UPDATE: Contribute to Our Space Issue!


UPDATE: Due to special request, the deadline for our Space Issue Photography Contest has been extended to midnight Tuesday, February 20, 2018! Submit your photos based on/inspired by “2001: A Space Odyssey” to us by then for a chance to be featured in our Space Issue (March/April 2018). Before we get back the original post, we’ve answered some FAQs:

Q: Can I submit photos that have already been published?

A: Yes. And copyright permissions will remain with you, the photographer.

Q: Do the photos have to include a model?

A: Not necessarily. We’re interested in fashion shoots featuring models, but also in more conceptual shoots and even astrophotography.

Q: Does it cost anything to submit?

A: Nope — it’s free! All we need are your photos and basic information (name, website/social media handles and a short bio).

Q: Will I receive credit for the images?

A: Of course! Credit will be granted both within the spread and in the list of contributing photographers.

Q: Will the photos be ranked or put in places?

A: No — if we publish your photos, you’re a winner! We call it a “contest,” but it’s really more like an open call for submissions.

We’ve featured some of the most exciting art photographers in the world. We’ve featured one of the greatest rock photographers in history. And now, we want to feature you!
