NTMAG buys stories and photos from northern fishos - any topics covering FNQ, NT and Norwest. It doesn't matter if you can't spell, I will fix that (usually, haha) ... we just want good stories, pix and info.

If you can't type, buy some voice software and a cheap microphone, your PC will type for you as you speak :mrgreen:

Firstly, if you want to know more about NTMAG, look here ... http://www.fishfinderbooks.com/index.php/cPath/41

I have revised the NTMAG editorial rates down on April 16, 2015, because the falling Aussie dollar and inflation has increased print costs by 30%+, and there has been no advertising growth despite the title's excellent sales track record in Darwin.

RATES inc GST
1. Text and photos $75 per page to a maximum of $250 regardless of number of pages. I will pay more if a story has useful GPS marks for rockbars, reefs etc or a useful map or Dr Depth chart that would add sales to the magazine.
2. Double-page photo as part of a story $60 (included in the $250 per story maximum as in No.1).
3. Single full-page photo as part of a story $30 (included in the $250 per story maximum as in No.1).
4. Exclusive newsy stories with pictures - eg how you sunk your boat, got terribly bogged, or a true trophy fish capture, a good shark or croc attack pic, GPS marks, are paid a premium. To be paid top dollar please keep these pictures off the internet and other mags until it is published in NTMAG etc - call me on 03 6266 0137 to negotiate rates on premium articles.
5. True remote area articles with particularly good pix and info might be paid a premium.

I can't guarantee how many pages any given article will get, because there are many factors to take into account. All stories will be edited, sometimes substantially - this is normal practise in all publications.

Cheers
Matt Flynn

Still keen to buy stories for my magazine, including yarns from those entering the billfish comps, or just chasing billies.

Not just NT, but NQ and Kimberley.

Keep the camera going, you can't take pix after the trip.

If you have a yarn idea flick me a PM :mrgreen:

I might get back on the bandwagon for this Matt, it's been a few years.
I'm not on Groote anymore so some Darwin & surrounding areas.
