UnderWater Magazine is seeking feature stories and photography covering subjects of broad significance to the commercial diving industry. Possible article topics include, but are not limited to safety, new techniques, new equipment, equipment reviews, recent projects, etc. Special attention will be given to articles highlighting safety; however, all topics of general interest to diving contractors will be considered. Photography accompanying your story is welcomed and encouraged.

If you are interested in supplying photography to be used within UnderWater Magazine’s pictorial features, please supply brief captions, along with the credit information of either the photographer or your company. See the photography guidelines below.

Please understand that the editorial plan set forth by the editorial board determines the availability of space for articles. If you would like to submit stories or photography for consideration in UnderWater Magazine, please contact Rachel Brown at rachelb@naylor.com or (800) 369-6220, ext. 6987.


Articles should be between 500 and 3,000 words. Longer pieces will be considered, depending on available space. Articles should be formatted in Microsoft Word, and sent via email to sguglielmo@naylor.com.


Hard Copy Prints
For hard copy prints, please write any identifying and/or caption information on sticky notes and attach the notes to the backs of the photos. We ask that you not write directly on the backs of the photos or use tape to attach the paper to the photos, as these practices may compromise our ability to make high-quality reproductions.

Electronic or Digital Images
Electronic illustrations (digital images) must be a minimum resolution of 300 dpi at the actual image size. Scanned images of less than 300 dpi do not have enough detail to print well. We likely will not be able to use electronic images scanned at less than 300 dpi.

Electronic images may be submitted in any of the common image formats: .tiff, .eps, .jpg., .gif, etc. We cannot accept files in Powerpoint (.ppt), Word Clipart (.clp) and MicrosoftPublisher (.pub).
