Open January 15 to January 31, 2024
Puddles, splashes, floods,
and other images where water meets land
We’re continuing our reader-sourced Murmuration section next summer, and we need your help. Each season we put out a call for photography in response to a specific theme, then pick fifteen of our favorites to run as a group of 2 x 3 images in a grid format at the front (second page) of the magazine.
During our submission window from January 15 to January 31, 2024, we’re looking for images of water: puddles, splashes, coastlines, riverbanks, flood zones, and such. Submit 1-3 images, and if we select one, you’ll get a complimentary year-long subscription to Orion. Don’t worry about resolution or specs yet, but know that horizontally oriented photographs work best.

STORY PITCHES and SUBMISSIONS
Essays on the Environments of Film and Television
From January 1 to 15, we will be open to pitches for essays on the environments of film and television. Send us your story ideas about the viewing experiences that sharpened your view of nature — watching climate disasters in blockbuster movies, inhabiting the landscapes of the drive-in, or researching the carbon footprint of streaming. Please note that we are looking for nonfiction pitches, not full stories.
Please write to email@example.com with any questions.
Note: In general, we’re not able to consider submissions for poetry, fiction, or AI-assisted works at this time, even during an open pitch window.
