Submission Guidelines

Teton Gravity Research is always looking for submissions for rad content to be featured on the homepage.

Consequently, we’re seeking out compelling stories in biking, surfing, snowboarding, and skiing. We’re interested in stories that resonate with the TGR community of core adventurers—stories that abandon the common in search of the extraordinary.

A Call For Pitches

We are especially interested in your original ideas—be they for features, stories, columns, photo essays, or video projects. For each idea, please craft a well-developed pitch.

The Details

What to Include in Your Pitch

Whether pitching new ideas for columns, series, and features, or topics for our current column line-up, please fully develop each pitch. Your pitch needs to address several key questions:

  • Why is this story of interest to the TGR community? Why are you especially equipped to write it and why is now the appropriate time to tell it?
  • If you’re pitching a topic that has already received significant attention—such as summer shredding in South America—how will you approach it with a fresh perspective?
  • What resources can you provide that complement the project (such as photos, videos, original art, etc.)?
  • If relevant, what athletes, filmers, or photographers will be part of the project you propose?

Format

Please submit your pitches in a Word document—not in the body of an email. In addition to your pitches, please include a brief bio, information on where you are based out of and where you will be traveling this year, and links to your portfolio or examples of your work.

Where to Send Your Pitch

Please email the Word document that contains your pitches to editor@tetongravity.com.

Important Deadlines

We will be accepting submissions until Wednesday, June 5th, 2013. After a two-week review process, the editorial team will follow-up with you regarding the status of your submissions. Please note that we will also have a second call for ski and snowboard pitches at the start of August. Don’t use this second window as an excuse for procrastination—the sooner you submit your ideas, the sooner we can get back to you and begin moving forward.

Questions

If you have any questions regarding the submissions process, please hit up Digital Content Manager Max Ritter at editor@tetongravity.com.

Muchas Gracias

Thanks in advance for your submissions. We’re stoked to dive into your pitches and collaborate with you in bringing these ideas to life.
