Been working on a photo project for a while now? Been looking for a way to get your work published in a magazine or online? Well, great news, SPM is once again accepting article submissions. We review work from amateurs and pros alike, so don’t feel like you need a lot of experience to qualify. What you do need are high quality images from a camera or cell phone and a story to tell. If you have those two things, the following resources will help you decide what kind of submission you should make and how to make it publish-worthy:
Photo Projects or Stories

- SPM ARTICLE – Tips for Creating a Photo Project Article. Detailed tips, ideas for different kinds of photo projects and examples for your consideration.
- SPM PODCAST – Tips for Getting Published in SPM. For those of you who prefer audio, in this episode of the podcast, Bob and I discuss what we look for when we select projects for publication.
Single Image Submissions
Description: Single images NOT accompanied by written content.
- SPM ARTICLE – How to Get Your Street Photography Published. For those who prefer to submit one image at a time with no written content, you’ll discover where our submission form is located and how to fill it out.
Each one of the three articles above containe detailed tips and instructions as well as links to even more resources. We want to see your work published and we’ve created plenty of tools and resources to help you reach that goal. What’s more, we’re always happy to offer you personalized advice if you aren’t sure what direction to take your project or how to make your work really stand out.
Oh, and another thing, if English isn’t your first language, never fear! Our staff can translate any articles written in Spanish to English. If you don’t speak English or Spanish, you can still send us your article in your best English. We’ll edit it for simple grammar and spelling errors and offer suggestions to make the English sound more natural, as if it was written by a native speaker.
