How do I submit an image to Sky & Telescope's online photo gallery?
- Complete the brief submission form. This allows us to get in touch with you if we have questions about your submission. It also grants us permission to post your image on skyandtelescope.org (see more on image rights below).
- Upload your file.
- If your image is chosen for the print magazine's Gallery section, we'll contact you via e-mail.
What is the maximum file size I may upload?
The maximum file size for the online gallery is 500 kilobytes, and we accept images in JPG, PNG, or GIF format. Images should be no larger than 1500 x 1500 px. To reduce image size without sacrificing image quality, try this online tool (free for a trial period).
Do I still own the rights to my image after I submit it?
Absolutely. You retain the copyright to your image. By submitting a photograph for consideration, you warrant and represent that the photograph you submit (the "Photograph") is your own original work, that you alone own copyright to the Photograph, that it is an authentic and accurate depiction of the subject matter presented, and that no other party has any right, title, claim or interest in the Photograph; and you grant to AAS Sky Publishing, LLC, a royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual license to display, distribute and reproduce the Photograph, in whole or in part, in any medium now existing or subsequently developed for editorial purposes, including reuse by an entity with whom we have a content-sharing relationship, without further review, participation or consideration from you.
Will Sky & Telescope pay me for my submission?
Sorry, we don't pay for submissions to the website. However, if we decide to use your photo in the print version of Sky & Telescope, we will compensate you at our standard magazine image rates.
