Write for Travel Oregon

Contributor Submission Guidelines

Got something to say about travel, food and drink or the great Oregon outdoors? We are always on the lookout for great Oregon storytellers. Here are some opportunities to contribute to the Travel Oregon story:

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, then send us your idea.

Guest Authors: Looking to break into travel, outdoor or food writing? We love short, first-person narratives about places to go and things to do for our Oregon “Trip Ideas” section. What’s your favorite Oregon memory, outdoor exploit, off-the-beaten-path experience, restaurant or insider tip? We’d love to have you write for us. Check out Trip Ideas for examples, then shoot us an email.

Photography:  We are always looking for editorial photographers for our Seasonal Features (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 stock library for consideration.

Instagram: Are you planning an adventure around Oregon, and are interested in documenting it on our Instagram account? We love to have guest photographers take over the Travel Oregon feed and share their travels with our audience. Take a look at the Travel Oregon Instagram gallery, then send us a link to your Instagram account with details of your upcoming trip.

Spend some time on TravelOregon.com to get a feel for our tone and style. Send your comments, questions and big ideas to e-editor@traveloregon.com, noting one or more of the categories above (Freelance, Guest Authors, Photography and/or Instagram) in the subject line.
