Editorial Focus of Photographs

What specifically are we looking for? Our greatest ongoing need is for interesting and engaging close-ups of people of other countries in a "natural" setting for our webzine covers. Photographers are encouraged to review our webzine archives  as well as our magazine archives and look at covers prior to submission. Cover photos should not be watermarked.

Subjects of photos should be seen in the context of their normal lives, not as interesting curiosities for tourists. They should not appear in pain or distress.

Currently we are also looking for photos which depict people studying, teaching, volunteering, working, or just living abroad. We ideally wish to see those who venture overseas engaged in activities with locals as visual examples to inspire others to do the same, but with the locals remaining the focus. Photos cannot be watermarked.

Note: We are also always looking for videos and photojournalistic essays which follow our editorial as described in depth in our writer's guidelines. Obviously, the New Media offers unique ways to tell a useful, inspirational, and interesting travel story.

Guidelines for Sending Photographs

All photo submissions must be identified with a caption so that we may understand the context and provide attribution (if you so desire) as well as the photographer's name and essential contact information. You may provide links to your website(s), blog(s), or galleries.


All material is submitted on speculation. We can pay from $100 for first-time rights for a webzine cover. Unless otherwise agreed we will use the photos on the website only (and for social media promotion of the website) and not for print purposes.

Payment is negotiable and subject to current requirements.


Please email all submissions after first making an enquiry to:
