**Please Read Before Submitting**

-----------------------APERTURE COLLECTIVE RIGHTS TO PUBLICATION------------------------------
By submitting to Aperture Collective, you are agreeing to give us the rights to your photos for the usage of publication. If accepted, we have the rights to use the submitted photos in print, online, and Instagram features.

If we have already accepted your work for a magazine, our guideline is that we have rights to feature your photos in the magazine you have submitted to. We have the right to decline your request for cancelation if we have already accepted. If there is an absolute need to cancel, there will be a $25 CANCELATION FEE.

---------------------WHO WE ARE/ WHAT WE LOOK FOR IN SUBMISSIONS---------------------------
We are a high-fashion inspired magazine based out of Providence, RI. We are asking for at least 4 LOOKS for your submission and 8-26 quality photos in total. The more looks the better.

We ask upon submission to include the team members names and their roll, affiliated parties/ agencies (e.g. photographer, model, makeup artist, hair etc.) as well as credits for the clothing items featured.

**Please make sure that everyone on the team agrees to have their work published prior to submission. Once we accept, we have rights to the photos and will follow through with publication, unless a cancelation fee is provided.

While some landscape photos may be selected for print, portrait orientation is preferred.

We look for a cohesive editorial story that includes DIVERSE looks, locations, and/or backdrops. We are more likely to accept for print when we can publish a diverse spread.

If an editorial is an accepted, we will feature 6-8 photos of your work (even if the entire editorial was accepted). Any paid editorials will automatically get a 6 page feature (as long as the photos work). The length of the editorials depend on (1) what looks best for your editorial and (2) what works best for our magazine.

Please have your photos edited/retouched and have them 'ready to publish quality.' We receive a lot of submissions and so if they need additional work, they will be rejected.

*Kavyar INFORMS us the status of the exclusivity of your photos. We can see if they've been accepted to another magazine. If we see this, we immediately reject.

----------------------------COVER SUBMISSIONS (NOT GUARANTEED)----------------------------------
We now provide an option where you can submit to be eligible for the cover. There is NO GUARANTEE one of your photos will be on the cover. This is strictly a consideration pool. Cover submissions are non-refundable even if your submission was rejected.

-----------------------------------GUARANTEED SUBMISSIONS-----------------------------------------------
Guaranteed Publications are 100% refundable upon rejection by kavyar. We have the rights to reject a guaranteed submission if they don't follow our themes and guidelines/ don't work for a particular issue.

------------------------------------------------TEAR SHEETS--------------------------------------------------------
The way we operate is that tear sheets are processed AFTER the launch of the magazine to encourage magcloud traffic. Please give us up to 2 weeks to get you your tear sheets.

----------------------REFUNDS/MAGAZINE PURCHASES VIA MAGCLOUD-----------------------------
Refunds are available if we reject GUARANTEED publications ONLY (guaranteed cover, guaranteed publication etc). There are NO REFUNDS for priority upgrade submissions or cover submissions.

We do not give out free prints of the magazine if you are featured. Prints and the downloadable magazine will be available for purchase on magcloud.com. However, you will receive free tear sheets within 2 weeks of magazine release.
