Photo & Editorial Submissions
Thanks for your interest in submitting to Thrasher magazine.
In addition to instructions on how to submit photographs for our popular Photograffiti section in the printed magazine, this page will also explain the best ways to get your photos, videos, or story ideas in front of the editors.
If you haven't already, please check out our article on How To Get Your Stuff In The Mag
Most importantly, we encourage you to send photos, art, and stories as often as you want.
Notes For Freelance Writers:
Story submissions should be attached to your email as Microsoft Word or RTF documents, and sent to [email protected]. Please include your name, phone number, and mailing address. Today's modern word processing programs have adequate grammar and spell-checking capabilities; writers who use these applications have a much better chance of getting published. Please do not double-space words or lines.
Notes For Photographers:
We get hundreds of photo submissions, so it takes time to sort through them. We cannot individually reply to every one who sends something, so please be patient.
Stoke of the Day submissions:
If you want to get your own Stoke of the Day, email us vertically-composed photos 610 pixels wide @ 72dpi to [email protected]
Please be sure to include the skater name, location, and photographer name.
By sending us photos, you are giving us permission to use them in Thrasher's Photograffiti section, free of charge. The photo(s) you send may be printed in the very next magazine, a year from now, or not at all. There's no way of knowing.
Email your Photo-G submissions directly to [email protected]
The photo(s) you send should have your name, trick, location, and the photographer's name CLEARLY stated. Ideally, each digital photo file would contain the skater's name and location in the file name itself (plus the photographer's last name, too). This creates long file names, but it really helps us sort through them, make sure we print the correct info, and it'll increase the odds of your photo getting printed.
The tricks are usually obvious, so they don't need to be in the file name.
IMPORTANT: To print 'em in the mag, we need images at least 3 x 4 inches @ 300dpi. They won't be printed in the mag if they're smaller than this, so there's no real reason to send them.
If your intention is to show us your photo portfolio and you DO NOT want the photos printed in Photo-G, this need to be clearly stated.
The best way to show us your portfolio is to post your photos online and send the link to [email protected]
We will look at your submissions. Thrasher uses staff photographers 95-percent of the time. However, dedicated, talented skate photographers will get noticed over time if you keep sending stuff and updating your portfolio.
9/20/2019Many music videos have incorporated skating. No big deal. But the band Slashers and the artist Dylan Goldberger combined forces for a truly psycho skate trip. This blend is so complete that it's tough to spot any divisions between skating, music, and art.
9/20/2019Andrew Reynolds leaves Emerica, Evan Smith and Mason Silva need sponsors, Kevin Baekkel's part and more in today's episode of Skateline.
9/20/2019You won’t find a sicker road trip squad than this crew right here. The Spit team leaves nothing but scorched Earth and crushed concrete in its wake.
9/20/2019This is one of the most important video parts of all time. Crazy to think it dropped 16 years ago. Time really does fly...
9/20/2019A savage Norwegian metal soundtrack is the perfect pairing for an absolute lunatic on urethane. Baekkel is out for blood. Get the hell out of his way.
9/20/2019Power and finesse packs a mighty punch, and Christian Henry delivers some heavy blows in this part. Enjoy the show...
9/20/2019Salt Lake City ain’t the wildest place on earth, but the final stop of the Park Series peaked the energy levels in Utah to unprecedented heights. Congrats to Oski for taking home the crown!
9/20/2019This past Thursday we had a super small showing for close friends to see the new Lotties video. —Daniel Wheatley
9/20/2019"These girls are about to thrash this place like no tomorrow." —Christian Hosoi. C’mon. It’s Hosoi. He knows what’s good!
9/20/2019Stevie Williams’ legacy in skateboarding is one-of-a-kind, so it only made sense for DC and DGK to throw him a celebration for the re-release of his classic DC shoe.
