We'll publish a photo of a band or solo artist for each of the following sections in the 2013 Holiday Gear Guide, along with a short biography and links to band sites on web, Facebook, or YouTube: 

ELECTRIC GUITARS > Need electric guitarist or full band with electric guitars.

ACOUSTIC GUITARS > Need acoustic singer/songwriter or acoustic band.

UKES and MANDOLINS > Need ukelele and/or mandolin players.

Bands and artists are free to submit for any and all categories. Multiple entries (different photos) are allowed.

Photos MUST be high-resolution. Due to print quality requirements for the 2013 Holiday Gear Guide, there are NO EXCEPTIONS. 

Most shots taken with a real digital camera should be okay, but basic specs are photos that are 300 dpi and around 8"x15". 

You can send photos via YouSendIt or other "large-file" delivery option directly to


Be sure to also include your email address, contact info, band biography, and web links when you send us your photo.

The winners will be selected by the editors of the 2013 Holiday Gear Guide, and notified the week of September 4 and September 11.

Good luck!
