CORAL and AMAZONAS Magazines buy exclusive worldwide rights to written works for publication in printed and electronic/digital formats in Reef to Rainforest Media publications in English and other languages. The author will agree not to revise and resell an article to a competing publisher for at least a period of six months.

Payments range from about $100 to $500 per article, depending on length, complexity, the author’s experience, and whether or not images are included with the text.


CORAL and AMAZONAS Magazines buy single-use worldwide rights to original images that are intended for publication in printed and electronic/digital formats. “Single usage” restricts the use of an image or group of images by the publisher to a single article, in print and online, and the promotion of that article. In other words, the publisher is not buying the right to use the image in other works or in appearances without the accompanying text or portion of that text.

Image payments range from about $10 to $100 per image bought individually for single usage, rate dependent on size, use and quality of an image. Packages of images on a single subject are bought at prices typically ranging from $100-$300, again dependent on number of images, quality of images, and their use in published materials.


Payments are made upon submission of a written invoice by the author or photographer. Such invoices can be submitted electronically by regular mail or email and should include the following:

    Author’s Full Name
    Author’s Postal Address
    Author’s eMail Address
    Title of Submitted Work
    Amount Due
    Payee (If different than author personally.)

Payment is generally made within 4 weeks of the issue being printed or published online and released to the public. Domestic payments are made by company check. International payments will be made by PayPal.


1.  Electronic files in .doc or .docx format are standard.

2. The first page of a manuscript should include the the title of the work, word count, the date, and full contact information for the author.

3. Basic naming conventions used in CORAL and AMAZONAS:

Species names:   In italics, Genus name capitalized, species name lower case.  Common names are “up style” with caps to distinguish between a “white shark” and a White Shark.
Alternate common names, if presented, are usually enclosed in parentheses.

For example:

     Carcharodon carcharias, Great White Shark (White Shark, Great White, White Pointer, White Death)

Our standard reference for current scientific names is:  Fishbase

A good source of many common names of aquarium fishes and other organisms in the aquarium trade is:  Live
