As the opening date of submissions for the 2023 SMEDIAs is rapidly approaching, we’re changing the format in which you submit your articles. We are no longer accepting PDFs. We ask that either, include a link to the article online or you include a link to the Google Doc of your article with us in your application. Meaning, you upload your article to Google Drive and select the ‘everyone with the link can access’ option for sharing. This ensures that the judges can open your file.

If you have any questions or issues regarding the change in the submission file format, please let us know at, or reach out to us on Instagram @thesmedias.

Submissions close on March 15th, 2023.
