2015 RodMaker Magazine Article/Photo Submission Fee Schedule
Feature Articles – $50.00 to $100.00
Short Articles, Tips, Etc., – $15.00 – $25.00
*Payment will vary low to high based on article length, quality of accompanying photos, etc.
Color Photos for Photo Gallery – $25 per photo published.
If more than one photo is used in the same issue for different images of the same rod, the fee is $25 plus $10 per additional photo, maximum of 3 photos.
Articles – Should be submitted in non formatted plain text, preferably in email text, not as formatted attachments. Spelling and grammar need not be perfect – will edit on this end at no payment penalty. Can take photos here if author does not feel compentent enough for that portion of any article. If photos are supplied, background and lighting from photo to photo should be consistent.
Photos – Good quality, high resolution tiff or jpeg files required. Photos must be clear, in focus and well lit. Use of suitable background is required. Good background images include: single color foam colored foam sheets, colored aquarium rocks, beach sand, water, etc. The idea is to draw the eye to the rod, not the background. “Busy” backgounds are not ideal. The more simple the background, the better the rod will be showcased. Shoot for good contrast – dark colored rods on light backgrounds and light colored rods on darker backgrounds.
Payment is made by company check or may be taken in subscription or renewal to the magazine – author’s choice. Payment or subcription/renewal is made upon publication of issue containing article/photograph. Articles and/or photographs that have been previously published elsewhere in print or on the internet will not be considered. Articles/photos that promote or advertise the author/agent’s product or service may be published but are not eligible for payment.
