SWANKY MAGAZINE gives you the opportunity to contribute your work and have it published in a high-end, well-respected independent publication. If you are keen to work with us, we will be more than happy to publish your work. We welcome submissions from all creatives such as photographers, male and female models, make-up artists, hairstylists, designers, and writers. etc.
WE ACCEPT FASHION, BEAUTY, CREATIVE PIECES & WRITTEN SUBMISSIONS
*Your editorial must be cohesive, all from the same shoot to tell a story. If you want a wow feel of your Landscape photo on a double page, make sure your subject is not center to avoid part of the image being hidden when binding the magazine.
* All submissions should be between 3-12 images. If your submissions are over 10 images, we won’t publish all images, a maximum of 8 and a minimum of 2 will be chosen, unless it is a cover story or special feature. We use mostly portrait images, the Lesser the landscape the better. Unless it is intended for a double-page spread.
PLEASE NOTE IMAGES CAN & WILL BE CROPPED TO FIT THE MAGAZINE LAYOUT. (However, we strive to maintain the best image possible) We also advise adequate edging in your image to allow for cropping.
*** WARDROBE CREDITS ***
* For all submissions, wardrobe credits are recommended. They must contain wardrobes and accessories from emerging or independent designers and brands. For Beauty submissions, makeup credits are required. Wardrobe credits will be taken into consideration only if there is a designer’s name. (major brands are NOT allowed e.g Michael Korr or shop like Aliexpress, eBay, Etsy, etc...). ONLY THE DESIGNERS NAME and you can include their website where garments can be found.
*** PURCHASE ***
Once an issue has been released it will be available for purchase via MagCloud. The print copy cost approx. $30-$35.
The purchase link will be sent to you within 48hrs from the day of release. Along with your tears sheets.
Please make sure when you upload the credits that they are correct, that Instagram handles are added to all team members. (if applicable) This must be done before the deadline. If you need any corrections after publishing, there will be a fee of £20.
Make sure this is your final decision to submit your works in SWANKY MAGAZINE. If you want to remove any images after release, there will be a cancellation fee of £80 as we will have to redesign the magazine completely.
