How to Make a Topic Article Submission for Consideration

Thank you for your interest in submitting a topic specific article for consideration to ICM Photography Magazine (ICMPhotoMag).

Topic Specific Articles ~ Required Materials for Submission  

To have your work for considered for publication in an upcoming issue of ICMPhotoMag, please provide the following: 

  • A written article about your topic (minimum 1000 words).  ICMPhotoMag is especially interested in articles about individual ICM techniques and subjects, as well as articles that make connections between ICM photography.  We highly encourage you to think in terms of projects, visual stories, bodies of work, and/or cohesive sets of images that your article can be based around, with topics such as:

     - art in general
     - environmental awareness and concerns
     - mindfulness and contemplative reflection
     - inner healing and well-being
     - social conditions and concerns
     - philosophical underpinnings
     - the creative process
     - personal growth

  • 10-20 spot-free ICM jpeg images that your article is based around.  Images must be at least 2000px on the long side, no watermarks or logos, no frames, and no borders.  While you are welcome to submit up to 20 images, I may only use a selection of the images submitted, depending on the topic, the images, and space available in the magazine.   
  • Titles and/or descriptions of your images
  • Photo of yourself
  • Short bio / artist statement
  • Links to your photography website and/or all social media platforms

Where to Submit

The preferred method for submissions is via this link

Topic Specific Article ~ Google Form Submission

If for some reason the form does not work for you, a submission can be made either by email, in a shared Google Drive folder, or via Dropbox or WeTransfer to [email protected].

Once I’ve had a chance to review your submission, I will be in touch to discuss the options for when it might be possible to have your work featured. 

Pay for Topic Specific Articles    

ICM Photography Magazine pays photographers for their accepted and published full-length topic articles each quarter.  

Currently, payments for accepted and published full-length topic article content is $150 USD.

You will, of course, also receive, for free, the issue where your full-length topic article is published.  If you have paid for an annual subscription, the payment for your content will be adjusted upwards to reimburse you for that particular issue where your work is featured, depending on how much your original subscription is for. 

I feel it is imperative to compensate photographers for their work, and as the e-magazine and community grow, future payments for full-length topic article content will hopefully increase.  I want this project to be a benefit to the photographers themselves, not just a benefit to my own self-interest.


Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions or concerns about anything.

Thank you for your time and interest in being a part of this project.
