Attention Photographers, Licensors and Content Providers:
BrownTrout prepares Submission Guidelines every year for distribution in April to an established field of freelance photographers, licensors, and content providers. In order to be considered for receiving Submission Guidelines, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and provide your complete contact information.
BrownTrout occasionally publishes single artist titles on a flat fee or royalty basis. Proposed titles should be queried via email. In your query please describe the proposed content and provide a representative sample. Please refer to the How to Submit Guidelines below.
How to Submit Guidelines:
We accept submissions by email or postal mail. Those interested in submitting to BrownTrout for publication in our calendars, please send a cover letter describing your work and tell us the subjects you photograph (or illustrate) and the format in which you shoot. If you are sending a proposal for a new title, please also briefly describe the concept and market for this subject. Include a URL to your online portfolio. We prefer you do not send attachments totaling over 1MB. If you prefer to mail BrownTrout a proposal, you may send tear sheets or non-returnable samples. If you send physical materials to BrownTrout that have not been requested, BrownTrout is not responsible in any way for these materials, their review or their return. Please do not include originals of any sort or any materials of value. Please retain a copy of your submission on CD or DVD, because submissions received by BrownTrout on CD and DVD will not be returned.
If we have a need for submissions in the categories for which you have coverage, we will advise you by sending submission guidelines at that time. We will contact you as needed.

We love pets and wish we could publish the snapshots of adorable pets that are sent to us. However, due to our production process, BrownTrout is unable to publish these pictures from individual photographers.
Thanks for your interest in BrownTrout and our products!
