Very useful info so far. Thank you all for sharing (especially to Camerosity)!

Couple of dumb questions.

1. If I want to submit an image to a magazine, it shouldn't be online any where?

2. Once I submit an image to a magazine, can I submit the same image to another magazine or just hold onto it till I hear back from first magazine?

Cheers!

1. Some magazines make an exception for the photographer's business web site (the theory apparently being that most photographers' sites don't get much traffic). Others don't. Most magazines won't mind if the photos are in an area where access is controlled. (I keep some of my photos that are pending publication in password-protected folders on my portfolio page.) Of course this wouldn't apply if large numbers of people have access to the photos - like on a pay site.

As a publisher explained several years ago, he dislikes receiving letters, postcards, emails or phone calls from readers asking, "Why I am paying for a subscription to your magazine to see photos I've already seen somewhere else?" And he dislikes it even more if the message is scribbled on a renewal invoice that's returned without a check or credit card number.

2. I wouldn't simultaneously submit the same photos (or photos identifiable as being from the same shoot) to two magazines unless you don't want to work with them more than once.

It might be okay to submit different photos from the same shoot to different publications as long as they aren't in direct competition - to a travel magazine and a food magazine, for example. But most of the larger magazines (and those that pay for photos) likely wouldn't approve of this either.

Used to be, when prints or transparencies were submitted, the magazine would return them to the photographer. When the photographer got his photos back, he knew the magazine wasn't going to publish them, and he was free to submit them elsewhere.

If I haven't heard from a magazine in six months, I might submit the photos elsewhere. Depends on the circumstances.

That's why it's important to select the publication carefully before submitting. A few days of research could reduce the possibility of sending your photos to a magazine and having them tied up for six months but never published.

Here is a site that lists all the fashion magazines that have submissions: http://picease.com. You are able to add magazines missing from the list here: http://picease.com/register/submitter

I hope this makes it easier for people to find the best magazines to submit too.

My magazine, MIABELLA. We were print, but we transitioned two months ago to strictly digital (bi-monthly) via iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, and online.  Please feel to submit sets that focus on teen girl fashion and is relevant and available (i.e. please don't submit a fashion story using F/W 2012 apparel).  I am really excited to work with innovate and fun photographers!

FYI, in my personal experience, print distributors and retailers (B&N in particular) are not people with a high level of integrity. Don't get involved with print distribution unless you have a wing in your building specifically set aside for legal.

Thank you!

I never know what to say when I submit.  I'd like to think images speak for themselves, but they see what you say in the email before they even open the images.

Each publication has different requirements for submitting images.You just have to read them or shoot them an email if you have any questions.

I was just wondering what is the protocol for a makeup artist or hairstylist submitting to magazines? I have done some shoots and there are no release forms so when I am given the images could I submit of I let all parties know ahead of time?

You should talk to the photographer about submitting or email the publication.But it's a lot easier if you do a shoot that was intended for a editorial rather than a shoot that wasn't. So in that way you and all parties involved can discuss a release agreement or the publication's release agreement.

Hello all!
Just wondering if you have any that are catered towards male models. I am having a great degree of difficulty finding some to submit to. I'd greatly appreciate any links!

Thanks a lot!

I own Swimsuit Illustrated Magazine and we are always looking for contributing models, stylists, make-up artist, fashion designers or photographers. I have owned the mag for about a year and trying to change it to a lifestyle magazine based on Swimwear and Beachwear.  Please send any work for consideration to billy@ssimag.com

Hey everyone!  I found a lot of useful stuff on here, but given that this thread is a few years old, there were a lot of broken links and publications that no longer exist and so forth.  So I made a new one!  Please reply to my thread if there are any that I missed!
