MILK – Elléments Magazine March Issue
This month I have been regularly submitting my fashion assignments from Brooks Institute to several independent online fashion publications. There are a lot of online magazines out there; some magazines can reach hundreds of thousands of viewers per month. I think this is a great opportunity to get yourself noticed if you do it right. Thanks to fashion photographer & editor-in-chief at COLE Magazine Dana Cole for gathering a list of fashion magazines that takes submissions. Also fashion photographer Lindsey Adler has put together a magazine submission resource guide for photographers for free on her website. It includes over 75 magazines and the information we need to meet submission requirements.
I am still a newbie to the fashion magazine world. I have much more to learn but these are a handful of important concepts that I learned from this month’s experience. There are a lot of rules to follow when you are submitting your work online. Initially, if you want your photos to be accepted and published, the first thing you should do is make sure your editorial has never been published before. Most of these magazines would only publish your editorial if they are exclusive, which means you should not have shared these images on your website and/or social media. I noticed small pdfs and/or small jpgs are the most common format for submission. But, you should always go to their website and read the submission guidelines before you hit the send button. Blindly submitting your work to a magazine would only get you rejected and also ignored by them.
My first exclusive fashion editorial is being featured on Elléments Magazine’s March Issue. This has been a fantastic experience for me, and I would recommend it to any photographer who is passionate about their work. I look forward to submitting more work in the future.
