GENERAL GUIDELINES & TIPS:
- DIVERSITY: Our publication prides itself on showcasing the diversity within our generation. All submissions are welcome regardless of medium or subject-matter.
- VARIETY: It is recommended that you provide us with a variety of images. For example, vertical/portrait images are considered as contenders for magazine covers. Horizontal/landscape images make for good double-page spreads.
- FASHION AND BEAUTY submissions are required to have more than 3 looks, as well as clothing from a variety of brands.
- If more than half of the outfits are from one specific brand, then it is considered an advertorial, which is a clothing brand’s advertisement in the form of an editorial submission.
- Advertorials are accepted and encouraged, but are priced differently to creative submissions.
- INDEMNIFICATION: Defend and indemnify the Publisher (ONLYCHILD Magazine) fully against all liabilities, damages, costs, debts, claims, and expenses which the Publisher may suffer or incur from a 3rd party claim where the material published infringes or misappropriates any third 3rd proprietary or intellectual property as a result of the breach of the above clause.

Under the circumstance that a member of your team does not wish to be credited in this format, please explicitly state that this is intentional.

Online credits can be amended.
