"Your Ideal Shape is a Healthy One"

This is our annual special swimsuit issue. We're looking for photos that showcase the hard work, dedication, and pride teens take in their overall physical health and well-being. The theme is relatively open as long as it is swimsuit related. Preference will be given to photos depicting teens enjoying time out in the sun or near/in a body of water. Content must be age-appropriate.

Mood Board:

TTMO is always looking for high quality content showcasing teens expressing themselves creatively. If you would like to submit content for consideration, please review the guidelines below:​



2) All photography submissions must include written permission from both the model (or model's parent if model is under the age of 18) and photographer for publication. If are in need of a release, we will provide you with one.


4) Photography submissions must include the names of all team members responsible for the creation of the photograph, including model(s), photographer, photo editor, makeup artist, hair stylist, and clothing stylist. Instagram tags for all team members must be included as well.

5) Please submit a collection of images with at least 3 different looks. Variety is essential. It is best to send at least 3 images of each look so that we have options when creating a layout for publication. If you send us a set of images with only 1 look, those images will not likely be published.

6) Submitted images must meet the following format requirements:

Image size minimum 3300px x 5100px, maximum 4024px x 6048px

JPEG format: 8-bit sRGB color profile saved at very high quality (10 on the JPEG quality dialogue box slider)​

Our main goal is to inspire positive growth in teens by adhering to the following message:​​

“Through love, respect, and good will towards others, true beauty can be found in all of us.”

​Although the TTMO team is composed of experienced teen models, modeling and participating in creative photoshoots are just a portion of what we do. TTMO tries to promote the beauty within us all. We believe true beauty begins with the positivity and kindness that we share with the world around us.

TTMO tries to develop this by instilling a strong sense of positivity, integrity, individuality, diversity, equality, personal accountability, and dedication to each person’s work. TTMO delivers this message by recognizing these young individuals via TTMO magazine and through various social media platforms including Facebook and Instagram.

TTMO strongly encourages the improvement of our team members by requiring that each member regularly participate in positive activities including community service projects, assisting their peers whenever possible, and making public appearances to encourage our mission statement with others.

By reinforcing these positive values, we believe our young adults can grow to be strong members of society who understand that through love, respect, and good will towards others, true beauty can be found in all of us. ■
