• You understand that submissions may or may not appear in the Belton Journal and its related forms of publication, now or in the future.
• By contributing a submission, you are granting to the Belton Journal unrestricted, non-exclusive right to use it now and in the future. This includes modifying the original submission to fit print requirements.
• Submissions used become a permanent part of the Belton Journal and its product offerings. By virtue of appearance on the Belton Journal Web site, submissions may also become a permanent part of search engine caching libraries (such as google.com) and online archiving organizations (such as archive.org).

Guide for written submissions:
Always start your story with the most important information (Who, What, When, Where, Why and How). Be sure to include important details regarding any events or people described in the submission. Spelling is key. Be sure to check the grammar and spelling of your submission. The less editing that has to be done, the more likely we are to use your story.
Guide for image submissions:
Submitted images should be in JPEG or TIFF format. They should be the highest quality/lowest compression possible. A caption/cutline must accompany the file (no exceptions. If we do not get a caption/cutline or it is incomplete, we can not use the image.)
Caption/Cutline should include:
Name(s) of people in the image.
A description of the action in the image.
Date the image was taken.
Where the photo was taken.
Any additional background information providing context for the image.
Name of photographer.
