“Photographs are required with submissions. Good photography can mean the difference between acceptance and rejection. We prefer to run photos of people in action. For example, a picture of a man removing a mink from a trap is more desirable than a shot of a smiling man posed with the animal. We encourage you to take posed photos with the catch, but also try some action shots in the field. We prefer high-resolution digital photos or slides, but sharply focused prints are acceptable. Digital photos should be saved as high-resolution tiff or jpeg file formats on a DVR or a CD. File-size compression should allow the file to maintain a minimum of 300 pixels per square inch when re-sized or edited in any fashion to actual image sizes of 11 inches by 17 inches for horizontal images, and 8.5 inches by 11 inches for vertical images. Please include your name and contact information on any CD or DVR you send for consideration, as well as on any included contact sheets. Please also send detailed information for each photo. Photos submitted with feature stories are accepted as a package. Payment for photos we accept individually vary from $50 to $200.”
