FAQ'S

HOW DO I SUBMIT?
Submissions’ now go through KAVYAR. A link for you to get to the right place will be in our Instagram bio tree. The links change every month so putting it here would be pointless.

There is no limitation on submissions. Images must be exclusive and not posted on social media/other publications. Please include ALL CREDITS when submitting. There's no maximum amount of images, actually more images the better, but we need 6 minimum. Images need to be high resolution,minimum of 300 dpi and sized to..

Portrait: 8.5 × 11 in, 300 dpi (2550 × 3300 px)

Landscape: 17 × 11 in, 300 dpi (5100 × 3300 px)

If your submission is accepted,we will provide our photo release that will need to be signed and returned to us in order to publish your work. The images we have chosen must then NOT be posted/shared until that issue is released. Once the issue is released you will receive an email letting you know & provide you with tear sheets.

​​WHAT IS THE THEME?
All issues are OPEN THEMED unless otherwise stated….

.

DO YOU ACCEPT NUDITY?
YES! We accept implied and fully nude.

​I TOOK SOME SHOTS OF MYSELF WITH MY PHONE CAN I SUBMIT THESE?

DO YOU JUST TAKE SUBMISSIONS FROM FEMALE MODELS?
No we take submissions from both female and male models. We would LOVE to have more submissions from male models.

DO I GET A FREE COPY?

Sorry no, we don't get free copies ourselves so unfortunately we cant supply you with one, BUT we do email you your tear sheets!

​​Some of the reasons images don’t get accepted and some tips are:

  • They have been published all over social media and we like to keep the contents of our issues fresh for our readers (leave some mystery in each issue).

  • If you have submitted the same set/images to us more than 3 times there is a high chance it won’t be accepted and its best to try submitting something else for us to review.

  • FILTERS! Some filters and overlays on images are beautiful and can really make or break an image. An image may appear beautiful in digital format but once it prints sometimes the filters can print badly and really ruin the image and we would feel horrible if the image printed badly.

  • Really dark images. When images print they sometimes darken a bit and if the image is already very dark it may print black and you can’t see your beautiful face.

  • When your dropbox or email submission has 20 other magazines added or cc’d….There is a high chance another magazine will grab the images we wish to print and most magazines do not like to share content. We have no issue sharing sets but its best to give each magazine different images so no one gets upset.

  • If your submissions aren’t accepted it’s not because we think they aren’t good enough or because we are judging you, its very likely because of a technical issue with the image or because of one of the reasons listed above. We are a judgement free team.
