Guest Contributor Submissions

Welcome to our adventure travel community!  Please note that submissions are on hold for the moment. Contact us again in a few months.

Please contact us with any questions by email:

We publish both well-known and budding talents and we’d be delighted to hear from you with your proposal for contribution.  The main requirement?  Ooze adventure in your travel writing and/or photography.

Guest contributions benefit you as a writer as well as the travel community.  We can’t say it any better than this financial guru so we’ll leave it to him – read this article for some tips and inspiration!

Now that you are assured of why and how guest contributions are essential for online writers, get in touch with a submission to Digital Nomad Travel Magazine (DNTM)!   See guidelines below.

Contributor Benefits

DNTM contributors are valued members of our community and our aim is to connect readers with you – real people going on real adventures.  If you seek out adventure when you travel, if your insights inspire others on social media, and if you want to contribute to a hub of travel info geared for adventurists, then we want your insight.

You receive:

  • A place to disseminate your travel writing and photography.
  • Promotion online and through innovative mediums like our Apple Newsstand app.  Show off your work on the retina display.
  • Access to a wider audience through mobile apps as well as online.
  • A descriptive author byline providing an opportunity to link back to your site.
  • An intro paragraph to the article by the editor highlighting you as the author.
  • Our social team will go out of their way make you feel like an adventure travel celebrity.

It’s your energetic, informative content that we want though – not sales articles. It’s you, the traveler/photographer that we want to shine the spotlight on – not on your products and services. To advertise products, ads are available in the magazine at great rates.  That said, linking that provides value is allowed in the article and byline.

 

We’ll make it simple, we accept the following:

Original article submissions (for the magazine or our website)

OR

Existing articles to be re-published (in the magazine app)

 

Original Article Submissions

May be used either for our website or the magazine depending on our editorial calendar.

Submission Checklist for Original Articles

Submit the following:

  • Completed original article with photos, captions, links & formatted with headings OR An outline for the suggested article along with samples of your previous completed work
  • Original works (not published anywhere else & using your own words, ideas and photos)
  • Photos to be used in the magazine must be provided in high resolution.
  • Articles you can make exclusive for DNTM’s use
  • See general guidelines

 

Re-Published Articles & Photography Submissions

Written content which is re-published in our magazine app is not duplicate online material as it is non-searchable in search engines.  No worries there!

Most excitingly, the Newsstand presents a unique and visually stunning medium to present your writing or photography as well as access to a vibrant and growing audience!

Submission Checklist for Re-Published Articles or Photography

Submit the following:

  • The article text in a Word document with photos, captions links & formatted with headings OR A link to the article(s) with a short blurb how it fits with our general guidelines (below)
  • Photographers: Submit a link to the photo(s) you’d like to submit along with a short blurb how the photography could be promoted in our magazine or on our website.  All photos to be used in the magazine must be provided in high resolution.

Photography in the high resolution mag really stands out!
