?
Galah is a cultural magazine about regional Australia - a modern voice from the bush. With over two issues each year, Galah celebrates regional Australia and the creative, diverse and innovative people who live here. For the first time in a long time, more people are moving into regional Australia than out of it. Galah is a publication for this new era. Our aim is to use journalistic tools to tell human stories, covering art, food, farming, travel, design, as well as big picture cultural issues.
Who is reading Galah?
Our target audience is women and men interested in regional Australia - about 60 per cent regional readers, and 40 per cent city / metro readers. Our target audience includes entrepreneurs, creatives and changemakers. Even though women do most of the buying of Galah, men seem to steal Galah from their partners.
Where is the magazine available?
The magazine is available directly from our website (we ship from Galah HQ in the small town of Tenterfield on the NSW-QLD border), or through our network of stockists
or through some newsagencies.
Who makes up Galah's editorial team?
The Galah team is made up of me (Annabelle Hickson) as the Publisher / Editor, Ryan Butta as Editor-at-Large, Giota Letsios as Creative Director, and then we have a team of freelance writers, photographers and sub-editors.
How does Galah prefer to work with PRs?
The magazine is designed to be different to other lifestyle and cultural magazines about regional Australia. Our intention is to create a high-end, luxury print product which feels more like a book. Advertising is limited to a maximum of 10 per cent of the overall magazine content. The design is simple and pared back with a focus on quality journalism and outstanding photography.
Galah's aim is to showcase regional Australia in a way that highlights the colour and diversity of our communities. We are not interested in trends. We are not about selling the aspirational. We are focused on documenting creativity and innovation in all forms in regional Australia. Submissions guidelines are here
