What our sponsors are saying:
“Our organization’s presence on Pyragraph has helped us reach our audience, and has provided excellent articles covering our programs. What Pyragraph is doing is highly relevant and current for arts and culture in New Mexico and beyond. The artists’ perspectives they bring to the dialogue is truly valuable and much needed.” —Suzanne Sbarge, Executive Director, 516 ARTS
“Pyragraph helps us reach into a different community, and more of the same community, for Tractor Brewing. We like to get in the minds, ears, and eyes of our artistic regulars, while at the same time coming across the screens of ABQ creatives that haven’t been to the Beer Farm. Pyragraph’s approach has been something that has worked for expanding our network in many ways.” —Carlos Contreras, Tractor Brewing Company
What’s Up With Branded Content?
Pyragraph is building a new model of online publishing, aligning artists’ needs for self-promotion and creative expression with Pyragraph’s editorial mission: To share entertaining and informative stories from working creatives, aimed at helping other creatives.
Pyragraph offers innovative ways to share your message with our audience of creatives.
As a Sponsor, you can place Editorial or Creative content at Pyragraph.com and on our social media channels. We’ll also help you develop that content so that it best and most effectively promotes your product, service, event, initiative or other project.
- Editorial content: If your message fits within Pyragraph’s editorial scope, we will help you develop blog posts and/or features to run at Pyragraph.com.
- Creative content: If your messaging needs would be better served via creative/visual content such as ads or memes, Pyragraph will help you develop that content and share it on our social media channels.
All Branded Content is developed to fit within Pyragraph’s editorial scope: entertaining stories and lessons learned shared by people working in creative fields, aimed at helping other creatives.
To discuss details, questions or ideas, contact Peri Pakroo at 505-453-3155, or via our contact form.
Videocast and Podcast Opportunities
Flame and Blaze Sponsors have the opportunity to present segments on Pyragraph videocasts or podcasts, such as Live from the Albuquerque Press Club (videocast), Self-Employed Happy Hour (podcast), and other shows as they develop.
How Pyragraph Extends Your Social Media Reach
Besides developing quality Branded Content you will be proud to share on your own, Pyragraph will also promote your Branded Content widely on social media and help expand your reach. We are most active on Facebook and Twitter, and have growing channels on Instagram, YouTube, Soundcloud and more.
Our Branded Content isn’t pay-for-play and it’s not for everyone. We look for Sponsors who have stories to tell of interest to creatives. All Branded Content must meet our editorial guidelines.

Profiled Artist Features
Are you an artist, musician, filmmaker, or other creative worker looking for exposure for yourself and/or your projects? We offer two affordable ways (the first is FREE) to promote yourself on Pyragraph and Pyragraph’s social media channels:
1. Write for us as a Community Blogger. We are always looking for artists to share stories about pursuing creative work, and we often work with non-professional writers. Community Bloggers are not paid with cash, but with exposure and links via their blog posts and blogger bios.
Our format is first-person blog posts from working creatives. Within that format we offer wide creative freedom. Rather than traditional topic-based “objective” articles, we are looking for first-person blog posts (including photo and video content) about your experiences with your creative work, projects and/or career. Mentioning and promoting your shows, new releases and other projects is fine, as long as the focus of the post is on sharing experiences and information helpful to other creatives.
Acceptance is subject to discretion of Editors and posts must meet editorial guidelines; see our Community Blogger Guidelines for more details on our format and editorial scope. Email inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Buy a Profiled Artist feature. If writing isn’t your thing, for affordable fees Pyragraph can help you develop posts about your work, projects and/or career. Profiled Artist formats include Q&As and photo features using photographs and captions submitted by you. See fees below. Interested? Contact us via message or at 505-453-3155.
Profiled Artist Rates
1 feature: $50
3 features: $135
