Utah Life Magazine, call for submissions

I’m sure some of you are familiar with Colorado life magazine, but Josh, has started Utah life magazine as well, and they have sent out specific calls for entries, take a look and see if you have images you’d be interested in submitting. You may also want to request to be added to his email inquiries, for both magazines. I’ve been published a couple times in his magazine. Take a gander at his most recent request and see if you might have entries that may apply. (I was also paid when an image was selected)

This is Joshua Hardin, photo editor at Utah Life Magazine. We hope you are well in these unprecedented times! Like many of you, our staff is working at home. But, we are still very busy planning future magazine stories. We like to keep our contributing photographers informed about the images we’re seeking through occasional emails sent once every couple of months or so. If you are receiving this it is because you have expressed an interest in contributing to the magazine or have published with us before. Below are photos we’re searching for upcoming issues. If you have these topics covered in photos you’ve taken, we’d love to see your work:

We’re looking for submissions for a story about Utah’s State Symbols. These include the state animal: elk; bird: sea gull; tree: quaking aspen; dinosaur: Utahraptor and many more. A list is here: https://www.utah.gov/about/symbols.html and we can use any photos that picture these subjects. The deadline to submit for this story is May 11, 2020.
We’re also looking for photos to accompany a story about Old Ephraim. Old Ephraim was a legendary grizzly bear who was buried in the Wasatch Range near Logan. A stone memorial to Ephraim exists along a long hiking and OHV trail. If you have existing photos from this trail or the memorial we’d love to see them. Also, any images from across Utah depicting bears, bear road or business signs, or other grizzly bear lore, will be appreciated and considered.

  1. More info is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Ephraim. The deadline to submit for this story is May 11, 2020.
    Hanksville’s Critter Garden will be the subject of a short story in an upcoming edition. This is a park near a closed motel that features art from scrap metal shaped into the forms of animals, dinosaurs and other critters. If you have existing images from Critter Garden, show them to us. The deadline to submit for this story is May 11, 2020.

We are printing a story about the Spiral Jetty. We welcome any photos of this Great Salt Lake landmark, including any unique views from lake level or aerials. The deadline to submit for this story is June 1, 2020.
Finally, we are looking at photos for our 2021 Exploring Utah Calendar and the Monumental Exposures photo department in every issue of the magazine. We usually print photos of Utah landscapes, cityscapes, wildlife or events in these sections. We keep previously-submitted work on file, but if you have new work to show us, we’d love to see it. Colorful photos taken in beautiful light, dramatic weather or interesting interactions between animals always get more attention. The deadline for these sections is continuous, though we hope to make our first selections for the calendar by June 1, 2020.

To submit, please send low-resolution preview images (about 700-1,000 pixels long) to me by email or by file sharing site like Dropbox/WeTransfer/Google Drive for review purposes. Links to online galleries will be accepted, though galleries which have the ability to download low res images in bulk, such as in a zip file, are preferred. If you have any questions about delivery methods, please don’t hesitate to contact me. If chosen for the magazine, we’ll ask for high resolution digital copies of images for publication. We pay for any images used. Please visit: http://www.Utahlifemag.com/Contribute/ for our rates and terms if you wish to know more.

As always, if you have suggestions for stories that Utah Life Magazine should cover, or ideas for projects that you would like to photograph for us, we’d love to hear your story queries and pitches. Thank you once again and we look forward to seeing your photos!

All the best,
Joshua Hardin
