Process Heating gladly accepts photographic submissions for consideration as a cover image. The subject (type of equipment or process) featured on the cover each month varies; contact the editor for scheduling. Keep in mind, though, that submitting photography does not guarantee it as cover placement.
All images submitted for consideration should conform to the following.
Process Heating will consider existing photography (taken for a company brochure or catalog) or help you coordinate a photo shoot specifically for a cover image for this magazine. (While there is no guarantee that any photograph will be used for the cover of Process Heating, involving the magazine’s editor and/or art director in the photo shoot will allow us to make suggestions that may increase the likelihood of the magazine using the images.)
If you have existing color photography you would like considered for a cover, please evaluate it with the following guidelines in mind:
In addition to the above guidelines, if you are planning a photo shoot, consider the following:
If you are interested in having existing photography considered for the cover, you may send low resolution .jpg images or brochures or catalogs, with the appropriate image(s) marked, to the editor for initial evaluation. The editor and art director will evaluate the image(s) and determine if appropriate for an upcoming issue. If we are interested in using the image, the editor or art director will contact you. Prior to final acceptance, the high resolution image (provide to the specifications outlined in the Digital/Mechanical Specifications section), transparency or photograph must be provided for final evaluation.
If you are interested in photographing an image specifically for our cover, please contact the editor before scheduling the shoot. The editor and/or art director can determine whether the proposed subject is suitable as a cover image and provide specific suggestions. In addition, they will provide a cover template that you can use to evaluate Polaroid images during the shoot. This will help ensure that the magazine logo and cover language do not cover a significant aspect of the equipment or process.
Please Note: BNP Media shall own all rights to any submission accepted for publication (including text, photographs, artwork, charts, graphs, etc.) in its edited, redesigned or otherwise altered state. BNP shall have the right to publish such submissions in any form whatsoever, including printed form, disk, electronic or any now- or hereafter-developed method of transmitting information over the Internet or other distributed network system.
