The Outdoor Wire actively solicits press releases in the following categories: shooting, fishing, camping, hiking, archery, equipment, media, (outdoor-related or adventure) travel, recreational vehicles, events, legal/legislative, associations and people. If you have a release that you think is appropriate for The Outdoor Wire, but does not fit into one of these categories, please submit it and we will give it our consideration.
With each press release, we ask that you submit contact information - name, email, phone number - for at least one person in your organization; this information will be published with your release.
Releases should be dated within five (5) business days of the date you wish to have your release published. If you have an older release that is still relevant, please update it before you send it.
The Outdoor Wire does not accept releases related to killing of animals by any means other than the lawful, licensed harvesting of game animals or predation. We also do not re-publish other newsletters. All releases submitted to The Outdoor Wire for distribution are solely the responsibility of the company or agent submitting the information. Should material be questionable in content or outside acceptable standards for writing, The Outdoor Wire will contact the source for clarification prior to distributing said material.
Do not submit any images to which you do not have distribution rights. By submitting images, you are representing that your company or client has full distribution rights to these images -in perpetuity. One-time usage rights generally do not include distribution in press releases. Please do not presume you have rights simply because you have used an image in the past.
The Outdoor Wire requires an annual Corporate Membership in order to distribute releases in full, with images and links. Those are available for a low annual price per calendar year (1 January -31 December). Please note that Corporate Memberships are not prorated.
Releases submitted without a Corporate Membership will either be rejected or included in News Briefs at the editor's option. We encourage you to add The Outdoor Wire to your media list even if you don't plan to use this package service as the material may be deemed newsworthy by our editors. Not-for-profits may submit their material for no charge.
To submit your release, send it in plain text or Microsoft Word format to firstname.lastname@example.org and copy email@example.com. All releases received by 5 p.m. ET will be published in the next day's issue. Submissions will not be acknowledged unless there is a problem, but please contact us if you do not see your release the following day.
