Write for Travel Oregon

Contributor Submission Guidelines

Do you have a story to tell about Oregon travel, food and drink or the great outdoors? We are always on the lookout for great Oregon storytellers. Here are some opportunities to work with us:

Freelance: We contract with writers, photographers and videographers to produce the quarterly collection of stories we call seasonal features. These stories highlight the Oregon spirit in people and places around the state. Itineraries and profiles are written by experienced travel, food and outdoor writers, but we’ll always consider a great story idea from a newbie. Take a look at the Trip Ideas section of our site and our editorial style guide, then send us your idea.

Guest Authors: Looking to break into travel, outdoor or food writing, or wanting to promote a business or area you love? We look for first-person narratives about places to go and things to do in Oregon. What’s your favorite Oregon memory, outdoor adventure, off-the-beaten-path experience, restaurant or insider tip? We’d love to have you share with us and our readers. Check out some of our Trip Ideas for examples, then shoot us an email.

Photography and videography:  We are always looking for editorial photographers and videographers for our quarterly feature stories (see the “Freelance” section above) and the annual Travel Oregon Visitor Guide. Want to shoot for us or submit stock photography? Please send us a link to your website or media library for consideration.

Influencers: Are you a social media influencer planning a trip around our state? Take a look at the Travel Oregon social media channels and some of our  Trip Ideas, then fill out our Influencer Request Form.
