Smoky Mountain Living magazine is seeking photos from readers

Smoky Mountain Living prominently features images from across the southern Appalachians in each edition. Photo essays adhere to the issue’s overall theme.

Our October/November issue will be SML’s “Mountain Men” issue. Submit your photographic interpretations of this theme for possible inclusion in our photo essay by August 8. Think multiple generations of men in the family, fathers and sons, brothers, male animals and their owner men, displays of manly feats, etc.

Reader submitted photos are unpaid but  those selected are rewarded with publication in our nationally distributed magazine. SML covers the southern Appalachians and  celebrates the area’s environmental riches, its people, culture, music, arts, history, and special places. Each issue brings the Appalachians to life. Published six times each year, SML is a magazine for those who want to learn more about where they live and those who want to stay in touch with where they love.

Submissions should be hi-resolution digital images and include information about  where  and when the photos were taken and by whom. All submissions  should be  emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
