Can I submit a photograph for publication in National Geographic magazine or on your website?

Unfortunately, our magazine and website editors do not accept any unsolicited photographs for publication. They plan articles and features months, sometimes years in advance and make assignments based on the coverage envisioned. 

The exception is "Your Shot," a monthly column in National Geographic, which features readers' digital photographs from our photo community, Your Shot. It's a passionate, creative community dedicated to sharing, discussing, and exploring amazing visual stories from around the globe. Members of the community, including some of our photo editors, regularly provide feedback on photos. Learn more at
