Tips for Contributor Ideas

We are all about sharing unique content that you can’t find just anywhere on the internet. Feel free to submit more than one idea too!

  • Each idea should consist of a topic and article summary. The summary should outline what is going to be covered in the article in 5-10 sentences. 
  • Suggested topics include car and motorcycle culture, DIY projects, auto troubles, auto technology, automotive history, racing, boating, experiences such as buying your first car, and more.

Accepted Submissions

If your idea is accepted, we will respond to your submission with next steps within 14 business days. Depending on the content, we will assign a due date for the fully written article to be sent to us for review. Contributors will be given a minimum of three weeks to complete the article. Once the article has been approved by all parties it may be posted on and/or shared on our social media accounts.

*We reserve the right not to post any article received.

Great Ideas are Rewarded

All contributors will receive a byline giving them credit for writing the article. At the bottom of each contributed article will be a short bio about the individual along with a headshot. Additionally, the article may also be shared on Valvoline’s social media channels to let the community in on your topic and invite them to engage.

Once an article has been approved and published, as a thank you, the contributor will receive up to 2,000 Team Valvoline points towards Team Valvoline gear. They'll have access to exclusive rewards that are not available to all Team Valvoline members. Contributors will not receive any monetary compensation for their article.
