Filmmakers, please email your submission to [email protected]

Whilst there is no theme requirement, we prefer a collection of images that have similar stylings or tell a story. Here's some tips to help you know what we're after...

Submit images that have a cohesive theme, eg:
- same model with different poses/compositions
- similar colour schemes
- similar lighting styles
- tells a story

We're looking for artist pieces, so think "would a stranger put this on their wall?" or "does this convey a story?"

Please don't submit images that don't relate, we're not after your portfolio - just a series from it.

We have strict quality requirements in terms of posing, composition, editing, lighting, and colour grading - so please include only your best work.

Please include all credits for the images, as well as a short bio of yourself.

Note: Please know that if your work isn't accepted this time it isn't the end of the world and we absolutely encourage you to submit other work next time. If you'd like more details on why your work wasn't accepted please feel free to reach out to us as we're here to help you grow!
