The ultimate list of submissions based fashion magazines
As both a photographer and a magazine editor, it’s important for me to stay in touch with the latest and greatest in the up-and-coming creative market. I love to discover new talents in photography, hair, makeup and styling. The way I do it? Flipping through magazines. Whether it’s a small digital magazine or a large print publication, I love seeing who’s hot, and who’s coming up. A lot of submissions based fashion magazine lists unfortunately have out of date titles, as independent magazines tend to come and go. But I’ve put together the ultimate list of fashion magazines that take submissions that are still active in 2018, and waiting for your fashion photography submissions.
How do I submit to fashion magazines?
Most submissions based fashion magazines will outline specific submissions guidelines on their website. These are super helpful so your submission has a higher chance of being reviewed and accepted. As an editor myself, I can tell you that it’s exceedingly frustrating to have contributors submit work that goes against the submissions guidelines. They’re there for a reason – follow them!
Why should I submit to fashion magazines?
I’ve got five reasons why you should submit to magazines, in case you’re hesitant on getting your work out there. Submissions are a great way to start filling your portfolio with tear sheets, create connections within your industry, and establish credibility. Fashion magazines that take submissions are perfect for taking a crack at the fashion industry as a photographer, stylist, beauty artist… you name it!
100+ fashion magazines that take submissions
These fashion magazines range from print magazines, to digital, to print-on-demand. Take a peek at their websites to learn exactly how their magazine publishes, and what the right fit is for you.
Hesitant about digital magazines? Don’t be! There are tons of amazing fashion publications that are solely digital due to the costs and efforts of a print magazine. You still get tear sheets, a beautiful layout and a reading experience. Give ‘em a chance!
Ready, set, submit!
Now all you’ve got to do is shoot and submit to these submissions based fashion magazines. I’ll be updating this list with more wonderful fashion magazines that I find, so keep checking back when you’re ready to get published.
