Submission Hints and Guidelines

Modern Trade Communications accepts bylined articles on an exclusive-only basis, and all content is edited according to AP Style.

New Products:Every month, we feature new products that have been recently introduced. Please submit press releases about the product and a photo.

Product Catalogs:Two categories every month that showcase products by category. Submit recent introductions, most popular products and updated products.

Feature Articles:Mostly written in-house, so we're looking for quality sources and great projects to support the article, whether its an industry overview, installation solutions or business tips.

Building Profile or Project Feature:An in-depth look at one project from multiple aspects. Design decisions, cost concerns, product choices, meeting owner desires. Staff written. Please submit projects and brief write-ups for consideration.

Know Your Products or Case Studies:One-page articles designed to help our readers learn about specific product categories by educating them. We will feature 2-4 articles in each issue. Article submissions should be more educational than promotional.

Drawing Board:One-page articles designed to show our readers what architects have on the drawing board for a future project or a project in progress.

Market Feature or Project Focus:Every month, we feature great projects by category so our readers can see what's new and what the market wants. Submit photos and write-ups.

Top Honors or Snap Shot:A one-page article that features a unique and interesting project. Submit photos and a description. Inquire first.
