Submission Guidelines


  • Submit as .doc, .pdf, or .txt file.
  • Include your title and name in the document.


  • Submit as high resolution as possible.
  • Submit as separate files from stories. Do not include photos in the story document unless you are also providing them as separate files.
  • Files as .jpg, .tiff, .png preferred but other formats will work.
  • Include a separate file (.doc, .txt) that lists a caption for each photo submitted.


More information is always better but must include:

  • Name of pilot(s)
  • Name of photographer
  • Photo location
  • (optional but helpful) A description of what is happening in the photo (e.g. searching for an LZ, So-and-so giving a briefing to pilots at the HG comp, Pilots so-and-so honing in on the core of a ripping thermal)

Refer to Editorial guidelines for more information.
