NAUI Seeking Article Contributors to be Published in Sources Magazine

NAUI Worldwide is seeking NAUI professionals with expertise and leadership roles in diving who would be willing to become a continuing contributor to provide an article/blog piece for our Sources magazine.

NAUI has developed a detailed marketing plan designed to increase annual awareness and reach from an audience of just under 100,000 to more than three million with our complete redesign of Sources, now available as a digital product accessible from all platforms (desktop, tablet, smartphone).

Our intent is to improve the reach and awareness of NAUI training and education to members and the general public. NAUI leaders have the flexibility to write on any topic, specific to their field of expertise.

Throughout our rich history, NAUI pioneers have been the innovators at every step and that tradition continues today. You are a member of a very prestigious organization and should rightfully take pride in both your NAUI Leadership and Membership. With your contributions and by virtue of your participation, you distinguish both yourself and our Association as leaders in the diving community!

This is an exciting time for NAUI members and divers. History has shown that NAUI defines diving; how will you define diving in the future? Please consider assisting us with this essential aspect of our global marketing and communications effort.

If you have any additional questions about becoming a contributor and/or our submission requirements, please email sources@naui.org and we will be happy to assist you. Submissions should go to sources@naui.org.

To improve the reach and awareness of NAUI happenings, our submission guidelines have been carefully crafted to facilitate the editorial process of publishing articles online.

NAUI members have the flexibility to write on any topic, specific to their field of expertise. We appreciate articles that introduce new ideas and advance conversation around topics and trends that engage our readers—think op-ed rather than marketing. NAUI prefers submissions from contributors who are leaders in and knowledgeable about the types of industries and topics the publication regularly covers. Contributed stories that touch on topics like NAUI leadership and dive training practices, the aquatic environment, diving education, dive career development, dive culture, dive shop career strategy, and equipment innovation are particularly popular with our readers, especially if there is a salient takeaway for other dive business professionals. We appreciate lively, polished writing that balances research or news with fun and memorable anecdotes or examples that help illustrate your point of view. While we encourage drawing from your own experiences in business to support your ideas, the articles should mention NAUI-related course/training/educational material. When possible, articles should be accompanied by relevant and engaging, high-resolution images.

 

Submitting an Article                                 

An email message with the article/images as an attachment to NAUI Sources should be sent to sources@naui.org. Include "Sources Submission" in the subject line. The message should include the author’s name, the title of the article, accompanying high resolution photos (with captions and attribution info), and any relevant information about the author/co-author, including institutional affiliation, membership numbers, and optional contact information (if not already included in article).
