Featured Art Submissions

Each month, Parachutist showcases artwork along a skydiving theme in the In Your Words section of the magazine. We accept paintings, drawings, sculptures, jewelry and other visual arts as submissions for publications.

  • Photos should be high-resolution, at least 400 ppi (pixels per inch) and no smaller than five by seven inches (2,000 by 2,800 pixels). Generally, this means the photo must be 500 KB or larger.
