About The Annual

The GuildMag Annual is a magazine produced each year to celebrate our love of Guild Wars 2 and raise money for an awesome charity.

The theme of this year’s magazine is Tyria in Flux; an exploration of volatile magic and the Living World. Inside the magazine you’ll find a range of content including artwork, fiction, fashion and editorials produced by our talented team of writers and members from the Guild Wars 2 community.

As always, we’re partnering with a range of content creators to produce a magazine that’s truly made by the community and something worth owning. On top of this, we’re also donating $5 for each pre-order to our chosen charity: World Child Cancer. By ordering a copy of the GuildMag Annual 2018, you’re helping children in developing countries who suffer with cancer to access life-saving treatments.

This Year’s Charity

World Child Cancer is a charity very close to our hearts. They work to give children in developing countries who suffer with cancer a better chance of survival and support the families of those affected. One of our writers, Fearan, knows what this feels like all too well; click to read her story.

The work undertaken by World Child Cancer is vital in minimizing the discrepancy between cancer survival rates in developing and developed countries. By twinning hospitals and healthcare professionals in resource-rich countries with those with more limited resources, the charity aims to improve the quality of care available to children with cancer regardless of where they’re born in the world. There are currently 9 programs spanning Africa, Asia and Central America.

Every copy sold of the GuildMag Annual 2018 will see $5 donated directly to World Child Cancer.

FAQs

What is GuildMag?

We’re a Guild Wars 2 fansite that have been operating for over 8 years, and have published 21 separate magazines in that time including 3 physical ones. All of our magazines are available to view online for free – visit guildmag.com to get started.

What can I expect from the magazine?

You can expect a variety of art, lore, fiction, and editorials on topics such as raids and storytelling, produced by the GuildMag team and Guild Wars 2 content creators from around the community. Plus, we’re not rookies at magazine creation. You can expect a high-quality physical magazine designed to a professional standard by the GuildMag design team and printed using our tried-and-tested printing partners.

What do I get with the digital download option?

In exchange for your $5 donation, you’ll receive an early access download link to the digital PDF version of the magazine when print magazines are shipped in December.  This will be the same version we’ll publish to our website for free for everyone later in January 2019.

Will you ship to my country?

Most likely, yes. We’ll be shipping worldwide with a few exceptions, though the only way to find out for sure is to try and pre-order a magazine. If we can’t ship to your country, you won’t be presented with any shipping options. If you’re unsure you can always email us at contact@guildmag.com

When will my magazine arrive?

Our current production timeline will mean that magazine pre-orders are to be shipped in early December 2018. All orders will be sent on a priority service for delivery before December 25th wherever possible, though we cannot guarantee this for all destinations. 

Can I get a copy of previous Annuals?

Unfortunately not. Print copies of the Annual are only available as a limited edition each year. Our digital versions, however, are always available to all for free – visit guildmag.com to get started.

Are you affiliated with ArenaNet?

Yes! We are proud to be a member of the ArenaNet Partner Program. While this project is produced with the support of ArenaNet, it is not an official Guild Wars 2 product and ArenaNet are not in any way responsible for its production or content.

Are you making a profit from this?

Nope! Just as in previous years, we’re selling the GuildMag Annual 2018 at as close to manufacture cost as possible. All proceeds left over at the end of the project will be donated to World Child Cancer, which includes (at a minimum) $5 for each magazine sold. 

How can I contact you about my order?

If you have any questions about your order, or the GuildMag Annual 2018 in general, please send us an email at contact@guildmag.com. If you haven’t received a reply within 3 days, make sure to check your spam folder – we will reply to every email received.
