What we are looking for
We are looking to publish creative glamour, fashion/glam and artistic nude content. The key for us is creativity. It doesn't matter if you shoot with a pro camera or you're taking shots with your phone. If the images show that creative touch, we're interested in seeing them. We are really trying to take the content we publish to the next level as we move forward so hopefully we inspire you to push your creative limits and come up with some really eye-catching imagery.
We are looking for 6 to 12 edited images for a submission set. You can send us low resolution image samples via a link to an online storage service such as dropbox or Google drive. If accepted we will need the full sized, full resolution (300dpi) images for print in the magazine along with a signed copyright release from the copyright holder (photographer) and a signed model/artist release from the model(s) in the images submitted.
How to submit content
You can use the submission form on this page to drop us a line with a link to your images on Dropbox, Google Drive or any one of those online storage services. If we love your photos and want to publish them we'll message you back.
If you need some creative direction here is a link to a gallery with some images we pulled off Instagram that we love. If you can produce images that are in line with this inspiration gallery we'll probably love your work too. We'll try to update this gallery from time to time with new images to keep things fresh.
How To Submit Photos VIDEO
Note to models
Models we know you want to get published and sometimes photographers are too busy to submit photos to magazines. So you can do the submitting for them. Below you'll find a link to a photographer release and a model release. Just ask the photographer to grant VX2 Magazine the right to publish the photos by signing a photographer release. Than submit a photo of the photographer release, a photo of your model release and the photos you want to submit for publication and you're done.
Here are two links to the two releases you will need to fill out and submit with your images.
Is VX2 Magazine an online or print magazine?
It's both. We have a PDF version of the magazine people can download and we have a print version of the magazine people can order that usually comes with a free PDF.
If my photos are published do I get a free print copy of the magazine?
No. We use a print on demand service that prints and ships the magazines. We have to pay for each issue of the magazine just like everyone else. But we do send you .jpg tear sheets and a PDF copy of the magazine.
Will you let me know if my photos are not accepted for publication?
Depending on how many submissions we have sometimes it's hard to get back to everybody. If you don't hear from us within 3 weeks you can assume the submission didn't make it through.
Do you edit the photos I submit?
No we don't edit or touch up your photos. However, we sometimes use submitted photos in advertisements for the magazine in which case we may put the VX2 logo on the photo.
What size should I crop the photos to so they fit in the Magazine?
Please don't crop your photos at all. Our graphic designer will crop the photos to fit in the magazine. To make things easier for us please send your full sized edited photos. 300dpi is best.
Do you pay photographers for content?
Not at this time. Right now this is just a creative endeavour. We want to share your work and give you a platform to get published. That being said we hope to make enough money with this project so that one day we will be able to give back to the contributes.
Can you un-publish my photos from the Magazine?
Umm that's not how it works. Once photos are published in magazines and shipped out there is no way to un-publish them.
I have a beautiful set and one of the pictures looks better in black and white. Can I submit one black and white picture and the rest in color?
NO. All color or all black and white.
I shot this amazing set a few years ago but I never got a model release from the model. Can I still submit the photos?
After I submit the photos who owns the copyright?
You do. VX2 does not take copyright control of any of the images you submit. You still own your images 100%.
I don't like the photo you selected for the pictorial can you replace it with another photo?
No. Once the magazine is published it's done. Let's keep things simple and follow this simple rule. Don't submit photos you don't want us to publish.
I got a really cool behind the scenes video from my shoot that got published do you want to feature it on your blog?
Absolutely. Any behind the scenes or video content is always welcome. We'll be happy to post it online and promote you and the Magazine.
I shot this really cool photo set with my phone can I submit it?
Yes. Provided that the photos are large enough for print and they are creative feel free to submit them.
