mnngful: stories worth seeing

Thanks to passionate storytellers we learn about genuinely meaningful matters that otherwise stay neglected

We find such passion-driven authors and their stories worth speical attention. They create because they care about the world they live in. They put their efforts to tell us about matters that otherwise stay invisible.

Such voluntary work is usually driven by enthusiasm, and rarely well paid: photographers sacrifice own financial interests and time in favor of covering what they find important.

mnngful is here to these caring storytellers to amplify the meaningful message of stories  they tell. We strive to back photographers and journalists in the work they do and make them confident, inspired and empowered to keep going.

We provide a carefully curated documentary stories by independent photographers & journalists three times a week in your inbox.

Every day we dig the web for stories to select the strongest and deliver to our subscribers. With this newsletter in your inbox, you will see the delighting examples of independent photodocumentary work covering any imaginable topics.

All stories are available in the archive and we're always open for new stories submission.

Since the launch in August 2021 we have published more than 50 stories and reached thousands of readers from 110 countries worldwide.

Every author is offered a fee and many authors decided donating it to charities. This is another big thing about indie authors and the tangible impact they strive to create via storytelling. This is one of our key goals — to create a truly worldwide project without geographic borders for both readers and authors.

Here's who are reading our website:

We would always love to hear from you

Any feedback and ideas are invaluable for us at this phase, and we're truly open for discussion, collaboration ideas.

We would ask you to answer one question:

Is there a photo documentary story you believe we must learn about and feature it here, in our newsletter?
