Your submissions fuel this magazine. We're proud to publish reader-submitted material and it helps us represent the rat rod scene as a whole. We don't dictate what shows up in our magazine - you do. Give us your best, give us your worst... whatever it is, we want to see it.

**PLEASE remember to put the proper keyword in your subject line so your email gets to the right place. THANKS!
Full features appear in both print and digital editions of the magazine and are anywhere from 2 to 8 pages in size. Sometimes our own photographers will seek out and shoot a vehicle, but freelancers or third party photography is accepted (and many times is the fastest way to get into the magazine.) Before submitting please download and read our contributor agreement. (HERE) To submit, attach 2 or 3 sample images along with the completed Contributor Agreement and email HERE. PLEASE READ THE AGREEMENT - it clearly describes what we are looking for.
Please include contributor info, owner/builder name, model info (if applicable) or any other relevant info in your email.
Our most popular segment - simply send us a picture or two of your ride with your name, a few brief vehicle notes, and your location HERE. Reader rides appear in both print and digital editions of the magazine. Progress pics and #ShopShots are also welcome.
** We can not publish images with watermarks or other copyrighted material in our reader rides section.
Like our reader ride section, this is a place to share your shop buddy (doesn't have to be a dog) and we'll get it in the next print and digital editions of the magazine.
Please send animal's name or relevant info, and a photo or two HERE.
MODELS/GIRLS of RAT ROD Special Edition:
In our regular edition of Rat Rod Magazine, the focus is on the vehicles first... but that doesn't mean we don't have a special showcase for models as well. In 2016 we introduced our model-focused "Girls of Rat Rod" special edition. While the first edition of this ultra-high-quality limited print was shot by Jerry Ripley, future releases will welcome work from submitting photographers. Whether you are a model or a photographer, please submit your info, samples, or inquiry HERE.
From painted works to illustrations, sculptures, or whatever crazy creations you may have - submit your work and profile to be featured in our occasional artist segment HERE.
To submit to our Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter pages - please post to those pages directly.
