WE ARE A MEN'S FASHION and celebrity magazine. Here is out latest issue.

The May 2019 Spring/Summer issue's theme is NEW BEGINNINGS. That can mean living life to the fullest, being with friends, enjoying the day, experiencing new things, a cool activity, enjoying the warm weather -- whatever NEW BEGINNINGS MEANS TO YOU!

All fashion editorials must be a minimum of 8 to 12 photos to be considered for online exclusive or in-book exclusive.

Although this is a men's magazine we do do one major woman's story in each issue called American Beauty -- which should be a sexy layout with a beautiful woman.

Cool America is a quarterly digital and print-on-demand publication but beginning in March 2019 will be sold nationwide by Barnes and Noble. We accept submissions on a rolling basis year round to be considered for publication either as an online exclusive or in-book exclusive. The March and June issues will be Spring/Summer and the Sept and Dec issues will be Fall/Winter.

Please read the entire submission guidelines and rights before submitting below.

If you submit an editorial before knowing the theme that we are going for in a particular issue at least be sure to gear the March and June issue around Spring/Summer clothing and the September and December issue around Fall/Winter clothing.

*Understand that we're a fashion magazine so we want to see fashion. Underwear shots or nudity are not considered fashion unless they're appropriate to the story you're telling, and even then, you need to move that story forward so real fashion is eventually seen.

*All submissions submitted to Cool America magazine must be exclusive to Cool America and cannot have been previously published anywhere else.

*All submissions to Cool America become the property of Cool America under Cool America Magazine Inc. with the photographer as co-owner of the photos submitted.

*All photos submitted to Cool America will in some way, shape of form be edited to fit the Cool America voice, magazine size and flow of the magazine.

*Submission to Cool America does not guarantee publishing in Cool America and may be published in another entity or not at all.

*Cool America normally does not give out pull letters for submissions. In order to become a regular contributor, please apply here.

*Please contact us via email if you have a situation in which you're in the position to shoot a celebrity or a powerful influencer. We MAY be able to provide you with a pull letter and assistance.

Cool America magazine reserves the right to deny any submission or pull any story for failure to comply with the guidelines and rights for submissions.

About Cool America Magazine

"Cool America" Magazine's focus is on men's fashion, pop-culture and interesting interviews in all genres of the arts. Although the magazine is relatively new we have been able to attract some of the biggest modeling agencies in the world, amazing models and great celebrities -- all due to the quality of the work by contributing photographers, talent and writers. Our December issue had actor Dylan Sprouse on the cover with 4 million Instagram followers. Our March cover will feature Disney star, Cameron Boyce, who has a following of 6.7 million followers and 50 fan clubs worldwide -- which will bring the most attention to our magazine thus far. The March issue's submission theme is "Exclusive" and whatever that word means to you.

Cool America is always looking to showcase fashion editorials from new photographers as well as veterans that have fashion editorials down to a science -- and we will always have a model cover to go along with our celebrity cover -- so don't be surprised if you find your work on one of our covers! We also love great written interviews/stories about singers, actors, up and coming fashion designers, fine artists and those in the arts in general. Writers can also contribute interesting editorials on fitness, health, tech, trending stories, things that are "cool" (hence the name Cool America) and topics that generally appeal to men from their 20's to 40s.

Although we are very open to everyone's voice we still require that fashion editorials be very professional. This means using professionally looking models, the best clothing you can get your hands on, and talented fashion stylists. As far as written editorials go, please check your spelling and grammar and try to accompany your articles with a photo or two.

Important information: If you are selected to be in the magazine there may be some adjustments with photograph size depending on the magazine company we are working with. Also written editorials should be submitted on a Word Doc.

Our website currently is being upgraded due the amount of traffic it has been getting since having Dylan Sprouse on the cover but it will be up soon! In the meantime enjoy the video that's playing.
