The mission of Outside is to inspire active participation in the world outside through award-winning coverage of the sports, people, places, adventure, discoveries, health and fitness, gear and apparel, trends and events that make up an active lifestyle.

Outside has always been driven by the search for innovative ways to connect people to the world outside. With the Internet, there's a whole new layer of depth added to that quest, which makes Outside Online a truly exciting place to be right now.

Outside Online slips the bonds of print, so we can offer you a wealth of information in a variety of forms that you can't get anywhere but online. We have all the space, all the media, none of the lag time, and all the dimensions to bring you everything from mountaintop audio clips to up-to-the-minute snow reports to an events calendar to lists of manufacturer contacts to expert answers to your questions.

Back in 1978, a letter in Outside's first issue stated that the magazine was "dedicated to covering the people, sports and activities, politics, art, literature, and hardware of the outdoors," an editorial goal that has stuck ever since. Armed with great writing that's always based on critical thinking and a sharp sense of humor, the magazine has done an amazing job of bringing people in contact with the world Outside. Outside Online takes all of that richness and slaps on the capabilities of the Internet, making the contact that much more dynamic and textured.

Much of that texture comes from you, thanks to the dimension interactivity adds to a reader's relationship with the written word. You determine what our gear and travel experts write about by submitting the questions they answer. In our new bulletin board areas, you'll have the chance to create a vibrant Outside community. You'll join us as active members of the editorial team, creating the site's content by contributing your thoughts, arguments, comments, and wish lists in these community areas.

To do a better job of presenting our content and integrating yours, we've redesigned the site's look and structure, and we think you'll find Outside Online easier and more fun to use in its new form. That form is constantly evolving, so let us know what you'd like to see. We not only welcome your feedback, we rely on it. We hope you share our excitement about Outside Online and its endless possibilities. Please return often to participate and watch us continue to grow.

Contributors' Guidelines

WRITER'S GUIDELINES
Outside
is a monthly national magazine dedicated to covering the people, sports and activities, politics, art, literature, and hardware of the outdoors. Although our features are usually assigned to a regular stable of experienced and proven writers, we're always interested in new authors and their ideas. In particular, we look for articles on outdoor events, regions, and activities; informative seasonal service pieces; sports and adventure travel pieces; profiles of engaging outdoor characters; and investigative stories on environmental issues.

Queries should present a clear, original, and provocative thesis, not merely a topic or idea, and should reflect familiarity with the magazine's content and tone. Features are generally 1,500 to 5,000 words in length. Dispatches articles (100 to 800 words) cover timely news, events, issues, and short profiles. Destinations pieces (300 to 1,000 words) include places, news, and advice for adventurous travelers. Review articles (200 to 1,500 words) examine and evaluate outdoor gear and equipment.

Separate guidelines are available for prospective photo and illustration contributors. Please request them directly from the photo department.

PRINT: Please send queries (not manuscripts) and two or three relevant clips along with a self-addressed stamped envelope to: Editorial Department, Outside magazine, 400 Market St., Santa Fe, New Mexico, 87501.Our response time is usually six to eight weeks.

PHOTOGRAPHER'S GUIDELINES
Outside
is a monthly national magazine dedicated to covering the people, sports and activities, politics, art, literature, and hardware of the outdoors. We rely on regular contributors for many images, but we are always open to innovative work that creatively reflects the essence of the magazine.

Features represent the best of outdoor writing and photography. Exposure is a gallery-style section devoted to showcasing exceptionally engaging photography and its creators. Parting Shot, the last image in the magazine, is a signature page that highlights a single image with a humorous twist.

Please send original slides or prints or good quality duplicates; 35mm or larger, packed in clear plastic sleeves. Please print your name on the slide mounts. Please do not send slides loose in envelopes or boxes. Mail all images to: Assistant Photo Editor, Outside magazine, 400 Market St., Santa Fe, New Mexico, 87501.
