Possible article topics include, but are not limited to: safety, new techniques, new equipment, equipment reviews, recent projects, etc. Special attention will be given to articles highlighting safety; however, all topics of general interest to diving contractors will be considered. Photography accompanying your story is welcome and encouraged.

If you are interested in supplying photography to be used within UnderWater’s pictorial features, please supply brief captions, along with the credit information of either the photographer or your company. See the photography guidelines below.

Please understand that the editorial plan set forth by the editorial board determines the availability of space for articles. If you would like to submit stories or photography for consideration in UnderWater, please contact Sean Garrity at sgarrity@naylor.com or (800) 369-6220, ext. 3442.

Writing Guidelines:

Photography Guidelines:
Hard Copy Prints
For hard copy prints, please write any identifying and/or caption information on sticky notes and attach the notes to the backs of the photos. We ask that you not write directly on the backs of the photos or use tape to attach paper to the photos, as these practices may compromise our ability to make high-quality reproductions.
