SkyNews Submission Guidelines

Photo Submissions

At SkyNews, we love seeing your photos. Not only do we feature reader-submitted images in our popular Photo of the Week contest, but we also use them in the magazine.

So, if you have an astrophoto you’ve taken that you’d like to share with us and our readers, here are our submission guidelines:

1. Images should be in JPEG format, 2,400 pixels wide (or larger), and should not have text (such as labels or copyright notices) imprinted on them. (This information appears in the captions that accompany the photos, when used.)

2. Please include as many of the following details as possible: camera make, lens (or make/model of telescope), focal ratio, exposure time, ISO setting, processing steps, location and date. Feel free to add any other interesting details about the circumstances surrounding the photo, or anecdotes describing how/why the photo was captured.

3. Be sure to include your full name, city and province in your e-mail.

Send your images via e-mail to

Article Submissions

If you’re interested in writing an article for SkyNews, the first step is to send a brief query letter describing the topic you’d like to cover and a summary of its contents. In addition, please include a list of previously published articles/books, and point us to any on-line examples of your writing that we can review.
