Stereo World actively welcomes submissions that focus on historical and contemporary stereo photography and stereoviews, including stereographers, publishers, cameras, viewers, and 3-D imaging.

We also welcome informative and “how to” articles about stereo equipment and techniques relating to cameras, viewers, digital, video, and mobile applications. Articles illustrating unique stereo subjects and events are also encouraged. Space constrains our ability to publish lengthy articles featuring stereos by clubs and individuals as well as general historical articles illustrated with stereoviews but not focused on stereography.
