Want to get your photos published in Wanderlust? Read these guidelines first...
We only rarely accept unsolicited material. Realistically, you have a one in 800 chance of a photograph being accepted.
Please read our guidelines for contributors below carefully and note that we do not accept enquiries or proposals by telephone or email. Nor do we respond to postal contributions unless a SAE (self-addressed envelope) or IRC (International Reply Coupon) is enclosed.
Wanderlust regularly uses freelance photographers and photo libraries. Please note that we only use high-quality slides, taken on professional film, or digital files of a suitable size and quality for publication in a glossy magazine.
To be considered please first send a summary of available work. It is a good idea to send samples of work but keep to a minimum – e.g. one sheet of duplicate slides – and note that we cannot be responsible for unsolicited original material. Please enclose return postage. Laser copies, postcards or tear sheets can also be sent as samples. Sorry – we do not make our feature list available.
We do accept digital images. As a guideline, the minimum file sizes required at 300dpi resolution are:
Note: please include with your submission a thumbnail printout stating the pixel dimensions of each digital file.
Wanderlust does not generally commission photographs. While the editor may ask for material to be submitted, this does not guarantee acceptance for publication.
Selected material will be returned as soon as possible after publication. Photographers should bring to our attention any calls upon their work which are likely to interfere with their availability for Wanderlust.
Payment is at a standard rate according to reproduction size. Payment is within 30 days of publication.
Wanderlust holds a travel photography competition in every issue of the magazine, as well as the UK’s largest annual Travel Photo of the Year competition.
Please visit Wanderlust's Travel Photo of the Year 2019 competition page to enter. This year's contest is open to amateur and aspiring travel photographers.
