How to Submit an Article or Photo to CQMagOnline.com


To Submit Photos to the Readers' Showcase

Photos for the Readers' Showcase will be accepted on the basis of space considerations for each new issue.  Photos may be forwarded via email in a jpg, gif, or bmp format. Please include your name and a brief statement regarding the project. You may submit up to 10 photos per issue, but additional photos will not increase your chances of winning a prize.  Send to Editor@CQMagOnline.com with "CQMagOnline Readers' Showcase" in the Subject line.

If you need more than a few sentences to describe your photo, please consider writing an article about your project and submitting it that way instead.  We are always looking for articles about CQ projects.
