So you want us to publish your post? Fantastic! Please read the notes below to ensure you send us what we need and how we need it.
We don’t have formal criteria for selecting posts but in general are looking for content that is fresh, innovative, newsworthy, has a good story behind it and fantastic images.
We like submissions via email:
Send your text and images (good jpegs at least 3000 pixels on the shortest sides) to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We like exclusivity: We urge you to submit posts that will be unique and exclusive to Beach Bum Diaries. We do not accept posts that have already been published or submitted elsewhere online (not even on your personal blog) or that you plan to distribute to other websites. We are interested in submissions from writers, photographers and videographers.
We like to credit everyone: Send us post credits! Especially for the images and videos. We are rarely able to compensate contributors for posts, photography and videos; but we will happily give credits, links and full copyright details where appropriate.
Share share share: When we’ve published your post please share like crazy on social media, newsletters, your website and so on. It will help your project get more visits and more attention. Don’t be shy!
Get involved in the comments: People will comment on your project in our comments section. Hopefully the comments will be intelligent and constructive. Even if they’re not please get involved by responding, challenging and generally engaging with our audience. See our comments policy for details of how we manage comments.
Legal stuff: Please make sure you only submit content to us if you are the owner of all intellectual property rights in that post. This means, for example, that you own the copyright in the content as well as any trademarks or design rights, which may be registered or unregistered. Please check that you own these rights if you are unsure.
Where there is a claim that someone else owns all or part of the intellectual property rights in the post, we will investigate the claim and will remove the post from our website if necessary. We may also look to you for compensation.
We are free to publish posts that you submit to us in whole or part on this website, on any other site in which we have publishing rights, or via any other means, for example through mobile applications; and to allow third parties also to similarly publish this content where they do so in association with us.
Please make sure you do not submit any posts that might be considered abusive, obscene, illegal, libellous, defamatory, racist or factually inaccurate, as we will not publish such posts.
Remember you are fully responsible for all posts you submit to us and you accept liability for any actions relating to the post. Any comments and reviews posted on this website by you or other users do not necessarily reflect our opinions and we are not responsible or liable for any post submitted by you or anyone else.
