We are now accepting "Black & White" fashion, portrait, street, homme, fine art and art nude* submissions for the November 2019 issue.

At Vertiqlè Magazine we love the world of black and white, and are inspired by the likes of the great B&W fashion and portrait photographers of the 60's through early 2000's - think Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, David Bailey, Herb Ritts.

Creating great B&W images is a little more complex than applying a greyscale filter across a colour image. We can accept colour images, and we will work with the photographer/artist to create a B&W version that maintains their artistic vision. Please select the "Colour Conversion" submission option to submit non-B&W images.

The Dot Points:

We prefer editorials that feature small or emerging labels or designers.

For editorials that feature only a single brand or label, the submission will be considered an advertorial and will require payment of the applicable advertorial fee for publication.

Be sure to include a title for your editorial. We reserve the right to modify your title or apply a different title to fit with the flow of the issue.

We're happy to accept related written content to a max. 500 words, though we reserve the right to exclude or modify your written content.

For fashion submissions, wardrobe credits are required. For beauty submissions, product credits are required. We do not credit any boutiques, PR companies or shops that items are sourced from. Only brands and designers are credited.

We need credits for the whole team, including models (including agencies), stylists, HMUA's, photographers, etc.

Images should not have been published through any other form of print or online media

Once an image is accepted to be published, it grants us a perpetual license / permission to use the work in any of our publications, websites, videos, marketing pieces, advertisements, and any other mediums or formats used in the creation, dissemination, and monetization of Vertiqlè Magazine.

*any nudity MUST NOT be gratuitous. See specifications re: nudity at

Submissions may be rejected for a variety of reasons, including:

- Work was submitted after the deadline.
- The quality of the images aren’t of a high enough standard.
- The submission doesn’t fit the theme for the issue.

If your submission is rejected, we will advise you so that you can submit elsewhere, but we may not state the reason for the rejection.

About Vertiqlè Magazine

Vertiqlè Magazine is a dedicated platform for photographers and creative teams who appreciate and understand the timeless beauty of black and white imagery. We love the complexity of stories and emotions present in black and white portraiture - no matter the genre.

We’re particularly inspired by the creative genius of Herb Ritts, Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon, Elliott Erwitt, and the many other master photographers who made black and white portraiture their own.

We celebrate creativity by featuring the very best in new, emerging and established photographic talent. Readers of Vertiqlè are themselves creators and visionaries with an obsession for black and white creativity in all its forms.

Together, our contributors and subscribers are building a world of imagination, interpretation and boundless creativity in black and white.
