Careers at Outside

Do you want to work for OutsideWe're looking for talent!

Contributors' 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.

Print Guidelines
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. Due to the amount of ideas we receive, we do not have time to respond to each and every query. If interested in your story, we will respond within six to eight weeks.

Photographers' 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.

To submit for Exposure consideration, photos must be previously unpublished and taken within the last year. We look for dramatic action, composition, and/or lighting. High res files must be at least 11x17 inches at 300dpi for double page spreads and 8.5x11 inches at 300 dpi for single page verticals.

Parting Shot, the last image in the magazine, is a signature page that highlights a single image with a humorous twist.

Please send Exposure and Parting Shot submissions as low-res JPGs or as a link to a web gallery to photo@outsidemag.com

About Outside

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.
