Thank you for your interest in contributing an article to Canyon Magazine. We are all about exploration, adventure, photography and video. We want to build a site that records and shows canyoning as well as the technical aspect in a unique way to allow others to be inspired and to showcase the natural beauty that is often hidden away.
We love to receive articles from all over of the world and from all sorts of people. It’s what makes the canyoning community so supportive and amazing. If you have a story or want to share one of you canyoning journeys then fill out the submission form below!
The articles must have something unique and special for our readers and not just FaceBook Trip Reports with 2 sentences and the entire digital camera upload. It needs to be much more than that.
The most common question: How many words? As a guide we tend to like articles of about 500 – 2500 words. The articles should focus on the experience and adventure and as well technical details.
We know some of the explorations are so long and epic and may require more words or pictures and if this is the case we can split up the story into multiple sections. There are no limitations on style, as long as the articles are exciting, engaging and is wholly focused on canyoning.
As a rough guideline, each sub section usually is the minimum amount of words.
Editorial: 700 words
Exploration: 2500 words
Interview: 1500 words
Medical: 1500 words
Photo Journal: 500 words
Review: 1000 words
Trip Report: 500 words
Video: 500 words
Any word length.
Complete Technical chapters should be at least 3000 words.
For us, it is not only about the story but also the imagery that goes along with the article. We want the photos to show the part of the world that is not normally seen. Photos are essential to the articles on Canyon Magazine.
There is a minimum requirement of 9 photos for any story in the Explore section with an upper limit of 30 photos (we showcase the best photos, not every photo). We accept all formats. We do prefer in receiving as large as file as possible (Full size JPEG / TIFF / PSD of at least 3000 px 2000px) so we can than crop the image to our working size. We do reserve the right to change and edit the photos to fit the content and style. Please note we do not accept watermarked images.
When published all photos on Canyon Magazine have the following specifications:
File Format: JPEG
Size: 1440 x 1010
Average file size: 400k ~ 700k.
