We're interested in black-and-white photographs — from intimate moments of human connection to striking natural wonders — reminding us to take a closer look at the world around us.
When we accept a photograph, we keep the image on file until we find a place for it in the magazine. It can sometimes take quite a while for us to find the right issue for an accepted photograph, but we review every image in our file when putting together each monthly issue.
To submit by mail, send your black-and-white prints to:
Prints must be between 4 × 6 and 11 × 14. All submissions by mail must be accompanied by a stamped, self-addressed envelope or box for our response and the return of your photographs. Your work will not be returned without sufficient postage. Please include protective packaging to ensure safe shipment.
We purchase one-time rights. All other rights revert to the photographer upon publication.
