Prospective advertisers please list what you are interested in advertising. The primary ad spots Blue Blood properties offer are the 728x90 leaderboard banner, the 160x600 tower banner, the 300x250 box, the traditional 468x60 banner, and the 117x30 microbutton.

Photographer Guidelines

The BlueBlood.net areas most open to freelance photography submissions are nightlife galleries and fashion editorial. Blue Blood looks for work which presents the subjects in a flattering light. If you think punks are ugly and your work is about presenting the horrors of failure to fit in or something, this is not the venue for you. BlueBlood.net is known for providing its audience with interesting and informative journalism, so all photo galleries must have accompanying articles to explain the importance and appeal of the photographic subject matter. Photo features must generally have a minimum of 385 words accompanying text. An example of a good accompanying article would be an interview with a clothing designer to accompany a photo gallery depicting the designer's fashions. Blue Blood seeks to publish photos which are actually about something. If all a photo has to say is that it is a photo and someone shot it, then it will not be of interest. A small sampling of photographers Blue Blood has published includes Chad Michael Ward, Gunter Blum, Carlos Batts, Larry Bradby, Justice Howard, Lori Mann, Kelly Lind, Ashley Fontenot, Roman Sluka, and of course Amelia G and Forrest Black. It may be possible for Blue Blood to pair photographers we have worked with in the past with writers to cover events and fashion. Please note that BlueBlood.net photo galleries may not contain any nudity, not even topless.
