Submission Guidelines

Do you have a story idea? Great. We work with photographers and filmmakers from around the world. We also receive many pitches every week. Before sending a story idea our way, please consider the following.

*We love it when people spend some time on the site beforehand, and pitch (or don't pitch) accordingly.

*We do not publish stories about road trips, bar crawls, outdoor adventures, or other first-person travel narratives.

*Since the visuals are such a big part of the story, we only accept pitches from photographers and filmmakers.

*We are looking for stories with a strong sense of place. 'WHY HERE?' is a question we often ask.

*Rather than simply profile a place, we aim to highlight an element of that place (including the people who live there) that makes it special on earth. Please present your idea with this sensibility in mind.
