Well, it's time for the 2013 edition! Whether you have a show-quality truck, a hard-working hauler, an immaculate classic, a daily driver, or something rare or unusual that people need to see to believe, we want to get a peek at the photos. This is your chance to put your pride and joy in the spotlight. Use the form on this page to tell us all about your pickup or SUV -- what you've done to it, what you use it for, and any great stories that involve your ride. And if you start by saying, "It may not look like much...," let us know what cool technology hides under your pickup's clever disguise. When you send us photos, it would be great to see your vehicle in action: towing a boat or ATVs, working hard on the job site, in a cool vacation setting, or filled with friends on spring break (but keep it tasteful). All you need do is make sure you have the form completely filled out and photos shot to the best of your ability, then send them in.
We must have all submissions by November 20, 2012. Look in our March/April 2013 issue to see if your truck makes the cut. That issue goes on sale January 22, 2013.
• No Polaroids.
• Make sure photos are in focus.
• We like to see trucks at work or play.
• Doesn't matter who's in the photo -- but they must be clothed.
• No black-and-white photos.
• Be conscious of the best angles and lighting.
• Make sure the vehicle fills the frame without any part of it being cut short.
Digital camera users can submit information and photos to us by e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We won't use any submissions that are excessively altered or don't look real. Photos must be high-resolution images and around 4.0x4.0 inches in size, at a minimum of 300 dpi (individual file sizes should be at least 1 MB). Follow the advice above.
