- We are ONLY looking for FASHION, and BEAUTY photography stories. Do NOT send us portraits of your girlfriend, landscapes, cityscapes, still life or anything that is NOT specifically fashion or beauty.

- We are only interested in a series of images that are part of the same fashion/style story and go together as a story. Do not submit images from different shoots that have nothing to do with each other. So not submit 6 images of the same outfit and nothing else.

- Fashion Editorials should show photos of AT LEAST SIX DIFFERENT OUTFITS aka LOOKS. Beauty shoots should have A MINIMUM of 5 different makeup or hairstyle changes.


- Please visit our website to see the kinds of shoots we publish if the above is confusing.

- All submitted images must be final, retouched images.

- If we are interested, then we will contact you within a week.

- We will consider previously published work for digital.

- We will not publish images with watermarks.

- Team credits are essential for all submissions. Please be sure to double-check that all persons involved in the submission are included in the credits and their names are spelled correctly, along with the social media handles. If for any reason editorial is published with missing or incorrect credits - this is the submitter's responsibility.

- We prefer to receive submissions from the photographer, however, if you are not the photographer we will need a release from the photographer/copyright holder.

- Payment will not be refunded if you decide to cancel, or not publish, after submission is accepted.

- Submission of work acknowledges understanding and compliance with our policies and procedures.
