To find submission guidelines for online and print publications, check with the publisher’s website site for specifics about sending articles or photographs. Magazines like National Geographic Traveler have detailed instructions about how to submit materials for consideration.
Most publishers ask that queries include a short proposal for written articles, tailored to the voice and tone of the publication and geared toward a specific audience. For photographs, a portfolio accompanies the artist’s credentials, and when sent by mail includes return postage and envelopes.
Each publication’s submission guidelines ask that applicants research the archives available online for similar ideas before submitting work.
