For Photographers and Illustrators

We are looking for photographs and illustrations to accompany the articles and essays in the magazine. Whenever possible, we seek to print art that has not previously appeared in other publications.

We pay $60/photo. In addition to the photos we need to accompany stories, we also publish a regular feature, “1,000 Words,” that highlights environmental photography.

If you think your work would be suitable for “1,000 Words,” please send an e-mail to the editor.

Portfolios can also be sent by physical mail to:

Earth Island Journal
2150 Allston Way, Suite 460
Berkeley, CA 94704

We are also seeking high-quality, eye-catching illustrations to accompany feature stories. Pay rates depend upon whether the graphic is an original design or an existing work.

If you have illustrations for our upcoming issues, please send an e-mail to the editor. Portfolios can be sent to the address above.

We cannot guarantee to run unsolicited submissions. Decisions about what material to publish are at the sole discretion of the editors.

To see examples of the types of stories we publish, send $5.00 for a back issue of the magazine to: Earth Island Journal, 2150 Allston Way, Suite 460, Berkeley, California, 94704. Some articles are also available in our archives.
